Hallie and Matt | Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

Hallie and Matt traveled clear across the United States to get married in the most beautiful place on Earth - Yosemite National Park. I honestly don't think there is a better wedding location than Yosemite. If you haven't been there, you owe it to yourself to make the trek! Hallie and Matt were fabulous - so much energy, so easy to laugh, they're the exact kind of people that make my job so rewarding. I thank them for the opportunity to document their wedding in Yosemite. Enjoy my favorites from the day!

Wen-Chih and Matt | An Ahwahnee Wedding | Yosemite National Park, CA

One of the highlights of every wedding season is a trip or two up to Yosemite to photograph a wedding and Wen-Chih and Matt's wedding was no exception. A stunningly beautiful day, with perfect weather, surrounded by their closest friends and family. There was tons of joy in the valley that day and it was an honor to be the one chosen to record it for the family. Enjoy...

Jenn and Brandon | Yosemite Wedding at the Ahwahnee Hotel | Yosemite National Park, CA

Jenn and Brandon's wedding was my last Yosemite wedding of the year and it took advantage of the great fall color in Yosemite Valley. The color was absolutely spectacular and it was a joy to spend the day searching out the most vivid locations. I love these small Yosemite weddings - everyone has such an amazing time and there's always a room full of personalities. Thanks Jenn and Brandon for sharing your day with me, please enjoy some of my favorites from the day.

Marissa and Geoff | Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

Marissa and Geoff were married on a beautiful, warm day in Yosemite National Park. After getting ready and having a tea ceremony at a cabin in the Yosemite West development we all rode together down into the valley, navigating some epic summertime weekend traffic! Then it was time for the ceremony underneath the old apple tree on the Ahwahnee Hotel's Wedding Lawn. I'm so excited to be able to shoot 5 different weddings in Yosemite this summer and fall, it's an amazing place! Enjoy a few of my favorite images from the day...

Allison and Sepehr | Tenaya Lodge Wedding | Fish Camp, CA

Allison and Sepehr were married in early October on one of the strangest weather days I've ever experienced. We started under blue skies with the most beautiful scattered clouds followed by a huge thunderstorm that arrived just before the ceremony. Thankfully the ceremony was in a sheltered area and we got most of the photography done before the storms hit. As a bonus, the sky was really cool when we went outside to do a couple portraits after the rain moved on. Check out a few of my favorites from the day...

Sarah and Edward | From the Wedding Lawn at the Ahwahnee in Yosemite National Park

I gotta love a May that sends me to Yosemite National Park TWICE for weddings. The first was an amazing day, and Sarah and Edward's wedding didn't disappoint either. After several straight days of rain - and more rain in the forecast for the wedding day - remarkably the clouds parted and didn't drop more than the tiniest of a sprinkle at any point during the day. Sarah was total trooper marching around the park, unafraid of a little dirt, in the quest for some amazing portraits. Sarah and Edward were married on the Wedding Lawn and the historic Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley following an afternoon roaming Cook's Meadow, El Capitan Meadow, and the Yosemite Falls trails for their portrait session.

Heather and Andy | A Yosemite Wedding from the Historic Chapel and Ahwahnee Hotel

Heather called me just a few short months ago to ask me about shooting her wedding in Yosemite. Of course I nearly leapt out of my chair at the chance. I've been going to Yosemite frequently since I was a young child. Many of the earliest photographs I ever made were in the park, so the prospect of shooting weddings there gets me all kinds of excited. I've photographed a few weddings in Yosemite Valley and I look forward to shooting many more Yosemite weddings. Below are a few of my favorites from Heather and Andy's wedding from the historic chapel in Yosemite Valley and their reception in the beautiful Mural Room in the old Ahwahnee Hotel - and of course many
