One of my favorite things about weddings in Yosemite is that they are NEVER alike. I get to meet people from all over the world and the only thing in common is their great love for the mountains and the outdoors. Julie and Jeff were no exception. They live in Colorado but had never actually been to Yosemite before the day of their wedding. They gathered 25 of their closest friends, rented an amazing cabin outside the park, and got their first taste of Yosemite about 10 minutes before we met. It was a blast showing them around and capturing the amazing scenes all around us. Then to cap off the day, we headed out to Taft Point with several friends in tow for what’s starting to become one of the most iconic Yosemite portraits. I’m a little sad that one of my secret spaces is becoming so well known (I’ve been going out there for over 25 years), but on the flip-side, DAMN it’s an awe-inspiring sight. Enjoy!
