beth + keith: canyons, waterfalls + a romantic destination elopement at taft point in yosemite, california

Weddings & Engagement
July 26, 2017
these two are adventure seekers through and through.
beth wanted to do a true elopement out in nature, a place where they always enjoy spending their time together. they had known for some time that yosemite is a magical place so it was really a no-brainer in having it as the spot to have their wedding ceremony.
we all met at the lodge for some lobby portraits they signed the marriage license on the hood of their truck, that was adorned with bikes and kayaks.
i was pleased to be a witness and happy to sign the dotted line for these two before we all loaded in and headed to taft point.
the ceremony spot was a mile hike through the woods. lead by the fearless bride and groom. they got married above the valley overlooking waterfalls + meadows under blue skies.
we took our time hiking back and stopped for photos along the way. ended the day overlooking half dome.
destination wedding ftw.

Some of these details included table arrangements that were dried day-old flowers, wine from a solar powered plant in Napa, aisle arch made by their neighbor, mason ja ...

Paris Moments: Enchanting Anniversary Trocadero Stroll along le Rive Seine
From the moment I saw this beautiful brides show-stopping fuchsia number I knew this shoot was going to go down as one of my favorite sessions. Ever. We started out along the stairways up to the famous Trocadero, playing with the lush blossoms and trees that lined the path. These two were celebrating their one year anniversary with a session in Paris. and the morning couldn't have been more lovely.  I can't help but notice when I look at these photos how they made the city come to live. As with most of my sessions in Paris, shooting very early is most always recommended since we basically get the city to ourselves. We played along the s ...
