aly + james: sunshine in wapping court + this charming london, england engagement session

Weddings & Engagement
September 18, 2017

before i jumped on a plane from croatia to go visit + shoot with these two, the weather told me it was a 90% chance of rain. well, the sun came out. funny thing is, these two shine so bright that the sun wasn’t even necessary.

london is a posh + sophisticated town, something i’ve taken notice of ever since visiting as a child. its a city that embraces its past and builds upon it in such a refined way that you would think it was always meant to be.

it was such a treat to shoot these two gems. in our initial meetings we instantly bonded on performing + the theater + musical chit-chat. when we met in person little changed. we gabbed the whole afternoon.

these two are characters through + through + their love story is as infectious as they come.

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 ...
