“It is by far the grandest of all the special temples of Nature I was ever permitted to enter.”
– John Muir, 1868.
Yosemite truly is an awe inspiring, magical place to not just visit, but be lucky enough to witness these two wonderful people devote their lives to one another. I’ve shot weddings in some beautiful cathedrals and temples, but being surrounded by mountains, the Merced River flowing on by and Yosemite Falls in the distance was very special indeed. Some might say the perfect place for these two world travelers (American and a Canadian living in Australia, with guest coming from at least 7 different countries) to celebrate their love. Here are some highlights of their day, which was followed the day after* with a magnificent sunset drive to Glacier Point, for one last toast as the warm evening sun kissed the top of Half Dome and gave D+B the perfect send off.
*A day after shoot is something that I love to do, especially for destination weddings. It gives us the chance to further explore some cool spots wherever your destination is, plus it means that the day of your wedding you can spend more time with your friends and family.
