Katherine & Chris’s Adventurous Yosemite Elopement

Shooting a wedding at Yosemite has been on our bucket list for a while now, and Katherine & Chris gave us our wish earlier this month — and in the process, we got to spend a day with the coolest couple. Our day was packed with fun and adventure: after an early morning drive into the park, we met up with them at Tunnel View for a cute little first look, then headed to Cathedral Beach where about a dozen of their closest friends & family gathered for the wedding ceremony. Afterwards, we regrouped at Glacier Point and then made the hike over to Taft Point where we all braved the cold for the sunset to peek out for a brief minute — which is all we needed for some epic sunset photos.

Samantha & Andrew | Yosemite National Park Wedding

Ever since we first visited Yosemite National Park a few years ago, we’d always been waiting for another opportunity to go back. We were so excited that Samantha & Andrew chose to have their wedding at Yosemite with their closest friends and family and brought us along to document the day. I loved the intimacy of such a small wedding along at the picturesque Cathedral Beach, tucked inside a calm bend of the Merced River.

After their ceremony, we took advantage of the setting and got some great portraits of the newlyweds with Cathedral Point and Yosemite Falls as backdrops. Although we ended up with tons of bug bites, in the end it was totally worth it! Congrats Sam & Andrew!
