Brian had enlisted a few friends to help pull off the perfect surprise for his girlfriend Jenny: they were going to take a walk with their dog along Stow Lake one sunny weekend afternoon, and along the way, he’d stop to surprise her with a marriage proposal right in front of a waterfall right at the edge of the lake.

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!
We came with Sue & Bryan to Uvas Canyon County Park a couple of months ago for their engagement photos, but our second meeting was for something more special — their wedding. At this same park, we, together with about 100 other guests, witnessed the joyous union of this loving couple. [ read more … ]
Uvas Canyon County Park holds a special meaning to Sue and Bryan: he had proposed to her at the top of the hill, and they’ll be getting married at the park this upcoming spring. So last week, we decided to do a venue walk-through and shoot their engagement photos at this extremely memorable place of theirs! I love how adventurous Sue and Bryan were 😀 It had been raining for a few days so the water in the creek was pretty high, and some paths were blocked by the water, but they didn’t mind sitting on the wet logs or climbing up on the big rocks so that we could get the best angles. The photos at the end, of course, were well worth the effort! David and I cannot wait to be back in a few months to capture their big day!
