Yosemite Elopement

Yosemite & the Sierra Nevada...Possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world, with no shortage of awe-inspiring landscapes. And there's nothing quite like that pine and sage-scented alpine air. Then there are the granite formations, dramatic waterfalls, ethereal mountain meadows, and the Merced River meandering its way through the valley floor. (Can you tell I love Yosemite?) You would be hard pressed to not find a spark of inspiration somewhere. It certainly has inspired countless artists and photographers (including one of my faves Ansel Adams), who spent their careers returning here time and time again for its beauty and evolution throughout the seasons. So having the opportunity to combine this incredible landscape with an elopement shoot made me a happy gal. Josh+Charlotte couldn't be more adorable (and pretty dang easy on the eyes), and florals were provided by the loveliest Larisa of Bewilder. We made our way above the valley just as a storm started to form, bringing on all the moody, romantic fall vibes. An A-frame cabin just outside the park invited us back in the evening to warm up (which also induced a new obsession of mine to own an A-frame in the woods some day!) So I give you Josh+Charlotte, with an appearance by Yosemite National Park. Bring on the fall!
