World renowned, ruggedly beautiful, and a haven for adventurous souls. Simply put, it is the ideal destination for couples who want the ultimate elopement experience. Already sold on an elopement in Yosemite, but you’re like, “how the heck do I make this happen?” Read on, friend!
The short answer is anything you want it to be! That’s the beauty of an elopement. If you want to climb a mountain with your partner and tie the knot surrounded by scenic views, you can do that. If you want a small, intimate guest list and a simple location in the middle of a beautiful meadow, you can do that too. No matter what your wildest elopement dreams are, you can probably make them happen. That’s why Yosemite is the ideal elopement destination! With 1,169 square miles of mountains, lakes, rivers, and wide-open space to explore, you will have no trouble finding the elopement destination of your dreams in Yosemite National Park.
Yosemite is my happy place. I have spent probably too much time there (if that’s even possible). But all of the long camping trips, mountain bike rides, and hikes have paid off for something: I am an expert when it comes to Yosemite National Park. I can plan your elopement from start to finish and guide you through your day with so much ease that you won’t even have to think twice. I’ll whiz you around all of the tourist traffic and guide you to Yosemite’s hidden gems, all while taking photos that candidly capture you and your love. I can be your tour guide, your wedding planner, your caterer, your officiant, and your photographer all wrapped into one fun, lively package.

I'm not just a photographer
i am a:
I'm the help you need to make your Yosemite elopement a blissful amazing day!!
I have been fortunate enough to live in and
photograph so many beautiful places in California, from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to Pacific Coast Highway. Now, Yosemite has become my playground, and a home for me and my family. We’re even lucky enough to have two cabins here! In the summers you can find us swimming in the Merced River, while winter brings sledding, snowman building, and hot cocoa.
As Mark Twain said, “To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.” I have been passionately capturing joy, magic and serenity in in Yosemite National Park for 8 years. I would be honored to share that joy with you as your photographer and guide on your elopement
day. From formal ceremonies at the grand Ahwahnee Hotel to adventurous elopements at Taft Point, I’ve photographed just about every type of Yosemite wedding you could imagine. You could say California is my home, but it’s more than just that. It is my playground, my muse, and my nest for my other three muses (my kids).
