Ashely + Kris | Snowy Winter Wedding at Yosemite Valley Chapel


Yosemite National Park in California is known for it’s beautiful views and amazing collection of wildlife and natural wonders. Winter gives it and even more unique look as the snow falls and covers the towering mountains and the waterfalls fall with crisp, fresh water. So to book at wedding at the Yosemite Valley Chapel I was very excited for the opportunity.

Ashley and Kris wanted something that not only was beautiful to get married at, but was simple as well for their family without all the extras that come with more extravagant weddings. It was wonderful to make these images with them on their special day will enjoying the view of this epic valley to help celebrate their union together.

Thank you so much to Ashley and Kris for letting my document their small and sweet wedding day. Next time I will wear some warmer shoes. Lesson learned!

Like I’ve shown before in many of my posts, not everything about weddings need to be extravagant or over the top to be something special. While there is nothing wrong of course with some decadence and flair to a wedding, sometimes keeping it intimate is the better route to take. Truthfully, the reason this is happening is because of two people and their love, so what matters is what they want to do to celebrate that, not to give into norms. Most of my couples have this way of thinking, which is one of the reasons why they are so awesome. That’s how Marie and Todd felt about their wedding.
