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!
