Here’s a snowy winter adventure elopement at Yosemite National Park with a few family members gathered for my last wedding of the year.  I received a call from a wonderful Nashville couple, Victoria and Richard, who wanted to elope in Yosemite and they were hoping for a winter wedding.  The week prior to their wedding it snowed and provided some epic landscape photos for us to explore and experience. They opted for the adventure, intimate and small, which is what I do often in the mountains.  They stayed and got ready at the Tenaya Lodge and then met me down in Yosemite Valley for their wedding at the famous Yosemite Chapel.  After they exchanged vows at the alter, they celebrated with the ringing the bell that echoed in the wilderness  As they walked out of the church, the traffic of vehicles congested along the main road celebrated in unison with honks.

I had a rad time hiking in the snow with my couple and enjoying the beautiful flavor the wilderness around us.  Here are a few images from their snowy wintery wedding Yosemite.

WHAT TO BRING:

– Pack for the cold weather, gloves, jackets, head warmers, boots, etc.
– We will probably have snow, but no guarantees. The roads are always plowed from Reno to Tahoe
– You may need to rent a AWD or 4WD to feel safe if you’re flying in.
– A small backpack with food, water, some clothes, and space for a few lenses and camera.
– Bring money to enjoy Tahoe. The Hotel has so many options, Spa, a nice heated pool and hot tub.
– Bring your photography gear, just minimal, wide and portrait lenses are good.
– You will have an assignment after booking, so you will have time to prepare on what to bring.
– Bring shorts for swimming in the hotel pool
– Your computer for editing your images (if you can)
– That’s it for now. I may think of things later.
