hey there!

as seen on:

On July 20th, I photographed the marriage of two dear friends in one of the top elopement destinations in the country: Yosemite National Park.  Todd and Lisa said their vows among the redwoods with a stunning backdrop of mountains. My heart couldn’t get enough.  But, more than the beautiful wedding destination, the love between them was incredible. As was my opportunity to photograph them become one flesh under God.

In addition to photographing them in such a perfect place to elope, I was near tears being one of two witnesses to this private, God-glorifying ceremony. Todd and Lisa were married in Tuolumne Meadows (just two days later it was closed because of the Ferguson fires). As the smoke was rising behind them, a storm was approaching; there was lightning and thunder in the distance. It was cold and had begun to rain, but Steve delivered the most heartfelt sermon I’ve heard. And, Todd and Lisa’s vows were real and deep and unwavering as the storm continued over the mountains approaching us quickly.  God is SO good! He took a broken story and made it into pure joy, and all for His Glory. You could feel His presence in the mountains and trees on that day, and we all made note of it.

Lisa chose to wear a stunning Sweet Caroline Styles skirt and romantic bodysuit; I can’t get enough of the style and the fact that she and Todd were willing to be hike in their wedding day outfits for the perfect shot!  Give me all the adventurous couples please!  On a side note, I think it’s incredibly wild that the Bible verse Lisa had engraved on Todd’s suspenders is exactly what played out before us on their wedding day:

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, 
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”
