Glacier Point Yosemite wedding portrait

Glacier Point in Yosemite is the most beautiful, picturesque place in California, which makes it the perfect location for wedding portraits.  The bride and groom stand in the clouds, overlooking Yosemite's picturesque valley.  It was very cold that day, so the bride wore a beautiful vintage fur coat, and the groom helped keep her warm. They were both comfortable in their cowboy boots.  Half Dome is in the background, making the most beautiful backdrop I've ever photographed.  Minutes later, the pink sun sank below the horizon and it was dark.  

You can also have your elopement or wedding ceremony at Glacier Point.

This photo wasn't taken on their wedding day.  The couple chose me to do a Day After Session, which is a portrait session some time after a wedding.  They had a friend take their wedding photos, then sorely regretted it.  They decided they wanted to invest in beautiful photos they can hang in their home.

That day we also shot in the valley behind the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, as well as in a meadow with a deer!
