Ran ran & Haonan | Yosemite Elopement

Ranran & Haonan | Yosemite Elopement

Summing this day into a paragraph or two of words is going to be tough. Ranran and Haonan reached out to us and said they were wanting to fly all the way from China to get married in Northern California, I was SO dang stoked. These two were open to suggestions on where to get married and of course, Yosemite National Park is always the first place that comes to mind. I remembered seeing Yosemite for the first time back in February early this year and being blown away at it’s beauty and vastness. It is truly one of the most unique and beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Not only does it offer mountains and ridiculous rock formations, but it’s home to some of the most beautiful and robust waterfalls around.

So, you get it. Yosemite is stupid beautiful. But so was this entire day! From the time I walked into the house to capture these two getting ready, I felt so welcomed. Ranran and Haonan were so open to doing anything and everything we could to create  a memorable day in all aspects. These two recited their vows from memory in the forest and ended the day with a beautiful portrait session near Glacier point. They also taught me certain phrases in their language to help keep them laughing. I’m still not 100% sure what I was saying though. Oh well!

Here are some highlights from this beautiful Yosemite elopement!

Every photographer in the world would be a liar if they said they never get nervous before shooting. We crack ourselves up sometimes because we get it in our heads that we are going to forget everything we know! On the contrary, I literally love just wingin' it. You can plan as much as you want for the style or mood of the shoot, but I think what's most exciting is seeing the authentic energy and love a couple brings. You see, I had never ...

We had never offered that before and wanted to put ourselves out there and see if it's somethings we could offer in the future. Nicolette and Jason opted to drive up from Alabama and rent out Nashville's famous Fox House. It was so great to meet these guys and shoot some rad photos for them! I was wanting to bring a new angle into our business. I wanted to offer sessions that catered to people who had started the ...
