Yosemite. A place that I’d put off visiting for the first 29 years of my existence. I’d imagined it to be overrun with tourists and that it couldn’t compare with the “real” mountains we have in the Northwest. I was so very wrong. Meeting Paula + Chris here was a treat. They flew over from Northern Ireland to elope before heading out on an epic honeymoon of travels. For all of us to have fresh eyes on this place added to the excitement. None of us had seen the ceremony location before we hiked up. We hadn’t scouted for portraits or done any planning. Just wake up, get married and chase the light together..
