It’s easy to dream. And often times it’s less easy to make those dreams a reality.

I remember my first conversation with Josh and Shannon. It kicked off with them telling me about their dream to hike around all of the National Parks together. If starting the dream in Yosemite wasn’t enough, try eloping there as well to kick off the tour! Hailing from Illinois, Josh and Shannon have never been to Yosemite before. As their photographer and guide for the day, I was psyched and honored to show them Yosemite and some of my favorite places.

There are a number of approaches that I’ve witnessed over the years of documenting couple’s wedding day. 100% of the time, the approach that seems to yield the greatest of experiences are those that are intentionally open-ended. Where there is minimal planning and exploration is top priority. From my experience, when you loosen your grip on the perfectly-planned, opportunity arises. This almost sounds like an arguable equation for adventure :)

It was also awesome to witness Shannon overcome her fear of heights for the sake of a handful of images that they’d have to look back on forever. Images amongst granite cliffs showcasing the reality and true scale of all things Yosemite. Congrats Josh and Shannon!
