Destination Weddings: Yosemite California

I look forward to sharing wedding photos every week with those who care to see them. Often it's the bride and her friends and family. Sometimes, however, I can't share photos from weddings I shoot. This is one of those cases. So while I was in California shooting a beautiful wedding, with a beautiful bride at the end of May, I don't have wedding photos to share with you on this blog. However, while I was down there I got to go explore some in Yosemite.

By the time I had landed and gotten to my hotel, it was around 11:30. So I sat down to check the weather in Yosemite to see when the best time to arrive the next day would be. It was a far drive from lake Tahoe, but I had nothing to do, and it's one of the most beautiful places in the world. Turns out, sunrise was the only time of day that looked to not be covered by clouds. Sunrise would be my time.

Turns out, if I wanted to be there by sunrise, I would have to leave at that time, right away. So, three red bull and a mountain dew later I was arriving at Yosemite right before sunrise, in the fog. Turns out the weather was wrong. I ended up waiting for about 3 hours to get a photo I was happy with, and the clouds added some great drama, but man I was tired. While I may not be able to share any Destination wedding photos with you, I can at least share some of my photos from that trip. I hope you love them. :)
