This year has been a busy year for summer weddings. It can get very warm here in Fresno during the summer, so I welcome the opportunity to get out of town and drive above the smog in Yosemite valley. Tenaya Lodge is just above 5000′, far above the busy cities that stand at the feet of this mountain. At night the clean, clear air makes for pretty photos after sunset.
Moravia Winery in Fresno recently started offering their facility for outdoor weddings. This was my first opportunity to shoot a wedding there. It was nice to have the pretty vineyards close by for photos. We were also lucky to have rare full super moon out that evening.
This bride was raised in a family who cherished going to Disneyland. She and her sister, Kellie, played dress-up with their mother’s wedding gown as girls, and I can imagine her seeing herself as a fairytale princess waiting for her prince. According to Kellie, she had her wedding all planned out – she just needed to find her prince, and she did just that with Nicholas. Wishing you both a lifetime of fairytale happiness and many happy trips to Disneyland with your own children.
