Here are a few of the many highlights from Kathryn and Ryan’s wedding at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park. This great couple from New York City came all the way out to California for the celebration. It was fun to see just how excited all of the guests were to be out in Yosemite, with the beautiful fall colors and the imposing natural beauty all around. I would meet guests in before and after the wedding chatting about what hikes they had been on, showing each other photos, and having a wonderful time.
This was simply a spectacular destination wedding location, a great time of year, a perfectly planned wedding, and an amazing couple. I couldn’t have asked for much more. We did have a bit of rain that moved the ceremony indoors, but it made for some great umbrella photos afterwards. The dusky low light and rain for the ceremony and photos afterwards was challenging, but it added a wonderful moody feel to the images. Check out some of my favorites below!
How cute are these?

I’ve been wondering how to work in an umbrella into wedding pictures. I like how this turned out. Rain during the wedding day can be a wonderful thing! It did let up and let us get some other shots a few minutes later though.
I’ve traveled to Yosemite many times, with the Ahwahnee being one of my favorite places to visit while down in the valley. It was great to put the two together for this amazing wedding. Congratulations to Katheryn and Ryan!
