Ashley + Dustin | Sequoia Intimate Wedding

The perfect beauty of an intimate wedding underneath the trees is always the best.

It was absolutely a dream, spending the day with Ashley and Dustin - getting married under the Sequoia boughs.

After a ceremony at the Parker Group, we explored Crescent Meadow, ending up at Beetle Rock to open a bottle of wine at sunset.

Jacques + Lisa, Taft Point Yosemite

We're called 'Sequoia Weddings' - but our love is vast for the outdoors and all national parks. Yosemite is one of our favorite spots for engagement shoots and elopements - striking sunsets atop granite ledges.

Two months freshly engaged, Jacques, Lisa, and I hiked a little over a mile to Taft Point - one of my favorite Yosemite destinations. We sat on a ledge, watching the sun set on the hazy horizon, and sipped canned wine through altitude-induced laughter. 

Moments like this are so beautiful - spending time with lovers outdoors.

Marissa & Justin | Beetle Rock, Sequoia National Park

We woke up in the morning and stumbled from the campsite to find a heavy cloud resting on the ceremony site at Beetle Rock, in Sequoia National Park. You never know what kind of weather you'll find in the High Sierra, and this cloudcover was predictably unpredictable. The fog disappeared, then the rain came, then it started snowing like there was no tomorrow. After deciding to carry on with the initial plan rain or shine, Marissa walked down the aisle and the rain stopped, clouds parted, and sun beamed down warmly as we all stripped off our raincoats.

Summer Wedding in Crescent Meadow

Tom and Kara had an amazingly special wedding in Crescent Meadow, Sequoia National Park. Because of park restrictions, only thirty people are allowed in the meadow for this type of ceremony - so you can imagine how sweet and intimate it was, saying 'I do' in the beautiful meadow under gigantic Sequoia trees. Reception afterwards took place at Wuksashi Lodge. Photography by Peter Amend of A Fierce Love

Elopement Sequoia National Park

The best part about a mountain elopement is that you can say your vows just about wherever you'd like! Whether it's a grove of Sequoia trees, fern meadow, fresh snowpack, or somewhere on the trail - you can say your vows to each other with just a photographer, officiant, and a couple of witnesses!
