The Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park just might be one of my most favorite places to photograph a wedding. There is just something special about small intimate weddings and the Ahwahnee is the perfect place for one. Kate and Rich’s wedding was the second Ahwahnee wedding I had the pleasure of photographing and I can’t wait to go back again! A little fun fact, Kate and Rich got married the day before John Muir’s birthday! They both have a love for John Muir and Yosemite National Park.
I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did!
