Philip & April's Wedding
How cute is this? April has dog tags attached to her bouquet. Included is hers, her husband Phil's, and both of their father's.
We are very impressed with the bouquets that April and her maid of honor made for themselves!
This is Phil and April's wedding rings, on top of the journal that April put her note for Phil to read before their ceremony. Phil's note to April was on a scroll, that his best man Mike delivered to her room.

April and her father. One of our favorite father/daughter photos, ever!!
Phil and April, through the leaves and branches.
Can you spot the waterfall, in the background? Phil & April had so many personal details to make their day uniquely theirs...including the Hawaiian wedding leis, made by one of their guests, that they are wearing in this photo. Phil and April are both in the Navy and they met while serving in Hawaii. So if you were wondering how Yosemite in the winter and Hawaiian leis go together, after learning a bit about the newlyweds, it makes perfect sense.
The snow covered trees are just gorgeous!!!
We have always wanted to photograph a wedding in Yosemite National Park and we finally got to. This wedding had everything; snow covered landscape, great natural light, and a truly wonderful couple! We really couldn't have asked for anything more....that is until the newlyweds were approached by a deer, during portraits!!! It was such an incredible experience!
We are always willing to take photo suggestions for the couple. This was a request from Phil & April.
It's easy to see how in love Phil & April are.

The Mural Room at The Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite was the perfect setting for Phil & April's intimate wedding reception.
You gotta love the cake cutting, when it's done with a sword!! This is Phil & April's cake, bouquet, glasses, and sword.
We LOVE Phil & April's wedding bands that are inlaid with wood!
