Some weddings hold an extra special place in your heart & for me, Cole & Abigail's wedding was absolutely one of those weddings. I've known Abigail since before she was born. Her Dad was my youth pastor growing up & I remember when they made the announcement that they were pregnant with Abigail! So when my dear friend & amazing photographer Taylor asked me to 2nd shoot a wedding with her in Mariposa, I of course said yes ... I mean who wouldn't want to road trip to the mountains with your awesome friend & shoot a gorgeous wedding??!! Then when she told me the names of the bride & groom I couldn't believe it!! This wedding was so sweet, meaningful, intimate, emotional & full of life, joy & celebration. Cole & Abigail's first look is one I'll never forget & I can't even count the number of times I had tears in my eyes during their wedding day. I am so grateful to have been a part of this incredible day!
The End of the Road Retreat is an amazing old cabin tucked away in the Mariposa forest. It felt like an absolute fairytale ... the light was perfect, the weather was perfect, the scenery was perfect, the details were perfect. This location truly was a photographers dream to photograph & I hope I'm able to go back someday!
