Yosemite Taft Point Couples Session

I will ALWAYS say yes to a photo session in Yosemite National Park. Mention Taft Point and I am probably already in my car driving to the location. Yosemite will always have my heart. When I found out that Jeff and Katie got married at Tenaya Lodge over 14 years ago I knew we had […]

Ethan and Mackenzie are (finally) married! They were my first couple that had to postpone their wedding because of COVID. Their wedding date changed, then their venue changed after the location they were supposed to wed got closed down. What didn’t change was their love for each other and their desire to be married. They […]

Kristina and Randy are literally my DREAM clients. When I met them last Summer I knew I had to shoot their wedding. They are sweet as can be, quirky, adorable, they LOVE Disney (Kristina is basically a real-life Disney Princess), a bit nerdy (like me), and they were getting married in Yosemite. I could not […]

One thing I never considered when I started my photography business was the friendships I would make, especially those friendships with OTHER photographers. I mean, they are supposed to be my competition right? How can I be friends with someone who might steal my clients? Here’s the thing, there are enough clients to go around, […]

Shaver Lake Engagement Photographer

Shaver Lake has quickly become one of my favorite locations to photograph engagement sessions. This location off Dinkey Creek Rd was perfect. As I drove up to the spot the fog started rolling in, of course being a photographer I freaked out a little because fog can be so hard to photograph but Lilly was […]

Cristina and Roger booked me just 6 weeks before their wedding! A friend referred me to them after their original Photographer had an accident and was injured for their wedding day. I’m so glad I was available and able to capture their day for them. Cristina got ready at her Parent’s house while Roger was […]

Diego and Jessi got married at the beautiful Chapel on the Hill just outside of Paso Robles in Shandon. This gorgeous Chapel sits up top a hill (hence the name) looking over picture-perfect vineyards and rolling golden hills. There is a small winding road that leads up to the back of the church and a walkway that leads you through the vineyards and up the hill towards the Chapel. I think you would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful location for a Chapel in California.

This cute little backyard barn is the perfect setting for intimate weddings and gatherings. Liz, the owner of Scott Family Ranch completely rebuilt this barn with her husband and I think they did an amazing job. It has such a rustic modern feel to it. Jared and Kyli were the models for the shoot. These […]

You guys know that all things Yosemite have my heart. So when Steven and Radhika approached me at the Bridal Collective Bridal Show about their May 2019 Tenaya Lodge Yosemite Wedding I knew I HAD to be the one to photograph their big day. Luckily for me Steven had scoped out all the vendors before coming to the Bridal Show and decided that Dana Rae Photography was who he wanted to capture his big day. And yes, it was his decision, once Radhika knew he wanted an important part in choosing their photographer she let him take over, which I thought was awesome, it’s not often the Groom is the main point of contact.
