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 […]

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.

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.
