Kelly + Florian // Elopement in the Redwoods

_F5A8064.jpg

Kelly and Florian contacted me all the way from Belgium back in March about photographing their elopement in Redwood National Park. They were planning on spending two weeks in California and wanted to start their trip off in Northern California by tying the knot. I immediately felt like we were long friends and was so excited to capture their special day.

We started by exploring around Patrick’s Point, then headed over to Redwood National Park to stand under the Redwood Giants while they exchanged vows. We finished the day frolicking amongst the ferns and it was pretty darn magical. <3

The Magic that is Yellowstone

The Magic that is Yellowstone

In the middle of a crazy hot July, my dad and I managed to pull off in a road trip to Wyoming. My dad already had the trip planned for himself, so in typical Vanessa Fashion, I invited myself! We visited extended family and spent a few nights camping in Yellowstone. It'd been about five years since I had last visited and this time around I wanted to spend more time exploring. We traveled from Upper Falls to the Grand Tetons and pretty much everything in between. And I even made a few furry friends while I was there, too! 

Three days was just the right amount of time. We strategized, somewhat, to make sure that we wouldn't miss out on anything. I had seen the big, touristy attractions the last time I was there, so this time I wanted to explore the lesser travelled areas. If I could go again, I'd love to go in the fall. No real explanation other than I think it would be pure magic and there would be waaay less people. A win win.

If you made it to the very end, you're my hero. Which one struck a chord with you? Which one made you stop and stare? Which one should I print and put in my new apartment? I need your vote since I only have room for ONE PRINT and it needs to be the right one. 

Also, in case you missed it: Taken nearly 80 years apart, both my grandma and Yellowstone will forever hold a most special place in my heart. I love you and miss you everyday, Grandma.
