Personal · Nature: Cheaper Than Therapy

Just a couple of hours after photographing Chasi & Bernardo's wedding, I found myself on the road with some of the best people I know - heading over to none-other than Yosemite National Park to catch the sunrise. 

Despite having been to Yosemite numerous times (especially in recent years), there's just something so magical about this place that simply cannot be put into words. Every visit grants me with newfound inspiration, and this one was no different. One of our highlights from this unique trip was meeting this kind, elderly lady atop Glacier Point, on the final sunrise of our short, two-day trip. She had just finished climbing Half Dome the day before, and had plans to climb the other behemoths of Yosemite Valley - alongside her cute, little teddy-bear family. Hearing her stories of venturing throughout not only California, but also the other parts of the United States, to take in all of the beautiful views, conquer the craziest hikes, and snap photos of her teddy bears was an absolute treat - most definitely a wonderful ending to our escape from the hustle and bustle of city life!
