When Rachel first contacted me about her and Nate’s Calaveras Big Trees State Park wedding, I was sold. She wrote me about how Sequoia trees, with how big they are, can’t stand on their own. The roots of Sequoia trees intertwine with each other to help them withstand winds and storms. I was definitely sold. I wanted to photograph their wedding. Rachel & Nate are from Ohio and had never been to Calaveras Big Trees State Park near Murphy’s. With the help of the internet and helpful vendors and residents in Murphy’s, they made it happen. I resonated with Rachel & Nate when I met them on their wedding day. They had such relaxed personalities enjoying their wedding extravaganza with their friends and families, I felt like I knew them just about forever. I had such an incredible time experiencing their Calaveras Big Trees wedding. It was my first time at the State Park as well. I am so thankful.
