Het wordt wel eens gezegd: liefde kan bergen verzetten. In dit geval verdraaien we hem naar ‘liefde kan bergen beklimmen’, aangezien dit koppel dat bewees en wij van het verzetten van een berg nog nooit bewijs hebben gezien. Ashley Schmeider en James Sisson zagen de rozenblaadjes, bruidsmeisjes en witte duiven liever op andermans bruiloft dan bij henzelf en besloten het tofste idee ever uit te voeren.

Trouwen op de Mount Everest. Bam! Ze zijn een jaar bezig geweest met het plannen en trainen voor hun plan maar makkelijk ging het niet toen zij aankwamen in Nepal. In het bijzijn van hun fotograaf, Charleton Churchill, duurde de klim om het 5.181 meter-hoge Base Camp Everest te bereiken maar liefst drie weken. Daar zeiden zij eindelijk, na diepe sneeuw, vrieskou en hoogteziekte samen te overwinnen hun huwelijksgeloftes.

De plaatjes van de speciale gelegenheid laten een combinatie van rijk blauw, fris wit en robuuste stenen zien en het is prachtig. Een mooiere trouwervaring dan dit kunnen wij ons niet voorstellen. Ah, de symboliek in de klim en het huwelijk! Fantastisch.

Documenting a wedding up to and at Mt. Everest Base Camp right in front of the Khumbu ice-fall where Sherpas lay ladders over deep crevasses for climbers to cross with the Himalayan mountain range surrounding us…can officially be the answer to the most asked question I get from you all: What has been your favorite wedding location? . We appeared on Fox40 news news this morning, CBS a few days ago, check out the interview on my Facebook link. . #mteverestwedding #adventureawaits #adventurethatislife #adventurewedding #stayandwander #exploremore #weddingphotos #weddingphotography #keepitwild #getlost #visualsgang #destinationwedding #adventurous #junebugweddings #bridalfashion #weddingphotographer #finditliveit #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #hikerslife #theoutbound #brides #goplaces #adventurevisuals #choosemountains #charletonchurchillphotography #visualsoflife #weddinginspo #everestbasecamp #mteverest

Here's a behind-the-scenes shot while shooting James and Ashley Schmieder after they saw each other for the first time in wedding attire around 4 degrees Fahrenheit, up near 17,500 feet, near Kala Patar, day before base camp. (Mt. Everest is the darker mountain in the back on the right with the cloud cover). . Tomorrow I'm posting on the blog the actual wedding images. . #mteverestwedding #adventureawaits #adventurethatislife #adventurewedding #stayandwander #exploremore #weddingphotos #weddingphotography #keepitwild #getlost #visualsgang #destinationwedding #adventurous #elopement #thegreatoutdoors #outsidemagazine #finditliveit #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #hikerslife #theoutbound #himalayas #goplaces #adventurevisuals #choosemountains #charletonchurchillphotography #visualsoflife #weddinginspo #everestbasecamp #mteverest

Made it to Dingboche at 14,500 feet, and we can feel the altitude here. Both James and Ashley are well, a little headache and loss of appetite which is natural at this altitude, but they are both tearing up the trail. I'm glad to have them on this adventure of a lifetime. We are here for another day, three more camps and we are at Everest Base camp.

Made it to Tengboche today, in the morning we head to Dingboche at 14,469 ft. for a few days to acclimate before we head to base camp on Thursday. Today we crossed another bridge. We brought California with us because this is the first large snow storm since winter started, and we happen to be here at the right time. For now, we are trying to stay warm and fed, enjoying outselves.

Early morning in Namche Bazar, waking up for breakfast and then hike to Everest View Lodge for an acclimatization hike, hopefully to see Mt. Everest before traveling higher up the mountain. Exact same view as 2015 when the earthquake hit (live video updates via my Facebook page). . #mteverestwedding #adventureawaits #adventurethatislife #adventurewedding #stayandwander #exploremore #weddingphotos #weddingphotography #keepitwild #getlost #visualsgang #destinationwedding #adventurous #elopement #thegreatoutdoors #outsidemagazine #finditliveit #getoutdoors #getoutstayout #hikerslife #theoutbound #himalayas #goplaces #adventurevisuals #choosemountains #charletonchurchillphotography #visualsoflife #weddinginspo #marmot #mteverest
