An Epic Wedding Deserves an Epic Photo Shoot


An epic wedding deserves an equally epic photo shoot. 

One Sacramento couple's wedding album is going viral after they decided to get higher than anyone else who's eloped (barring some couples in Vegas perhaps) for a photo shoot that will almost certainly earn them a place in wedding photo history. 

Ashley Schmieder and James Sissom were all dressed up in traditional wedding garb for their March 16th ceremony, but the location was anything but traditional. The adventurous pair got married at Everest Base Camp which sits at 17,600 feet above sea level. 

Adventure photographer Charleton Churchill says Schmieder reached out to him to shoot their wedding last year on Instagram. The pair weren't sure at the time where they wanted to exchange nuptials, but, after Churchill floating the idea of the couple getting married at Everest Base Camp, Schmieder and Sissom leapt at the chance. 

The photographer says he's tried to do something similar in the past with another couple, however, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Nepal and killed thousands of people cancelled his first attempt. 

The couple's journey to the altar sitting 17,600 feet above sea level wasn't easy, as documented on Churchill's blog, but their incredible photo album is one for the books!
