About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Nice to see you! You can call me Wes, and I am the lead photographer here at Wesley Harden Photography. My team and I specialize in destination adventure elopements, weddings, and all things couples. Whether your event is big or small, we are here every step of the way. In particular, we are wedding professionals who work closely with our clients to bring their vision for their special day to life.

Often, we are our couple's first experience with a professional photographer, and I know what it feels like to be in front of the camera, so I understand the hesitation. It can and will be so much fun, that is my promise to you! I am a candid photographer, and none of my couples are models. You are in very capable hands, and I will help you and your partner every step of the way. You are NOT alone in this!

​As a photographer, it's my job to be your guide, your personal journalist, but most importantly, someone who can make you laugh over just about anything, no matter how small! All you will need to do is show up and be yourselves.

​From Yosemite Valley Weddings to the Bay Area, even the moon and back, I am here for you until the very end. A few destinations I am familiar with are Yosemite National Park, Sedona, Arizona, and Mt. Rainer weddings and elopements.

It is always my hope that the memories we create will last a lifetime, and when you look back at your photos, they will put a smile on your face and remind you of how fantastic your special day was. Please don't hesitate to send me a quick email with any questions you have!

Do not book anyone other than Wesley.

Wesley is such an incredible photographer, with impeccable communication skills. He started off with a zoom meet and greet (which we went way over on time on because he was that invested in getting to know us). After painting our vision of what we wanted to capture in Yosemite, Wesley beyond exceeded our expectations walking us through each photo location, and how the day would be. When the day finally came for our photos, Wesley made certain to be in the park hours ahead of time (to beat the parking issues), and made us extremely comfortable at each location. It was so effortless working with him, and the photos he captured are nothing less than incredible. Wesley stayed with us for over an hour past the scheduled time, and had our photos to us in THREE DAYS, with even more photos than we were expecting. 10/10 would not recommend anyone else to take your photos, as our families and friends cannot stop talking about how stunning they are. Thank you, Wesley!

5/5 Stars, Book Him

I don’t know where to start, other than to say of all of our awesome vendors, Wes is the one I am happiest to have found. From our first phone call before booking, Wes stood out. We were on the phone for an hour where Wes walked us through his process, got to know our wants and needs, and answers our questions. He was so kind, thorough, and intentional. Immediately we knew we wanted to work with him. We met via zoom a few weeks before the wedding and went through a timeline of the day, and Wes made sure we hadn’t missed anything on his forms to make sure he captured all our special moments.

NOW for the day of the wedding. Wes texted us ETAs, arrived early, took the most beautiful detail shots (at a venue he’s never been to before), set up for our first look, and knocked out bridal party photos before the ceremony. He grabbed us for golden hour, and only needed about 15-20 min to get the most natural and beautiful couples photos. A few awesome pics during the reception and he was outta there.

SOMEHOW ONLY TWO WEEKS LATER HE HAD OUR ENTIRE PORTFOLIO READY TO GO?!?!? They are the most gorgeous photos and I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of them. Not only did Wes capture all the details we cared so much about, he was able to highlight the whole mood and vibe of our day, how happy we all were and how much fun we all had together.

Wes is the most professional and enjoyable photographer to work with and he made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I would highly recommend Wes to my friends and family, and anyone looking for a truly personal experience with their wedding photographer

Best. Decision. Ever.

Our experience with Wesley was downright awesome. From the get-go, he wasn't just a photographer; he was like the ninja of capturing moments.

Sorting out the details for his trip to Washington? Wesley nailed it. Found the best deals, made everything easy. And the trail he picked for our shoot? Pure magic.

He's a trooper too – our hike was no walk in the park, but Wesley stayed chill and supportive throughout. No awkward poses, no wondering what to do; he guided us like a pro.

Communication was a breeze, online and in person. Quick responses? Always. And get this – he was totally cool with holding onto our photos until our wedding, four months later, just so we could keep them a surprise.

The photo turnaround? Blink, and they were in our inbox. The pics? Mind-blowing. Opted for a photo album through Wesley, and it's basically a work of art.

If you are here wondering if Wesley is the right photographer, the answer is yes. He is organized, so sweet, and damn good at what he does. Our Washington vow reading was epic, and he played a huge part in making it unforgettable.

Nice to see you! Well, you've made it this far, so let's get to learn a bit more about me!

Making people smile is not only my passion, but it's my job! I love seeing a smile so much I often think I'm a comedian, but when I can capture that emotion, that true sense of freedom, and show it to the person or people whose it belonged to, I feel genuinely fulfilled.


As a photographer, it's my job to be your guide, your personal journalist, but most importantly, someone who can make you laugh over just about anything, no matter how small!

From Yosemite Valley Weddings to the Bay Area, even the moon and back, I am here for you until the very end.


It is always my hope that the memories we create will last a lifetime, and when you look back at your photos, they will put a smile on your face and remind you of how amazing your special day was. Please don't hesitate to send me a quick email with any questions you have!


Best,
Wesley
