Please call and let me know how much time you need and I will suggest the compensation needed. I can also provide helpful tips about redwood forest conditions and local towns. Redwood weddings are practical for areas already used like an established trail or overlook. For the 4 parks Jedediah Smith Redwoods, Del Norte Redwoods, Prairie Creek Redwoods, Redwood National Park, contact the Crescent City parks office, and permit coordinator ..... but south of Eureka for Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Avenue of the Giants, contact California Department of Parks and Recreation
The parks have certain guidelines for redwood weddings. But I know several good locations if you need a suggestion. Time of day is a huge factor related to photographs. Very early morning and the last hours of daylight are often the best. Post-ceremony photos can also be done in several places as lighting changes in the forest, and to provide more variety. This forest is one of the most challenging areas for many photographers.
Some other photographers in close proximity to redwood "venues" outside the old growth parks probably have a good feel for those locations with smaller redwoods and facilities designed for events. But if it means something special for the experience of a tree and redwood expert to photograph your wedding, and fits your budget to cover my short travel, please consider asking.
