The new Hallmark movie Marry Me in Yosemite will premiere as part of the network’s Fall Into Love programming event. The romantic comedy stars Cindy Busby, Lexy McKowen, and Tyler Harlow.
In the movie, Busby plays a photographer who needs help navigating the wilderness while on assignment in Yosemite National Park. Harlow plays an off-the-grid nature guide who agrees to help her out.
“To shoot in a place like Yosemite was awe-inspiring,” Harlow said in a recent interview. “It’s one of the wonders of the world, it really is. You really feel a spiritual sense there, it really has that gravity of power to it. To wake up every day and know that I was filming a movie at Yosemite was awesome.”
Both actors shared a brief video on Instagram showing a few behind-the-scenes moments.
“This is what @sweet_t_6 had to deal with while working with me on #marrymeinyosemite,” Busby wrote in the caption. “We had a BLAST and I know you’re all gonna absolutely love this movie and especially love this hilariously talented human!”
New Hallmark movie
According to a synopsis from Hallmark, Busby stars as Zoe, a photographer known for her “Zoe’s Best” series of books that showcase pictures of famous cities. But when her publisher suggests she make one about Yosemite National Park, Zoe finds herself out of her depth.
When she arrives, she is awed by the park’s beauty but is having trouble navigating her way around. A park guide suggests she work with Jack (played by Harlow) a conservationist and former rock climber who likes to stay off the grid. They work together and begin to develop romantic feelings for each other. Zoe explains that she wants to take the kind of photo that shows she is a true artist. But will her desire for perfection could cost her more than she is willing to give up?
