As wedding photographers, Yosemite National Park is our favorite place to shoot in the whole world (can you blame us?). When Jaime + David told us they wanted their engagement photos at sunset in Yosemite and their wedding in the snow at Lake Tahoe, we were unbelievably excited for them. For the next 80 or so years they will have these epic photos of their engagement season literally on a cliff edge in the most beautiful national park in the country (in our humble opinion).
The reason we love this shoot so much isn’t just because they had this incredible kindness to them, or that their love was sweet and joyful (though it was!). What was amazing was that the road to the lookout points was about to close for the winter, and we literally made it up with a few hours to spare before the gate closed. It was nostalgic in a way, to be the last ones there for an entire season, the last people to watch the sun go down over El Capitan for a few weeks.
We are so excited to be shooting their wedding in snowy December, but for now here’s their gorgeous engagement shoot!
