I’ve never met a couple who love Yosemite as much as I do. Not until I was introduced to Skye and Isaac–these two are just my people. Shooting their adventure session in Yosemite National Park was a dream come true for all of us!
Yosemite is hands down Skye and Isaac’s favorite place to visit. This meant that coming out of the tunnel to see the view at Tunnel View was such a magical experience. Sharing this commonality made catching that first glimpse of Yosemite all the more meaningful.
Taking photos at Tunnel View was our first stop after capturing their time together that morning at their cabin. I followed them making breakfast together and spending time with both of their moms who had come along to do venue shopping the next day.
The moms were so excited for Skye and Isaac’s shoot that they get them all hyped up and ready to go! I was able to get photos of Skye and Isaac with their mothers and it was just the cutest thing! Having their moms there made it such a special time!
Following breakfast and after closing out our time at Tunnel View, we drove down into Yosemite Valley. As if they weren’t having fun already, this is where the joy really picked up! This couple spent the entire time just playing in the snow! It was such a relaxed day where we took our time and just hung out. All I did was snap photos of them enjoying themselves in their favorite place. This adventure session in Yosemite was such a perfect example of what these sessions should be!
Lastly, we went to Valley View where we could see the Merced River and the rest of Yosemite Valley. It was a cloudy evening but still so beautiful and special photographing these two. We even spontaneously took photos in front of the car headlights as the last event of the day. We got some killer shots!
The ride back to the cabin was spent laughing the entire time! It was so much fun hanging out in such a relaxed way where they were able to just be themselves. Adventure sessions make this so easy to do because we set aside the time and space to just BE. It allows for a couple to hang out and enjoy genuine moments together in their most beloved place! I had such a blast coming together over our shared love for Yosemite because nothing compares to shooting there!
Thinking of testing out those Yosemite waters with an adventure session? Count me in!
