Yosemite Destination Wedding Lauren + Robert

Yosemite Destination Wedding


Lauren + Robert

Traveling with Lauren and Robert to Yosemite was a dream! It was so much fun joining them on an adventure through some of the most beautiful locations throughout Yosemite National Park. We did three photo sessions while we were in Yosemite.

Can this be any more perfect? Our first session was in the field at dusk where we encountered a family of deer.

The brave couple finished off the first session, barefoot in some freezing cold water. Here is a steamy photograph of the two of them.

Our second photo session was at night. Lauren and Robert went to dinner at the Majestic Yosemite Lodge and ate a fabulous meal. We meet at 9:30 when there was no more ambient light.

We found a secluded field in Yosemite Valley with no ambient light and I took a few night photos of the two of them snuggling

Our Third session was a sunrise photo session at Glacier Point

Pro tip:

The drive to Yosemite Valley to Glacier Point is one hour. Since sunrise was at 6:00 am we had to leave the valley at 4:45am! Yikes, It can be very cold at the top before the sun comes out. black and white photo of couple in Yosemite

Lauren Posted a Review on my Facebook Page

“We took pre-wedding pictures (1 month before) in Yosemite National Park. We just got the pictures back and we are OBSESSED! Tara is AMAZING! She’s fun and adventurous, and she makes you feel comfortable taking pictures (something my fiancé and I are very awkward at). When we booked Tara one of the first things we told her was that we wanted pre or post-wedding photos in Yosemite, she had never been and was completely up for the adventure immediately, which made us love her even more! Our wedding is now 12 days away and I’m SO looking forward to Tara taking my picture again! I’m so excited that we found Tara, we definitely recommend!”
