A Yosemite Elopement Adventure | Alexis & Reuben

A Yosemite Elopement Adventure | Alexis & Reuben

There are few places in the world better suited for an adventure elopement than Yosemite National Park!

Alexis and I have met years ago when I worked at Apple. When her and Reuben told me they were living in San Jose (only a few hours from Yosemite) and soon to be married, I knew we were going to create some amazing photographs together!

Yosemite Valley is absolutely breathtaking, but it can get insanely busy during the summer months. To avoid the crowds (and the heat), we decided to capture their Yosemite elopement styled session in September.

Alexis & Reuben did a few separate looks during our session, with the first focusing on the floor of Yosemite Valley. We made sure to hit up the iconic Tunnel View and the fields and meadows of the Valley:

After the first look, we decided to do the second from the top of Taft Point, a short hike from the road to Glacier Point. We were treated to one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing:
