Yosemite Engagement Photography

It’s hard to imagine a more majestic place for a wedding than Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is surely one of the most incredible wedding venues in the world. Megan and Ken decided an engagement session in Yosemite’s high country would be a great prequel to their Fall wedding celebration in the valley.

Record-breaking snowfall delayed the normal Tioga Pass opening. When we reached Tuolumne Meadows we understood the delay. With so much snowfall, the roads were not clear until very recently. Most impressive was the effect of all the melting snow in the warm June sun. Rivers were raging. Ponds had become lakes. And the meadows were half-submerged in an amorphous water feature that had no beginning or end. The Yosemite engagement photography session was an adventure in itself.

For the most part, we were able to locate the high and dry areas. Fortunately, Megan and Ken aren’t afraid to roll up a pant leg or two. After a little frigid wading that proved deeper than we had planned, I could tell these guys were up for just about anything.

Spending an afternoon romping through Tuolumne Meadows with these two was a blast. I’m looking forward to their wedding in Yosemite this September. How often do you get to photograph a couple in a place like this?
