rachel + seth's adventurous taft point engagement session | yosemite national park | california adventure elopement photographer

We will ever get tired of showing our couples amazing places for the first time. Rachel and Seth both moved to California from the east coast and have wasted no time seeking out everything the Golden State has to offer. They're constantly exploring and adventuring, and knew doing engagement photos in Yosemite National Park was the perfect way to celebrate their engagement in a way true to themselves. They are high school sweethearts and considered eloping out here, but decided they wanted to include more family and friends, so their engagements in Yosemite were a way to share the beauty of the park with everyone back home. We had so much fun hiking out to Taft Point with them, watching them take in some of Yosemite's best views for the first time together. They were surprisingly fearless (and even made me a little nervous!) with the cliff edges and while they loved the majestic scenery, they were constantly more enamored with each other. We loved getting to know these two and had such a great time hiking around Yosemite with them!
