Glacier Point and Taft Point Elopement in Yosemite
Last Updated on February 12, 2021 by vowsandpeaks
Yosemite has always had a special place in my heart. I grew up going there every summer as a child and remember fishing with my dad at the bottom of Vernal Falls. My parents even spent their honeymoon at the famous The Ahwahnee Hotel. So naturally, getting called to photograph Nick and Megan’s Glacier Point and Taft Point elopement in Yosemite is something I was super excited about!
Nick and Megan are also no strangers to this park after spending countless hiking and camping trips here over the years. They had a strong affinity for Glacier Point and Taft Point, which are some of the tallest parts of this National Park, both overlooking the valley and El Cap. These points have some of the best views in Yosemite, which made for some epic photo opportunities!
We started our adventure at Glacier Point where Nick and Megan shared a first look as Half Dome towered above them. Couples ask me what my favorite part of elopement days are and I always circle back to first looks. I love capturing the raw emotions of couples seeing each other for the first time. The looks are their faces are always different, yet the excitement is still the same.
Nick and Megan then shared their vows, had a ring exchange and opened a bottle of whiskey that they plan on sharing every year on their anniversary. What a cool yearly tradition! We then hiked around the area and took in the epic views of the granite lined Yosemite Valley and Half Dome from the distance.
My name is Sean, and I can’t wait to help create your Yosemite adventure elopement! I’m a free spirit who has dedicated my life to exploring this wild world and connecting to the people in it.
I know firsthand what an important and personal decision this is—my wife and I eloped to Northern Ireland. You’re trusting me to capture this amazing day, and I make it my responsibility to make sure you have an incredible experience from start to finish.
My passion has led me here, where I can follow my heart and share my love for the outdoors with others on their wedding day. It’s truly an awesome experience, and I’m stoked every time I get to document your day.
When I’m not photographing couples, I love to go exploring with my wife and our corgi. Our dream is to own an Airstream and take Vows and Peaks on the road!
Sound like the perfect match? Reach out so we can get started on your epic elopement!
