From the Photographer

Right before I left this little elopement, Taylor and Kevin’s few guests were sharing memories they had with them and just sharing their love for the beautiful couple. I saw an opportunity to share something right before making my exit. This is pretty much what I said. ~ I had the opportunity to shoot Taylor and Kevin’s engagement shoot in Yosemite. They met my whole family and we literally travelled around the entire park. It was so much and after that day and the many times chatting with them over the phone/text, I knew that no matter what, their wedding was going to be so so special. And even though it wasn’t exactly what they planned it out to be, it was so so special. Just like I knew it would be. And I will never forget it.


These two are proof that there is no perfect scenario to get married. Sometimes things aren’t convenient, there are always hiccups along the way (big and small), but at the end of the day, what matters is the commitment that you make to each other. And these two have been committed since high school, which is something I can completely relate to. They still got to have their elopement at the Santa Lucia Preserve, which was their dream. It was still effortlessly gorgeous. And these two still got married even though Covid tried to stop them. And I was blessed to be there.
