SESSION BY CHRISTIAN LEMONS
"Hey Christian! Tell us a little bit about this couple and your session."
Rebecca and Cory found me via Instagram and instantly felt a strong connection to my work! Within a week they had hired me to photograph their engagement session in North Carolina, where we live, and to travel with them to California to photograph their intimate wedding in Yosemite National Park!
They chose to have an intimate destination wedding in Yosemite in order to keep the focus of their union on their love and sense of adventure! They were joined by 19 of their closest friends and family members and it couldn't have been more perfect! They held their ceremony at Glacier Point, overlooking Yosemite Valley, on a Thursday afternoon!
We spent the rest of the day adventuring around Taft Point and the valley! Their sense of carefree love and joyful spirits made this day feel like a dream, being in Yosemite was complete icing on the cake!
We woke the following morning before the sun and made our way back to Glacier Point for a sunrise session! It was ultimately peaceful and massively beautiful! We then drove back down to the valley to play and shoot in the Merced River before saying our goodbyes
On the way down, we caught a SECOND SUNRISE over the ridge while at Tunnel View Overlook! We were in complete awe! Shooting this elopement was a dream for my business and it couldn't have been more perfect!"
