Olivia + Simon in Yosemite National Park, California

Flying in and out within a day might sound like a crazy dash, but let me tell you, it was absolutely worth every moment.

What a whirlwind of adventure capturing Olivia and Simon’s engagement session amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Yosemite National Park in California! Flying in and out within a day might sound like a crazy dash, but let me tell you, it was absolutely worth every moment. The majestic beauty of Yosemite provided the perfect backdrop for this lovely couple’s love story, making the entire experience a dream to photograph.

From the iconic granite cliffs to the lush meadows, every corner of Yosemite served as a picturesque canvas for Olivia and Simon’s engagement photos. The chemistry between them was simply electric, and the natural beauty surrounding us added an extra touch of magic to the shots. I can’t help but feel incredibly lucky to have been a part of this special moment in their lives, and the best part? I get to continue this incredible journey by documenting their wedding day in AUSTRIA this June. What an exciting countdown to the big day – these two are sure to create more unforgettable memories, and I can’t wait to capture them all! Wahoo indeed!

So here’s to love, adventure, and the joy of capturing beautiful moments – whether it’s against the backdrop of Yosemite’s grandeur or the charming landscapes of Austria. Cheers to Olivia and Simon, and the incredible journey that lies ahead!
