Just you, the love of your freaking life, and Yosemite as your witness. 
Hi there friends! I'm Aimée Flynn, your Western United States Yosemite adventure wedding and elopement photographer.  I often get asked my favorite place in the US and though that's nearly an impossible question... I have to say Yosemite. I honestly believe it's the most beautiful place in the country- making it super ideal for an elopement. So when you decide to elope in Yosemite? I gotchu. I'm here to make sure that you're elopement is rad as hell. Your wedding day should be all stoke (no stress). So I’m your location expert, information gatherer, and human golden retriever here to keep the stoke high. At all times. 

Meet Your Yosemite Elopement Photographer


They call Yosemite the center of the universe...it's easy to see why 

Granite cliffs as tall as skyscrapers, cool mist from roaring waterfalls on your cheeks, towering thousand year old trees

This Can Be *Your* Epic and Authentic Elopement Day:

Yosemite National Park. The center of the universe. 

Yosemite National Park is one of the most famous parks in the US... and for a reason. Yosemite Valley is tucked in the heart of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Home to wonders like Half-Dome, El Capitan, and Bridalveil falls, there is no shortage of absolutely stunning views. 

There's nothing like watching the sunset at Taft Point or see Half-Dome go pink from the valley. It's truly a place of magic you have to see to believe. 


Things Your Yosemite Elopement Photographer Wants You to Know

Yosemite Ceremony Locations

When to Elope in Yosemite

  • Glacier Point: Perfect at Sunrise with the sun rising behind Half-Dome.

  • Cathedral Beach: An easily accessed spots with granite walls towering beside you and the Merced River bubbling nearby.

  • Sequoia Groves: Want to get married among 2000 year old trees? One of my favorite spots in the park.

  • PRO TIP: If it's just the two of you, you are not limited to the park pre-approved ceremony locations

Always on a weekday! I *highly* suggest avoiding weekends and holiday times at all costs. Privacy is hard to come by in Yosemite, and avoiding weekends is a great way to improve your experience. 

I recommend spring and late fall. The summer is usually very crowded (and hot) and late summer and early fall are impacted by fire season. Late fall still has lovely colors, but less chance of smoke impact. 

  • Glacier Point Rd and Tioga Pass are closed in the late fall, winter, and early spring!
  • The stars in Yosemite are incredible. Carving out time for some star photos is a magical way to end your elopement day.
  • There's more to Yosemite than the valley. While the spots in (and above) the valley get tons of attention, there is lots of beauty to be found in other areas of the park.
