There’s no doubt that love drives the world. Even in the toughest of times like COVID, couples didn’t let their emotion of love fall behind anything else. That’s the beauty and purity of the emotion.
Brittany and Thomas also decided to celebrate their love and document their togetherness in the form of photographs. They gave us the opportunity to photograph their engagement and chose one of the most wonderful locations for it. We did this engagement session at the Glacier Point of the Yosemite National Park. This location is as special to us as it is to Brittany and Thomas.
Before we photographed Brittany and Thomas, I got married to Dani in Yosemite early this year. We had been traveling full time for almost 6 years photographing weddings in every US state. Now, we are based in Yosemite for part of the year. Yosemite is a place that makes us cry every time we are there. So we decided to do this new website dedicated to Yosemite.
Full points to Brittany and Thomas for choosing this location.
Brittany and Thomas’s Beautiful Love Story
Brittany and Thomas first met through work and it was love at first sight. They officially started dating on a weekend trip to Yosemite where they climbed half Dome with the cables. It’s been 2 years since then.
In this lovely couple’s own words it was an exhilarating start to a jam packed relationship. Brittany and Thomas say they’ve done so much together in 2 years that it feels like they’ve dated for more than 5. It was on their last relationship anniversary that Thomas decided that they go back to the Half Dome. There they scaled the trek completely alone. At the top of the saddle, Thomas proposed while pretending to take a photo. Brittany recalls it to be so beautiful that her heart couldn’t stop racing. Being completely alone at their favorite place in the world meant so much to them.
Engagement Photography at Yosemite National Park’s Glacier Point
This engagement photo session was an emotional roller-coaster for all of us at the Glacier Point.
Right before Dani began photographing Brittany and Thomas, I asked them to tell us about their story. They held each other tight and as Thomas started to whisper in Brittany’s year they both got emotional and cried. It was SO sweet, so pure and real. Dani and I got emotional too along with them and Dani even gave me a kiss.
Moreover, Yosemite is a place where Brittany and Thomas started dating each other. It is where he proposed to her. It has become more special to them now as they got their engagement photos captured by me there. Also, they have decided to get married in Yosemite.
Brittany and Thomas had told us that their relationship motto is “us over everything”. And honestly these words felt so true as we took their engagement photos. They looked so happy together.
Brittany and Thomas, we love you a lot. Thank you so much for giving Rocker in Love a chance to photograph your engagement. Much happiness to you two ahead.
