Story

When Aneet and Justin reached out to me about photographing their elopement in Yosemite I was understandably beyond excited as someone who had never been there before. They were from Wisconsin and it was their first time exploring a place so mountainous and majestic, so they knew that all they really wanted was that one “epic” shot that they’d cherish forever. I’d seen that shot before, the one that hinted just how enormous and high up that cliff at Taft Point really was with two tiny humans perched atop, and was so excited to take one for myself. We scoped out their ceremony the day before but none of us were prepared for how truly breathtaking the view would be at sunset. The colors that filled the sky and shadowed the mountains right as the sun went down is so much more than a single photo could capture. And don’t worry, I promise there’s much more space between their feet and the edge than it looks!

Hi friends! My name is Autumn. I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in beautiful Utah. I soak up as much inspiration as I can from the beautiful nature I’m so lucky to live near.
