Yosemite Valley Fall Engagement

There’s something truly enchanting about the fall season, especially when it’s set amidst the dramatic beauty of Yosemite Valley. Shiva and Jesse had a vision of incorporating the natural splendor of Yosemite into their engagement photoshoot. As their engagement photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing this memorable moment.

Having had the privilege of capturing the enchanting engagement photos of Shiva’s sister, Nina, nearly two years ago, reuniting with their family was an absolute joy to document another milestone. Witnessing their strong bond and love made it thrilling when Shiva and Jesse contacted me to be a part of their love story.

With their recent move to Clovis, Shiva and Jesse found themselves in the perfect proximity to the awe-inspiring Yosemite Valley. Nestled in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite Valley transforms into an autumn wonderland during the fall season. Vibrant shades of red, orange, and gold embrace the foliage, creating a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of colors. In sync with the vibrant fall setting, Shiva and Jesse incorporated elements that celebrated the season into their engagement photoshoot. The changing leaves served as nature’s canvas, creating a breathtaking harmony between the couple and their surroundings. Clad in cozy outfits that radiated warmth, they seamlessly blended into the autumn landscape.

“My fianc√© and I were referred to Ashley by my sister. She couldn’t have been a better fit for us. Her love for photography and capturing clients special moments was prominent right out of the gate. She was thorough in her initial intake questions, she was open to any ideas we had and was able to give wonderful recommendations for locations and ideas during the photoshoot. She makes things quick, easy, and somehow, effortless. We felt comfortable around her almost immediately which says a lot since we are both camera shy! We can’t wait to use Ashley again for our future photography needs! Ww HIGHLY recommend her!!” – Shiva
