Viridiana and Ben’s Sequoia elopement at Beetle Rock was stunning! As a Sequoia elopement photographer, I love Beetle Rock for ceremonies! It truly is one of the best places to elope in Sequoia National Park! It has beautiful views and it’s great for sunset portraits as well! Ben and Viridiana were originally planning a wedding but it soon became overwhelming for them. They then decided to elope and get married at an epic location with just their close family. Viridiana and Ben knew it was the best way to go for them. They brought their parents and Viridiana’s three daughters. The couple is shy in front of the camera and wanted to have the photos focused more on the background as much as possible and that is my specialty! I definitely think we achieved this in their Sequoia wedding gallery!
Sequoia National Park – The Perfect Location For an Intimate Elopement
A secluded spot like Sequoia is the perfect place to elope because the views are spectacular and it’s so romantic to be surrounded by nature. Taking photos of the huge Sequoia trees along with my clients never gets old for me. The best way to photograph Sequoia trees is with a 15-35mm lens to get a distorted look and to capture the whole tree! We started at Beetle Rock for the ceremony at 2pm, and then roamed around and explored Crescent Meadow, The Parker Group, and then back to Beetle Rock for sunset so Viridiana and Ben could take it all in. The views were just incredible! I loved getting to know these two and I’m so happy that I could’ve been part of their Sequoia elopement experience!
Sweet Words From Viridiana & Ben:
“Our time with Alyssa was such a great experience. My bride and I had no idea what we wanted or what we liked. We gave her a couple of ideas, but she took charge and with her expertise and professionalism, knew how to navigate us into creating the most beautiful wedding photos at Sequoia. She knew exactly what would look beautiful and what would be a waste of time. She would ask throughout our session if there was anything we wanted or needed.
Alyssa knew exactly where to go and what time of day would create the best memories. I am not photogenic, my wife gets annoyed with me when we take pictures, but Alyssa put both of us at ease and brought the model out. I can’t say enough about Alyssa’s art and professionalism. Our brief time together, my wife and I both know we picked the right photographer to work with. We were blessed to be able to work with such a talented and genuine person.”
