Courtney & Evan’s Adventurous Glacier Point Sunrise Engagement Photos

If you’re looking for a spot in Yosemite National Park for your sunrise engagement photos I recommend Glacier Point! It is a very beautiful spot with different backdrops and panoramic views of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and the High Sierra. Additionally, you are able to drive up to Glacier Point so no hiking is required! This was a two hour engagement photo session at Glacier Point and it was perfect because we were really able to take our time and explore all Glacier Point has to offer!

I recommend getting there about 15-30 minutes before sunrise so you can get some shots at blue hour before the sun peeks over Half Dome. During the engagement session they had a picnic that was so cute and made for playful and romantic photos! Courtney and Evan are seriously such a fun and adventurous couple!
