Jonathan chose to surprise Jessica with a Yosemite proposal at the coolest location yet – Vernal Falls! Depending on what side of the bed I wake up on, Yosemite, Disneyland, and the Serengeti switch between being my favorite places in the world…so needless to say I was super excited to hear Jonathan wanted a Yosemite proposal! There’s no bad reason to go to Yosemite, but toss in a pretty hike like Vernal Falls and a marriage proposal and it was a no brainer! Vernal Falls provided an amazing backdrop for the proposal naturally with it’s waterfall, but we were so lucky to see a rainbow as well!
It was amusing trailing behind the two as they hiked the path, seeing them stop every so often for photos, and me literally walking past them as they did, and then having them overtake me when I stopped to take my own photos of the surroundings. With its grandeur and beauty, a Yosemite proposal is arguably the easiest place for a photographer to hide in plain site and get close!
As we approached the base of Vernal Falls, Jonathan presented Jessica with a bouquet of flowers (which I carried with me and left for him to gather) and dropped to one knee and proposed, surprising her, as well as the dozens of tourists visiting the humbling waterfall.
Oh Yosemite, you never cease to amaze! If you are reading this, you should definitely propose or wed at Yosemite! (and have me come along!).
