ADVENTUROUS YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK VOWS RENEWAL | SUNSET WEDDING CEREMONY AT TAFT POINT | CALIFORNIA ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER | MARIE + EVAN| MARIE+EVAN’S GALLERY
“The love that Evan and myself share, perfectly embodies the beautiful balance that’s found in nature. I’m the wind – a free spirit in every sense of the word, while he’s a strong oak tree- deeply rooted and grounded. The wind encourages the oak tree to dance, with leaves flickering in the wind. The oak tree blocks the strong gusts of the wind- reminding the wind to slow down.
Both incredibly independent souls, we’ve found love is something to be nourished and we have found that nourishment when we’re outside or traveling the world with the other by their side, fully present in the moment. An adventurous wedding was something that was of interest for us both as our relationship has deepened with every new adventure we have experienced together.
WHY WE CHOSE JUSTYNA AS OUR ADVENTURE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
We both were drawn to Justyna as the photos she captures showcases her love of intimacy and the natural beauty found in the world around us. We’re so excited to have her a part of such a special day- capturing another day where adventure brought us closer together.” Marie+Evan
“If I could sum up our experience in Yosemite with one word, I would use the word: incredible. We truly enjoyed getting to experience the place we love so much together, while having Justyna capture it. We enjoyed getting to run along the epic Glacier Point Rd with half dome in the background and ending our night at Taft Point a gorgeous destination to experience the warm light of sunset. Justyna was gentle, enthusiastic, and encouraging in every way.
Evan and Marie met while working at Hyatt together back in 2012. Marie being in a long-term relationship at the time had a forbidden crush that she kept contained until the long-term relationship had ended (not due to the major crush on Evan). Our relationship started as a friendship and soon bloomed into a beautiful loving relationship. We’re truly the epitome of a Ying/Yang balance, but somehow our vows were scarily alike. We share a love that grows in each season we experience in life, always learning to appreciate the other’s differences, all while simultaneously encouraging and cheering the other to blossom into the person we’re capable and were born to become. We couldn’t ask for a more fulfilling relationship, deeply rooted from a place of unfaltering love and shared joy from every adventure experienced together.”
