The Top 5 Yosemite Elopement Photographers [Updated for 2023!]

Updated July 19th, 2023.

2023 Onward.. I’ve made the decision to not photograph elopements in Yosemite National Park. (See recommended Photographers below)

I’m focusing my attention on my home market and serving the greater Portland area and elsewhere in the state of Oregon. For Oregon elopement locations, check out this link: https://dylanmhowell.com/oregon-elopement-locations/ or send me a note.

If you’re still interested in Yosemite, see my list below! Yosemite is a very unique place to elope. It is vital that you have a photographer with experience in the park.

  2. Hello Dylan,

    First of, have to say that really love your work! 🙂
    Cam I ask for a little help from you. I’m with doubts between a 28mm or a 35mm lens. Can you remember what lens were you using in this broom bedroom? The photo where we can see the bed. Really like that prespective.


  3. Views & images like these could make any marriage cynic want to start dating, just to have a chance at a day like this.

  4. Your work is absolutely stunning. My fiance and I are getting married in Yosemite next week, can you please let me know the location of these photos? Any help given would be much appreciated.

    1. Glacier Point & Taft Point 🙂

  5. These photos are breathtaking! My fiancé and I are thinking of eloping here. Could you please tell me how bad the crowds were? Did it make it difficult to take photos of the couple?

    1. There are definite crowds at Glacier point, but Taft point is less crowded due to short hike.

  6. Amazing pics, really love the colors and the backgrounds. This makes me want to visit it. Moreover, they seems to be alone in the world… so romantic !
