American TJ and Australian Jess met through Instagram. They are both avid hikers and Jess found TJ’s photos of mountains so they started to follow each other, her exact words were “#hiking brought us together!”
After chatting online, TJ came to Australia to spend a month hiking around Tasmania with Jess, and so their great romance began!
Photographer Dee from Deezigner Images says, “they came across my work and asked me to photograph their Hawaii wedding (which will take place next June), they also wanted an engagement shoot in Yosemite. This year, a client wanted some work done in Vegas so I contacted TJ and Jess to see if they were still keen on Yosemite for an engagement shoot and they absolutely were.”
Dee goes on to explain that they did this stunning shoot over two days and since Jess and TJ spend a lot of time in the area they know it well so they shot in various Yosemite locations, including Taft Point and the Yosemite Valley.
