Stephan & Adriana

Based In: Yosemite National Park, CA

Hi! We are Stephan & Adriana, a husband and wife adventure wedding photography team based just 15 minutes from the gates of Yosemite National Park, working in Yosemite and Northern/Central California.

We specialize in elopements, intimate weddings, and the outdoors.

Stephan and I met while traveling the world as professional figure skaters for Disney On Ice. Together, we’ve been to 40 different countries. Once we retired we decided to give “normal” life a try, but that didn’t work very well for us. We were itching to travel, to explore, and once again, work with something we were passionate about. Being elopement photographers has allowed us to stay adventurous, meet people from all over the world, and serve them.

We are in love with adventure and the outdoors. We are in love with the unknown, with discovering new places, and having new experiences. If you’re here, I’m guessing you feel the same way. When you choose to elope, you’re choosing to spend your wedding day in a way that reflects you. In a way that fills your day with experiences, memories, and stories that you two will be talking about for years to come.

Stephan is an incredibly calm person and obsessed with photography (seems silly that I have to say this, but seriously, the man is obsessed). Throughout your day, you’ll be seeing his crazy eyes scanning every single place to find the best lighting and the best photo spots. His brain never stops. As for me, you’ll probably find me climbing over some rock or running away to try to find a different point of view than his! Sharing our love for traveling and adventure allows us to connect with our couples and, by the end of the day, we’ll feel like we’ve been friends for ages.

We are down-to-earth and passionate about what we do. Our biggest goal is to make sure you have a seamless experience, from the planning process to your gallery delivery day. We help our couples with permits, timelines, places to stay, and more. All we want is for you to enjoy your day and be present, and know that you’ll leave with beautiful pictures to cherish for the rest of your lives.

Stephan and Adriana are amazing photographers that love what they do, and their passion comes through in their work. We took our engagement photos at Yosemite and they knew all of the perfect places to get the shots we were looking for. From reaching out to book all the way until receiving our photo gallery, the experience was very professional and seamless. We would highly recommend their services!!!

We cannot even think of enough amazing things to say about Stephan & Adriana. Being from Michigan, the entire 8 hour elopement day was planned via email and a few Zoom calls. We were able to do sunrise and sunset photos! Stephan & Adriana made sure that the entire planning process was never stressful! They were always so quick to respond! When our day in Yosemite was threatened by the Creek Fire, Stephan & Adriana called us up and had plans B, C & D planned for us in other beautiful parts of CA. They cared just as much as we did about this day happening. Luckily, Yosemite opened back up just two days before our planned photo day. Stephan & Adriana couldn't be more of a perfect team. These are two of the most down to earth and chill people, and such a good time! It was incredible to see how passionate they were in their craft. This day was a dream thanks to Stephan & Adriana. They were very quick to provide us some sneak peeks of our photos just two days after the initial photo day. Looking at the sneak peeks, we cried because of how beautiful these photos were. Stephan & Adriana are so incredibly talented, we cannot thank them enough for the amazing day, as well as the photos of a lifetime! We also received the rest of the photos in a very short amount of time. The process of viewing the entire photo library via email link was so easy as well!

Me and Joseph LOVED our experience with Stephan and Adriana!! From planning, scheduling and the going through the photoshoot.. we honestly can’t imagine doing our pictures with anyone else! We had a 4 hour sunset engagement session and they were very attentive and understood what “vision” we had for our photoshoot. I had a lot of questions about suggestions and recommendations prior to the photoshoot and they were always quick with their responses. I didn’t know exactly which locations to choose but with their experience, they definitely chose the best locations for us. They’re very easy going and also HILARIOUS.. they had us laughing the entire time, even during our serious shots hahah We received our whole album much earlier than expected and the pictures are so much more than we could ever ask for. Each picture looked so magical and we just can’t believe we had the opportunity to shoot with them at Yosemite. It also was our first time at Yosemite and we loved each and every minute there! We flew to California all the way from Houston, TX just to do our engagement session and without a doubt, we know we chose the right photographer!! It was definitely worth the trip and we would do it over and over again! We’re so grateful that we have these pictures and memories to hold onto for a lifetime :)

Stephan and Adriana were a joy to work with! For our engagement session at Yosemite, I knew they were the photographers I wanted to work with. Our session was from sunrise to sunset, and we had an amazing day. It felt so natural working with them and we all became quick friends! Their photography is beautiful, and they have a great eye when picking locations to shoot. They also come prepared. They know when to shoot for sunrise and sunset and bring extra supplies - first aid, food, bug spray, headlights - if needed. We were so thrilled with the photos, editing, and quick turnaround time! I would highly recommend working with them, they make your special moment even more memorable!

I simply do not have enough words to say how much I love our photos from our engagement session with Adriana and Stephen. When we came across Stephen and Adriana’s work we instantly fell in love and knew we had to have our engagement session with them. Up until our photo session the communication was excellent. They gave us all the information we needed and more- which was especially important because we are from out of state. Being in Yosemite with them was an epic, breathtaking experience. Stephen and Adriana knew all the best spots and were masters at posing us and capturing us in the perfect light. Me and my fiancé are awful at taking pictures and they handled us perfectly and made us feel comfortable. Not to mention they are such a chill and down to earth couple. I would highly recommend Stephen and Adriana for their professionalism, communication, and most of all their pure talent!

Booking Stephan and Adriana for our 5 year wedding anniversary shoot was the best decision ever! Our photos turned out amazing and we were very impressed with their professionalism and how communicative they were during the whole booking process. They answered all my questions and even help me choose which dress would stand out best for our photos! (And they were so right!!). My husband and I are typically camera shy around strangers, but the whole session felt just like a fun, laid back hike with two cool people who love traveling as much as we do. They are extremely talented with a great understanding of light and landscape photography to produce the most beautiful images for their clients. It was my first time in Yosemite and I'm so grateful that they were there to help us capture those moments. Thank you Stephan and Adriana!

Planning an elopement in the midst of a pandemic was a tough task. We knew when we looked at the pictures taken by Stephan & Adriana that they were great photographers. To our surprise, Stephan is a phenomenal photographer and Adriana made our planning, pivoting, rescheduling, and the whole process seamless and fun. Even when Adriana was far away on her own photoshoot in Brazil, she never stopped communicating. When it snowed on the day we planned in Yosemite, Stephan was very flexible and offered us another day. Scott & I felt as though we were being photographed by our friends that we knew for the longest time. Very professional, instructional, but personable and relatable are all the great qualities successful photographers would possess and they've got them all. Their love for photography, people, and what they do shows through their work, and we couldn't have been happier having worked with them.
