sorcha + brandon / dead horse point engagements

moab wedding photographer

dead horse point + corona arch engagements

spending time with sorcha and brandon was like spending time with old friends. when she initially contacted me, she explained that they had spent some time out in the desert before and were avid canyoneers. that of course piqued my interest and we started going back and forth about different options. after lots of deliberation we decided to split their session into two so they could have a wide variety of engagement photos: a sunset session at corona arch, and a sunrise session at dead horse point. 

i loved this plan because, although i spend a ton of time at dead horse point state park shooting elopements and small weddings, i don't get to go up there very often for sunrise. i wouldn't exactly say i'm a morning person, but for sunrise sessions with epic canyon views with rad people? coffee mug is full and i'm ready to go bright eyed and bushy tailed. :)

sorcha & brandon spent some time camping around moab, exploring arches national park and other sights, before we got together for our first session. sorcha is an incredible photographer (check out her work here!) so it was fun to chat about photo and the madness that ensues every morning at mesa arch. they spent the night at our place, coming over after a long day of hiking and exploring. we shared tacos and drinks and talked about the outdoor industry and trips we all wanted to go on. we turned in early, stoked for the sunrise and the next adventure.

i won't say much more, because i. think the photos speak loud and clear: the sunrise was gorgeous, and these two are made for each other.

sarah + seth / fisher towers engagements

moab wedding photographer engagement session utah fisher towers

fisher towers engagements

as anyone that knows me will tell you, I love surprises. so when Sarah contacted me and told me that she and Seth were on an extended road trip, that they had just gotten engaged, and that they wanted to have their engagements taken in moab before any of their family or friends even knew, I was beyond excited for them. they were totally up for the adventure of driving about 45 minutes outside of town to one of my favorite hiking trails in the area. they were one of those couples I had wished I could've spent a lot more time with. come back, you two! in the meantime, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! and thank you for walking around barefoot in the desert with me. xo

amber + cody / moab engagements

moab wedding photographer adventure engagements utah

moab engagements

any couple that is willing to trust me enough to follow me down a dirt road long before the sun comes up (and comes dressed to the nines!) is my kind of pair. amber and cody had planned a weekend getaway to moab for their engagement session last fall and because of our schedules we decided to go with a sunrise session at one of the best canyon views around moab. going through these photos again has me longing for those warm early mornings in the desert, and gets me excited about scheduling more sunrise sessions! who's in?

p.s. thank you amber & cody for being so dang wonderful. and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

colby + jazmin / dead horse point engagements

Dead Horse Point Engagement Utah Moab adventure session

dead horse point engagements

i cannot believe i haven't shared this session yet! this year i will be better at blogging all of these incredible couples in a timely manner. but back to colby and jazmin - these two were an absolute dream to photograph. they were so down to earth and definitely shared my same sarcastic sense of humor. we spent some time exploring a gorgeous little spot in dead horse point state park, tucked away from the crowds that head straight to the main overlook. we talked about tattoos (i LOVED theirs), work, and their upcoming wedding in hawaii. this session was everything i love about photography - incredible golden sunset light and a rad couple that was amazing to spend time with outside. happy first week of the year all!

morgan + tim / dead horse point engagements

oooook. i don't even know where to begin. this session with morgan & tim was a total dream. we spent the evening running around dead horse point state park in that perfect late summer light, chatting about their upcoming wedding, work, dogs (of course), and how amazing morgan's dress is! i absolutely love when i get to shoot a couple's engagements and their wedding - it gives them a chance to get used to me running around, so excited to take their photo, and just allows us some casual time to get to know each other a little better. 

i always tell couples before we start shooting that i am not at all expecting them to model for me. in fact, i prefer them not to pose at all, but just to let me direct them, listen to my awful jokes, and i'll do the rest. these two were so, so great. they were up for climbing around on whatever rock i pointed out, and we got to shoot until the sun dipped below the horizon, which is my favorite. :)

cheers to you two! i can't wait to see you again next year for your wedding!!
