When choosing their location, Samantha and Jake knew right away that these Moab redrock towers were just the back drop they were looking for. We had so much fun wandering and playing in the desert!
This adventure elopement in the Moab, Utah desert was absolute perfection. Chris and Hannah are both climbers who love to come to Moab. We talked about where to go for their adventure desert elopement and this spot was just what they were hoping for. I love it when couples bring their families and closest friends to celebrate their union as well. So glad I could be part of this beautiful national park wedding!
Marcel and Justin’s elopement at Arches National park was so incredible. They were so relaxed and really left the location choice and schedule of photography up to me, which was great! It meant I was able to choose which locations would look best. Justin woke up early and climbed the Three Gossips in Arches with his groomsmen and still had enough time to dress and make it to the wedding. These two met climbing and working in Yosemite, so it was fitting that they would choose a climbing destination like Moab for their wedding with family and friends.

When Isha and Mark told me that they wanted to capture their love for the city, the outdoors and Isha’s Indian heritage, I was totally on board. We had a fabulous (and freezing) time wandering the desert and swapping outfits in crazy locations. I was amazed by their great attitude, their ease in front of the camera and their vision. Loved every minute working with these two wonderful people.

Trying to play it cool when I’m mentally freaking out about how awesome everything about this session was! Loved wandering around with these two, hearing how they met, fell in love (both collegiate swimmers— wow! He’s from Europe— another wow!) and watching the sun dip lower over the horizon. I have the best job. For real.
One of those Moab weddings where I could NOT stop smiling… like ear-to-ear. These two just kept getting more amazing. First, they met while living in Holland (Marc is Dutch) and fell in love. Their relationship grew despite living on different continents. Then, Karey was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. And they beat it. The odds, the distance, the universe. And then decided to come to Karey’s special place: Moab, Utah, where they made their union official! I loved being a part of this… and her style is sooooo fun. Totally unique and creative.

I love it when couples are like, “Hey! We want to hike three miles in our wedding attire…” I’m never going to say no to that. Stealing away with just the two of you right after your first moments as husband and wife? The photos flow so naturally because the magic is already there in the commitment.
I love photographing a couple before their wedding day. Getting comfortable in front of the camera is such a big part of taking engagement photos. Getting to work with Lexie and Andrew prior to their wedding and then again on the big day made everything seamless. These two unique and beautiful people were amazing to work with.
This Arches National Park elopement was incredible! The lighting was gorgeous, I loved the relaxed mood and the warm summer morning.
It was a complete downpour in the morning. One of those summer rains that comes out of the blue and drenches the desert. It is always a leap of faith to get ready for your outdoor wedding during one of these monsoons, but they usually end about as fast as they start. And it is almost always a guarantee to have some of the best sky photos the desert can offer. This small wedding was just perfection.
Moab Under Canvas is the perfect glamping location for the adventure bride. I loved photographing Erin + Drew’s amazing outdoor wedding here in Moab!
This session was so fun. Breezy, flirty, a little leftover storm clouds and a burst of color from the balsam root.
