The next time you need an adventure – I vote for a Zion National Park elopement!

Back before the world went into lockdown, Eric and I flew out to Utah to capture this beautiful elopement for Emily and Reed.

Now keep in mind – I have not visited Utah before.

I don’t consider myself an “outdoorsy” type of gal – so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

Little did I know that Zion is nothing BUT nature!


Don’t get me wrong – it’s freaking gorgeous!

But if I ever go back, I will definitely make sure to bring different footwear.

(sneakers just didn’t cut it)

Zion National Park Elopement

I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Utah, but it is freaking GORGEOUS!

So many mountains and colorful red rocks – completely different from the flat, beachy region here in Virginia Beach.

When we went to do this session, Emily and Reed said that it wouldn’t be too bad of a hike, maybe a mile or two.

What they failed to say is that the hike would be straight up, on frickin goat trails!

For real… this city girl was fearing for her life just a bit.


Okay, now that I’m done being dramatic.

It really was so freaking amazing though!

Just to be able to see the view once we got to the top of the mountain… wow!

That view is something I hope that everyone gets to experience one day.

Emily and Reed, thank you for allowing me to capture this part of your love story.

We wish you nothing but joy and love in the future!
