A Destination Outdoor Engagement Photoshoot At Red Rock, Southern Utah
I am always down for a destination engagement session! And these two were down for the ride, too! We were greeted that morning with some rain and lightning but it gave the rocks such a rich red from being wet. It truly was a sight to see and gave off a beautiful and cozy overcast sky. Formal engagement sessions are a fun option for couples that wanna do a formal look just like these two did. You can go all out, have a ton of fun with it and make it feel extra special! Your outdoor engagement photos with a formal touch will truly be something. My recommendation is that you should always have one casual “everyday” outfit to change into for some variety!
A Lot Went Right & A Lot Went Wrong During This Destination Engagement Session
Boy was this a trip to remember. I travelled out to meet Rikki + Jackson in Southern Utah for their engagement session! We were planning on a sunset shoot the day I got into town but as the airline gods decided that every airplane will be delayed, we missed sunset and decided to shoot for sunrise. Rikki + Jackson were SO SO accommodating and just the kindest humans. Not one issue was gonna stop them from having the best time with me. Sunrise came – I picked up donuts + energy drinks and as soon as I was on the road to meet at the location, GIANT LIGHTENING cracked through the dark morning and then it started dumping. I called the couple to see how they were feeling and they were still down.
We started shooting and the rain came back full force about 10 minutes into our shoot. We hid in their car and enjoyed the snacks while we waited for the rain to pass. Hair was messed up and clothes were a little damp but Rikki + Jackson embraced. We finished our shoot and its one for the books. The photos turned out beautifully and now we all have memories we can look back now and laugh about.
