The first time I saw the sand dunes was this time last year. And I couldn’t get the idea of a stunning photo shoot out of my head. As a wedding photographer, every time I see a great landscape I just want to plop a beautifully in love couple in the middle and start clicking away! The creamy sand, the subtle shadows and the beautifully simple desert were the stuff of dreams. So when we decided to return to this little slice of Utah heaven this year I just knew I had to set up the shoot! And Sierra and Luke were the perfect couple to make my vision come to life!
These two were absolute naturals in front of the camera! And by the end of the session I was pretty much in love with them! I mean, how can you not love the couple that takes their car down some little dirt path (thanks Google Maps) just to meet you at a dreamy location?! It is incredibly surreal to see your yearlong vision come to life, and I honestly couldn’t think of one thing to change. Sierra’s Free People dress danced and swirled in the wind and the desert light made the sand glisten, their love just radiates through every image and then, right at the end, the sun peeked through the clouds and everything just glowed!
The desert is easily becoming one of my favorite places to shoot! It really let these two shine in every. single. image!
Sierra and Luke, thank you, thank you, for listening to my vision and adding your own personal flair to it! I wouldn’t trade you two for anyone and I can’t wait for next time!
