Moab Couples Session | Utah LGBT Elopement Photographer

La Sal Mountains and the area around them has been a place I have been dying to photograph at for years now and I was so excited to finally be able to do it in this visit this beautiful area! Sitting just south to Moab, along the La Sal Mountain range Steel Bender trail is a popular destination for locals in Utah. With is dominating feature, Faux Falls sit right below the beautiful red rocks. I was so excited when I was able to meet up with Ella and Rachel to document their Moab couples session at sunset on a sunny April evening.

It was the perfect evening with the sun glowing and the Spring light making us warm and cozy. Ella and Rachel met me at the trailhead, we began to explore and get to know each other!

Something that is really important for me is to get a chance to get to know my couples before we begin taking photos. This not only helps everyone get to know each other, and it allows for everyone to also get comfortable with one another. My goal is to document genuine moments between my couples and that can only be done once we have created a sense of trust!

Once we found some really good spots, we began to take photos. It truly was so much fun being able to document them at this early stage of their relationship. The air was electric. We laughed so much and truly enjoyed this amazing sunset together.
