An Engagement Session Out Of This World

This location was so otherworldly, it looked like it could have been shot on Mars! 

Cynthia + Paul are set to elope in Moab, Utah next year. However, they wanted to celebrate their engagement before that and take photos somewhere epic, but maybe a little different than Moab before then.

We sent them a list of locations to choose from and they picked a location that had actually been on their bucket list for some time. They booked their flights and came out to Arizona where, by surprise, one of their favorite bands was also playing!

So surrounding their engagement session they went to a concert and road tripped around the desert-- ticking off bucket list locations.

For the engagement session we met up in town and hopped into a jeep for the long road ahead of epic off-roading! We arrived at the location and started adventuring around the rock formations of swirling colors of pink, orange, white and red.

Each corner we turned looked totally different than the last.

It was a perfect evening with a beautiful sunset. They ended the day like another hiking day they have, sitting watching the sunset sharing one of their favorite bottles of wine. We hiked out after the stars started to twinkle in the sky to start our off road drive back to town, chatting about the rest of the trip they had planned and the big day next year!
