If you're anything like us, you're head-over-heels in love with this stargazing shot!  It's beautifully captured and one we couldn't get enough of.  We wanted to include some tips for getting those successful shots to make your night session come to life-- these are straight from the pros at Kindred & Co.

Tips on Stargazing Photos

"Here are some of our top tips for successful star photos and stargazing during your elopement:​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​

  • •When you want to plan for a night of stargazing, it’s best to pick a place that has little to no light pollution -- like the desert or up in the mountains. ​​​​​​​​ Avoid places with a lot of houses, buildings, and skyscrapers.​​​​​​​​

    •Pick a season, month, and location that doesn’t get cloudy as often. There is absolutely nothing worse than wanting to include stargazing during your elopement only to find out it’s going to be cloudy. ​​​​​​​​

    •Plan in advance, but always be ready to be flexible. We can't always predict the weather, and sometimes clouds or other factors may affect even the best-laid plans. ​​​​​​​​

    •If you’re flexible, or willing to extend your elopement, you could plan for the day before or after to get those beautiful nighttime shots. Or, you can embrace the weather as it is, and a partially cloudy night may add to the mood!​​​​​​​​

    •Desert areas, such as Arizona and Utah, are excellent places for stargazing because they don’t get too much rain which helps alleviate the cloud factor.​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​  Some of our favorite star-viewing locations include Moab, Zion, Lake Powell, the Salt Flats, Joshua Tree, and Sedona. In the summer and early fall, the Wasatch mountains near Park City are also an ideal location.

    It’s not easy taking pictures of the stars, but when you have a photographer who knows what they’re doing, it’s so worth it. If you want to include stargazing during your elopement, contact us today, and let’s plan your starry elopement!"
