Gorgeous Horseshoe Bend Engagement in Black

Shay and Justin drove from Phoenix to Page for their engagement session, but decided to make a trip out of it together! Lake Powell means a lot to Justin and he has many epic memories there, he was excited to bring Shay there for the first time and create new memories with her here. They decided to camp together on the lake shore near some of the big rock features. We set up camp with them and then we all set out to Horseshoe Bend where we would be doing their session.

Neither of them had ever been so it was so fun to capture them experiencing this place together for the first time. Their love was evident immediately. The session was full of kisses, hugs, quiet moments, happy tears and so much fun. They enjoyed playing around on the rocks and pushing their comfort zones.

After sunset, we hiked back and head towards camp as they set up a fire and chatted about the day and excitement for their elopement day coming up soon. We left them after some campfire photos to enjoy their evening together making dinner and sleeping under the stars.
