Zion National Park has become a popular spot for a destination wedding and for good reason! Travelers come from all around the world to experience the sandstone cliffs and towering mesas of Zion National Park. I love photographing weddings in Zion and Springdale. Dana and Brian had their wedding ceremony and reception at The Switchback Bar and Grill. Its a wonderful spot for a wedding! It has the towering cliffs of the watchman near by and an amazing grove of cottonwood trees that are perfect for a wedding ceremony. Dana and Brian ended up renting out the restaurant, which is such an awesome idea, as the space is absolutely stunning. Before the ceremony began we started with getting ready photos and then a quick first look. From there we made the trek into the park where we spent time just the three of us getting amazing photos. I love to be able to do the couples photos before the ceremony when we don’t have time constraints. Especially in Zion where it can take a lot of time to get through the park. The ceremony was beautiful, with their closest friends and family in attendance. From then on it was a party, and a great one at that. Awesome food and dancing and a marshmallow bar for cooking smores on the camp fire at the reception. This Zion wedding was so beautiful and fun. Im so glad to have been there to photograph this fantastic bride and groom and their beautiful wedding day!
Ali and Cory’s engagement session in Pine Valley was absolute perfection. These two love the outdoors and Pine Valley was the perfect spot for their engagement photos. I had a great time hiking around the mountains and near the lake with these two. Cory loves to fish so the reservoir was especially perfect to represent him for their photos. I love the interaction between these two and the love the have for one another. Its also a huge plus that regardless of how hot it might be in St George, Pine Valle is always a nice respite from the heat. As a wedding photographer in Southern Utah I get to photograph some stunning places. Pine Valley for Engagement photos is one of my favorite!
