If you’ve been following my work for a while, you probably remember that I shoot video for a few elopements every year with Pop Up I Do. This time we headed south for some red rock, and epic views for these vows! Terry + Gabby are both pilots, their boss headed to Moab for the Jeep Safari and they decided it would be a beautiful place to hitched.
They were right! The morning before the ceremony, Marisa, Kayla (Kayla Bertagnolli Photography) & I drove up to scout the spot and to be sure of what time the sun would peak over the cliffs. It was absolutely magical and we were all stoked about how pretty everything was going to be! The next day we met up with the bride and groom around 5am. it was still very dark and you could see Gabby doing her makeup in the light from the vizor mirror in their jeep.
She had always wanted to stay at Under Canvas, and thought it would be a perfect time for their special occasion. Apparently though, their tent didn’t have any mirrors , or electricity ! (I mean, it is a tent….even if it is a luxury one) So she had to do all of her primping in the car, even curling her hair. But when she emerged , she looked absolutely stunning!
It was a very windy morning and a bit overcast, which didn’t give off the same golden affect as the previous morning. But still breathtakingly beautiful! Terry isn’t at all afraid of heights and kept freaking everyone out with his desire to be right on the edge. Well everyone except Gabby, I think she’s used to it.
It was such a pleasure getting to capture this quiet and beautiful wedding and to meet these amazing people!
I don’t normally take too many photos when I’m hired for a film, but this was such an awesome location I couldn’t not sneak a few in! This was my very first visit to Moab, and I had such a great time taking in all of it’s magnificence!
Best wishes to this happy couple! To book your wedding, elopement or whatever else you’d like to shoot, you can chat with me here. I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
