Snowy Winter Elopement in the Red Rock Deserts of Utah

I sooo enjoy getting to know all of the couples I work with better & I loved getting to know a bit more about Olivia & Teague. When it came to choosing locations for their elopement, they asked me “How come everyone is jumping to visit California and Colorado (both of which are very lovely) but not Utah?” They chose Utah because of the underrated beauty of the state. At first they were considering Banff, but decided on Utah instead. They’re from the southeast & Utah can be cold enough without dealing with the negative temperatures of Canada! One of their close friends, Anya was their officiant & she was down for this epic hike as well!

The hike we did for their elopement is very hard & very remote. You’ll see in the photos that during parts of the hike, we were literally crawling & sliding up & down the slope of a cliff. They wanted to be pretty much guaranteed to have as much privacy as possible. At this location for their Moab elopement, they were so remote & it was winter so there was no one around for miles. Even though it was cold & it snowed 6-12 inches of snow in areas, they stuck with it & we got some incredible photos from their elopement day! My dog doesn’t always come & I only bring him if couples ask. But Bunji even got to come with us for this elopement!

When it comes to your day, it all comes down to planning your elopement. Creating a good plan allows you to have a great experience the day of your elopement without having to fret much about timelines, what to do, or where to go.
