Deb & Braden | Desert Elopement | Southern Utah Wedding Photographer

Sometimes when I have an idea for something, I literally cannot get it out of my head. I have had this idea for a desert-themed styled elopement shoot for ages - since I moved to southern Utah - and I was finally able to make this dream freaking happen!

Tessa and I put our heads together a few months ago to plan what ended up being one of my favorite styled shoots to date. We were inspired by the warm desert colors of southern Utah - dusty orange, sage green, and warm gold. Throw in some succulents and a cow skull, and we had the perfect recipe for some classic desert elopement vibes.

The day of the shoot came and the wind was completely out of control! With our schedules and the schedules of all our vendors, we had no choice to move ahead with it. Sure, we had to weigh down the invitations with rocks and fix the bride's hair between every shot, but dude. It was so worth it.

A huge shoutout to all the incredible vendors that helped make this shoot possible. Do me a favor and check them all out below!
