Horseshoe Bend + Antelope Canyon Elopement

Horseshoe Bend + Antelope Canyon Elopement

We started our adventure in Vegas, driving out to Zion National Park for a first look at sunrise, but kind of left late and ended up in the full desert August sun aka 100 degrees.  Not to worry, we wiped off all our sweat in Lake Powell for a little afternoon dip. Addie clipped up her hair and got in too.  This is the most BA couple every by the way, they are nuclear scientists and I hardly felt worthy to be hanging with them.  

The big event was their personal vows they wrote to each other that they planned to say while the sun set over Horseshoe Bend.  These two had initially wanted to elope, but realized that having a wedding was just too important for all their family + friends, which I think is the case for most people.  So instead, they met up with me a week before their wedding to say personal vows in the desert on the side of a cliff and it was nothing short of incredible.  We all cried. 

The next morning, we timed it just right and went to Antelope Canyon right when the sun was peaking through.  The adventure of the year.

I don't often get to work locally since I live in a small Northern California town, so when these two contacted me to spontaneously do an engagement shoot while they were in town, I was so excited.  We went to one of the best waterfalls in the world, just 1 hour from Redding, and got completely soaked, as usual, while the tourists watched us like we were crazy.  Been there before. Meagan + Gavin were so sweet, and we had such a blast hanging out together.  Their love for each other just pours out of every image.  You can tell just how much they love being with each other.
