I love day-after sessions because getting your portraits taken shouldn’t be rushed. I really value fostering a space where my creativity is nurtured by allowing things to happen organically without the constraints of time. By shooting the day after your wedding or elopement, pressure is alleviated and everyone is so much more chill. There’s more time to play, more time to explore, and more time to create meaningful photos.
I flew with Karen & Vance to shoot their destination elopement in Zion National Park, Utah this past December. The morning after their wedding we woke up (super early too, at like 4:30 am!) in order to reach Zion canyon overlook before it got too bright out.
Check out Karen & Vance’s gorgeous winter elopement at Zion National Park here and below is their day-after session. I hope you’re just as inspired as I am by the landscape as well as Karen & Vance’s free-spirited desire to get married on their own terms <3
