Bride and Groom on the ROCKS! - IPPA quarterly

Southern Utah is a most unique landscape! As we settled in at the hotel in Moab, Kathryn and I discussed scouting the area for our Bride and Groom Location that evening. It was about that time that MJ dropped by the room and asked if we had a location selected yet. "Not yet, but we were just going out".  We jumped in the car and headed out west of town. As we drove along the west edge of town we came upon a river that cut through the towering red rocks. We followed the road along the river and just kept looking at each other in awe of the surroundings. Anywhere along the route would be great for a Bride and groom. We just kept going and eventually the road turned to gravel and it just got better and better.

I finally stopped the car and said "This is the place". And it was!
We met with everyone at 4pm and broke up into four smaller groups of 10-12 each. We were so fortunate to have a beautiful bride-to-be and her future Husband.  They were so cooperative and fun. I lead the group and we just had a great time together. Everyone shot and everyone seemed to have fun. Here are a few of my favorites of the afternoon.

The Brides Sister was so helpful with hair and make-up.  She stood by.... watching for anything that needed a quick fix.  Thanks!

It was a joy to see so many photographers that were passionate about capturing the moment!

....and nobody fell off a cliff!
