Wild and Free: Josh's & Brianna's Utah Elopement

Utah elopements beckon the romantics, the daydreamers, the lovers of tranquility and nature's beauty. In the still, serene canyon, that is home to the Mirror Lake Highway, Josh and Brianna's love story took root at a secluded spot near a tiny lake high in the Uintah Mountain Range.

There these two found their sanctuary. Each tender moment was theirs alone; their whispers carried on the alpine breeze, their promises to one another as solid and enduring as the towering peaks in the distance.

This elopement is marked not by ostentation but by the intimate grace of the natural world.; it was about two souls forging a union as enduring as the rock underfoot, as free as the birds soaring overhead.

No love story is complete without its storyteller, and in the world of elopements, that storyteller is the photographer. For the wandering souls and those committed to capturing beauty in its rawest form, turning memories into a legacy that outlasts the sunset is more than just a job. It's a calling. These are the moments we live for. Moments drenched in significance, captured with a shutter click, yet echoing in the heart indefinitely.

Nestled in the embrace of the Park City mountains, their day began—not with the clamor of fanfare, but with a slow morning of breakfast, and then getting ready together. Our team arrived in the afternoon and after just a couple of photos of the finishing touches we took off, into the canyon.

As we arrived at the first location on the timeline, part of the team hiked down to the waterfall with Joshua to get him all set up for the official "First Look" while Jenn stayed back to whip out the pop-pop up changing tent that is a staple for adventure elopements. There, In eager anticipation, Brianna stepped into her gown, each moment one step closer to the promise of a shared life.

After their first look, Brianna in her elegant gown, moved with the poise of the pines that stood guard around them. Josh, her steady partner,  carried the calm of the silent peaks, as they wandered around the falls.

As we stated earlier, no story is complete without its storyteller, in the world of elopements, that storyteller is the photographer. It is because of this that couples sometimes overlook the ceremony as an equally important part of an elopement day, however, without a ceremony, without an amazing officiant, a chapter is missing, and your love story is cut short.

Just as nature stands witness to your unspoken vows, so too does your officiant—a light in your love story. They are the gentle but sure voice that guides you through the maze of emotions, offering solace and warmth in the enormity of the wilderness. This is the moment your hearts have whispered about, this is the moment where you commit your life to your soulmate. The entire day is full of celebration and excitement, but the ceremony is when you can slow down, hold your partner's hands, and focus on loving each other.

Time To Celebrate!

We planned to have their celebration at an overlook near Bald Mountain Trailhead, as golden hour kissed the horizon. However, Utah weather had different plans, there was no golden hour, the sun was behind the clouds and a storm was on the horizon. Yet Bri and Josh were not discouraged, we could be cheesy and say that their love kept them warm, but honestly, it was the Minky Couture blanket that we had in the car; and of course the cake and champagne celebration that we planned!

As the sky darkened, Josh and Brianna held onto each other tightly and toasted their marriage. And despite a storm that had rolled in, bringing wilde winds and even more chill to the air, they shared their first dance with such joy and ease; it was clear they were in their own little world, a world they were just beginning together.
