Have you ever heard of Black Canyon of the Gunnison? No? Well put it on your list of must-go’s! It’s a National Park not many people have heard of, which makes it all the more quiet but still breathtakingly beautiful! Think of avatar- but in real life!
This session was a special one. I connected immediately with these two (Zach and Kate are travel bloggers that live in Utah!) and we had a blast hiking and shooting together. We were so lucky to get perfect weather, it was a perfect temperature, and the canyon views were incredible!
I was a little apprehensive when we went to scout this location earlier in the day, because the sun was so harsh on the canyon! (by the way, this canyon is so deep the middle only gets 30 min of sunlight a day- how crazy is that?!). I’ve also NEVER seen any engagement or wedding photos shot at Black Canyon. Even though the sun was a bit harsh, it still turned out amazing and these two were so in love!
I would totally recommend Black Canyon to couples wanting to elope in a unique place in Colorado. We maybe saw one or two other small groups/couples on our hike, and you can’t beat the views! They were incredible- dare I say almost better than the Grand Canyon…
