Moab Elopement Photographer

Elopements in Moab

dead horse point
arches & canyonlands
and beyond!

Living in Grand Junction, I love how close we are to Moab! Elopements in Moab have a wide diversity in backdrops, from the local National Parks like Arches and Canyonlands, to the La Sal mountains and tons of BLM land, there are so many exciting "venues" for a Moab elopement photographer.

Moab elopements are wonderful because of our longer season here west of the Rockies. Outdoor weddings can be held from April through November (ask me why I love Moab in winter!) with relatively uneventful weather and warm evenings. While July and August are extremely hot, the light lasts well into the evening allowing some of those golden hour celebrations I love, after the heat of the day has gone down. The purple glow of the La Sals at sunset is one of the prettiest colors in the world.

Where to Elope in Moab

Red Earth Venue - This newer addition to the Moab wedding venue scene is an open-air venue with beautiful red cliffs around the property. It is centrally located and easy to find, making it great if you plan to have guests. 

BLM Land – So much of the iconic Moab photos you've probably seen are on BLM Land in the surrounding area. Your vendors need to hold permits from the BLM Office to work there, though, but lucky for you I hold one of those permits! These spaces are more remote and often less crowded than the parks. 

Glamping Canyonlands - Another newer addition to the venue space in Moab is this glamping campground with luxurious tents to rent out, and beautiful desert views!

Arches National Park – If you’re planning a smaller celebration for your Moab wedding, Arches offers some wedding venue options too! With the bonus of being IN one of the most unique parks in the country, you’ll definitely have a one-of-a-kind wedding at Arches.

Under Canvas Moab – Possibly my favorite and dream Moab wedding venue to shoot at is Under Canvas Moab. A chain of “glamping” tent venues, Under Canvas offers high end camping for a unique experience. Perfect for elopements and intimate wedding celebrations!

Canyonlands National Park – Canyonlands offers some of the most popular wedding venues in Moab too! With the bonus of being IN one of the most unique parks in the country, you’ll definitely have a one-of-a-kind wedding overlooking the expansive, incredible canyons below.

Dead Horse State Park – Much like Arches National Park, if you’re looking for an elopement location in Moab, this one is stunning! You’ll get plenty of those sprawling red rock canyon views you’re dreaming of.

Eloping in Moab

Doesn't need to be intimidating

I get it. You decided to elope and you already know you want to explore Moab for your big day, but how do you manage the permits and crowds that come with eloping in Moab? 

Lucky for you, you've found your way here! As a Moab elopement photographer I help couples like you find solitude and maneuver the logistics of eloping in the Moab area.

-Beth & Dustin

We used Amanda for our wedding and she is the BEST! Our photos turned out amazing and she captured the feel of our night perfectly. She’s also really fun to hang with. We didn’t want her to leave at the end of the night!

"She captured the feel of our night perfectly."

- Brittney & Brandon

Amanda was absolutely amazing! We traveled from out of state to do a destination engagement photoshoot and she made the planning experience stress free! She helped us each step of the way from the initial contact, to picking a location, picking a date for the perfect snow-covered mountain weather, to the actual photoshoot poses. 

"She made the planning experience stress free!"

-Allison & Ethan

Amanda is the perfect wedding photographer. She’s efficient, she gets absolutely all the shots you want and those you didn’t even know you want, and she just blended into our event perfectly. The photos perfectly captured the whole day and I feel like I can easily relive it just by looking back at the photos. I highly recommend Amanda.

"The Perfect Wedding Photographer"

- Kylie & Murat

Amanda did an amazing job on our elopement photos! She was incredibly organized during all the planning and sent incredibly helpful tips and ideas in the months leading up. Plus all her recommendations for other local vendors were fantastic.

"Incredibly organized & helpful"

I specialize in drinking chai tea lattes, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns! I also specialize in capturing the story & scenery of your celebration.

As a full service wedding photographer in Grand Junction, my mission is to preserve your favorite moments in beautiful images for you to relive those best moments of life that fly by too fast.

A Little About Me...

I believe there’s no better sight than the night sky at 10,000 feet.

I also believe you should be able to be authentically you on your wedding day. Whether that’s an off-beat elopement or more traditional wedding celebration, I strive to capture each genuine moment.

I strive to capture the day as it unfolds, all those candid moment to perfectly preserve what it felt like to be there. Too many photographers use their couples' wedding days as a portfolio building time, but you won't find that around here. I'm there for you - not for me!
