Peyton + Danny were one of the absolute cutest couples I've ever had the privilege of shooting. The love between them was so evident and radiant, and it was such an honor to capture that. They were the first maternity couple I ever got to shoot and it sparked a whole new love for me. We shot at sunrise at Dead Horse State Park in Utah. I had never been there before and drove out in the pitch black.

They got up well before sunrise so that we could should with some of the most beautiful light that Utah would provide. There are two golden hours during a day, and at this location, sunrise was best because the sun would peek up over the horizon line, providing the perfect backlighting. I was in awe as the sun began to hit some of the most beautiful canyons and desert I'd ever seen!

They were such an easygoing, laid back couple, so we tried some new angles and double exposures.

I was absolutely living for these fall, deserty colors. Being from the Pacific Northwest, we get a looottt of green out here, so the change of scenery was so fun to work with and edit.
