Dead Horse Point State Park Engagement

Lisa and Katie wanted to do their engagement session in Moab so I happily suggested Dead Horse Point State Park. Moab is one of my favorite places in the world and I love visiting as much as I possibly can. Even though we had never met in person, I felt like Lisa and Katie had already become my friends with how much we obsessed over Taylor Swift together hahaha 🙂 We had the best time at Dead Horse Point State Park for their sunset engagement session. Even though we planned for sunset, I am so glad that it was dark and moody because that’s who they are (look at their amazing outfits)!

When Lisa and Katie reached out to me earlier this year, their inquiry made me cry. As a lesbian couple, they told me that it was so hard not only finding a photographer who would accept an LGBTQ+ couple in the state of Utah, but also stated on their website that they were LGBTQ+ friendly. I could not believe that in 2021 they had any issues at all. It made me so sad! I will never ever say no to any couple. I strive to have an inclusive business where all are welcome and loved.

Planning Your Dead Horse Point State Park Engagement Session

I’m a Moab wedding and engagement photographer and am super lucky to get to visit this amazing spot a few times a year! If you’re wanting to have your engagement session at Dead Horse Point State Park (I mean, you definitely should), here are a few things you should know:

  • To enter the park, you will need to either have the Utah state parks pass or pay the daily pass fee of $20.00.
  • As of right now, you do not need a permit to take photos in the park. You do need one if you’re getting married, however.
  • The park is an overlook so it can be windy. Since it is the desert, summers are hot 🙂 I recommend doing your engagement photos in Dead Horse Point in the spring or fall.

We did the first part of their engagement photos for sunset and then the next day we met at sunrise to finish their session in Moab.
