Dreamy Dead Horse Point Engagement Photos

Kylie and Caleb’s dreamy Dead Horse Point State Park engagement photos taken in November are some of my all-time favorites! 🙂 They decided to bring their sweet and super excited dog, Bentley, with them. We made the mistake of bringing a ball for him, which he obsessed over for the entire engagement session hahaha! We met for sunset engagement photos at Dead Horse Point State Park near Moab, Utah. Sunrise and sunset both offer beautiful vistas.

When is the best time to take my engagement photos at Dead Horse Point?

I recommend visiting the park between the months of late September and early May. The elevation is pretty high at Dead Horse Point (5,000′ of elevation) so it does get chilly in the winter months, but it is manageable. I would avoid visiting in the summer months because it is extremely hot and can be crowded with tourists. My favorite months at Dead Horse Point are October, November, March, and April when the temperatures are mild and the park isn’t as busy!

I met up with Kylie and Caleb at the park and Kylie and I immediately gushed over the new Taylor Swift album (she’s a major Swiftie too…she even was wearing some TS merchandise). We started on the west side of the park to catch those last few golden rays before the sun set behind the red cliffs. They brought two outfits – one more casual and one more dressy. Luckily it wasn’t too cold or windy on this particular November day. Once the sun had gone down, we went to the east side of the park to get some photos with the gorgeous La Sal Mountains behind them and that last bit of light on their faces.

Kylie and Caleb are getting married at the Church of Dirt next summer and I cannot wait to celebrate them then 🙂
