Boho Moab Engagement Photos

Olivia and Austin’s Moab engagement photos were so cold and so fun! We met up on a cold December Saturday at Dead Horse Point State Park for their sunset photos. December is such a great time to visit Moab because there are hardly any people there and this day was no exception. There were maybe 4 other cars in the parking lot to watch the sunset. It was pretty cold, but they were troopers and powered through the cold with their dog, Zoey.

How to Plan Your Moab Engagement Photos

When planning your engagement photos in Moab, you have to think about two main things:

  1. Where to Take Your Photos. You have to decide where to take your engagement photos, which I can help you with.
    • Dead Horse Point State Park. I love coming here because since it is a state park, it isn’t as crowded as the national parks, yet it looks like one.
    • Arches National Park. Arches is my favorite national park in Utah. There are so many cool spots (of course tons of arches) to take your engagement photos here.
    • Canyonlands National Park. Canyonlands is less popular than Arches and there is so much sprawling land for your photos!
  2. When to Take Your Photos.
    • Spring. I love coming to Moab in the spring because the temperatures are still mild and the flowers are all blooming.
    • Summer. The summers can be pretty brutal in Moab especially from mid-June to mid-September.
    • Fall. The fall is also super nice in Moab with milder temperatures and less crowds.
    • Winter. We took these photos in the winter and it was cold, but it was manageable. It had just snowed in Moab.
