This wasn't my first time...

hiking amid the towering sandstone cliffs of Snow Canyon State Park with Rachel and Mackenzie. Rather, that first weekend hiking session was for our mutual friends wedding photos on the petrified sand dunes. We were all in the bridal party, hiking up the red rocks in bridesmaid dresses and suits (which always results in epic photos). Ever gallant, Mackenzie offered to help his brand new acquaintance, Rachel, up the dunes in her heels. Fast forward to a year a half later, to their incredibly beautiful engagement session in that same stunning state park. An extra rainy spring blessed them with a blooming desert backdrop to their gorgeous romance. Also, her opal engagement ring glowed just like their smiles.
