Seriously, Moab is a killer choice for your engagement pics. 

Its dramatic red-rock landscape and inspiring views makes for the most incredible backdrop. 

If you’d like photos at the Arches and Canyonlands national parks or somewhere off the beaten path and lesser known, we know just the spot. 

Your pics are going to be STUNNING!

Whether you’re a Moab local, a regular visitor or planning a trip for the first time, we’re ready to help you.


Hey! We’re Chad and Vanessa, ‘The Outlovers’, and we specialize in photography for outdoor-loving couples.

We’d place a bet your relationship thrives on the cool sh*t: exploring, travel, adventure, learning new things, meeting new people.

Are we right?!

Yup, ours too.

We’d love to be your Moab engagement photographers.

“We couldn’t ask for better photos to remember this perfect adventure. Chad and Vanessa’s huge hearts and calm demeanors make these two a dream team. We feel we have gained two worldly and exceptional friends. We cannot wait to get out and explore together when our (dirt) paths cross again!”

Of course you are. That’s normal!

We know that, for most people, the thought of getting professional photos done can be a little intimidating. 

Don’t worry, we’re here to make the whole experience stress-free, relaxed and FUN!

Before we tell you how we like to do things, we think it’s kinda important to clarify what we’re NOT going to do!

  • We’re NOT just going to rock up, take a few pretty pictures and leave

  • We’re NOT going to force you into a series of unnatural poses that may look great in photos but makes you (or your partner!) feel like a total doofus

  • We’re NOT going to take you the same boring spot that everyone goes to time and time again for photos

So how DO we work?

We’re all about the experience.

We’re going to create an engagement EXPERIENCE for the two of you, not just a photoshoot.

We’re going to take the time to get to KNOW you. We can hop on a call, email back and forth or even meet in person for a coffee or a beer.

We want to get a feel for who you and your partner are as individuals and, even more importantly for engagement photos, who you are as a COUPLE. What you enjoy together, what you thrive on, what makes you laugh, that kind of thing.

That way, we can design a relaxed Moab engagement photo session that feels like YOU. A session that you can look forward to and actually be yourselves at. 

You two enjoy getting outdoors together? Cool. Let’s include a short hike in your engagement session.

Are you both total foodies? Fun. How about bringing a charcuterie board picnic to enjoy, overlooking a dramatic canyon at sunset?

Are you the couple that thrives on doing cool stuff together? Sweet. You could totally hire a Jeep and rock an off-roading adventurous engagement session.

We believe in creating an engagement EXPERIENCE to remember, not just a boring ‘check it off the wedding planning list’ quick photoshoot. 

Sound like a plan?!


“Vanessa and Chad really touched our hearts. The whole experience was effortless and relaxed the entire time, so we truly were able to enjoy each moment we shared as a couple that day. It’s a memory we will forever cherish. THANK YOU!
