Meet your local Utah elopement photographers

Hey, we’re Chad and Vanessa, ‘The Outlovers’. As locals to the area, we’d love to be your Utah elopement photographers.

We live and breath for elopement adventures in the great outdoors and know allllll the best spots to take you.

Whether you want to hike to a soaring arch at sunrise, or off-road to an epic mountain pass for sunset, or light up a fire and stargaze after dark…. We know just the place.

Better yet?

We know where to find the killer views WITHOUT all the tourists.

We’re not going to take you to the latest ‘Utah elopement’ Instagram hotspot.

We’re going to take you to all the lesser known hidden gems that we’ve found after years of exploring this beautiful state!

“Look no further if you want a down to earth couple who seriously know what they are doing and can take away every ounce of stress. They are experts and their local knowledge was invaluable. Our pictures are flawless and absolutely breathtaking!”

– Brandon + Tina

“Chad and Vanessa kept everything so simple for us. Throughout the planning process, we stayed excited and completely at ease knowing we were fully taken of. I can remember telling people how relaxed I was feeling! Our day was absolutely perfect. We felt like we had known Vanessa and Chad for years, and we just had a blast the entire day. Watching their dynamic throughout the day was a joy as well. We could tell they absolutely LOVE what they do and truly cared about us.”

    We love all the national parks, particularly Canyonlands and Capitol Reef. But, honestly? Our FAVORITE spots are outside the parks. When you work with us as your Utah elopement photographers, we share alllll our best hidden-gem locations with you!

    These will vary with location, from completely free to around $300. As your Utah elopement photographers, we’ll walk you through the process.
