My sister lives in St. George and we usually make our way down there a few times a year. This time we visited Snow Canyon State Park to climb down the Lava Tubes, which is a great activity for kids and cool in the caves to get out of the heat. As we were hiking back, and driving out of the park, I couldn’t stop myself from wanting to do a session there. The landscape is unreal. Beautiful red rocks, the cool tones of the sagebrush against the warmth of the mountains is breathtaking and you can’t beat the views. I’m in love!! I would love to do more session down there. St. George photographers are so lucky! I would love to do more engagements and formal sessions down in Snow Canyon.
Rylie and Adam were willing to let me explore Snow Canyon with them that evening in a last minute session. I was in heaven. And they are so cute together. They have been best friends for 8 years and dating for about 8 months. I adore they way they look at each other and laugh. Rylie is going to study English for Secondary Education and Adam is headed to start working on his Physical Therapy degree. I’m so excited for them and this start into an exciting part of their lives.
This is the cutest thing. Adam and Rylie both have necklaces with each other’s initials.
Check out one of my favorite Engagement session here.
Snow Canyon State Park
The canyon has been the site of Hollywood films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Electric Horseman, and Jeremiah Johnson. Originally called Dixie State Park, it was later renamed for Lorenzo and Erastus Snow, prominent pioneering Utah leaders. It’s $10 per car to get in and you could easily spent a few days there exploring all the different trials, sand dunes, rock features, and historical sites. There is also camping there. It’s often overlooked because its close to Zion’s, but the incredible views make up for its small size. Located just northwest of St. George, Snow Canyon State Park offers visually outstanding views of red, white, and dark brown to black rocks and provides examples of a variety of interesting geological features.
