Even though we were in the Palo Duro Canyon on family vacation, I knew we’d be bummed if we didn’t get to use that gorgeous background to create some portraits. So when we realized that one of our late summer wedding couples was going to be in the area the same time that we were, we didn’t let that opportunity go to waste! They were such great sports about the hiking and a few bug bites… not to mention our kiddos tagging along. But we hope these incredible images make the rather unorthodox experience TOTALLY worth it. 🙂
Here are some of our very favorites!
This scenery… swoon!
That last little bit of sunlight in a summer day is always so romantic!
Fun fact: The dry cracked earth that Chris & Cie are laying on here turned into a several-feet-deep pond just about 6 hours later when a MONSTER storm hit the canyon. So I’m glad we got this shot when we did!
Picking a favorite would be nearly impossible, but this next image might be it for me…
You. Guys!! Thank you so much for making the drive, and dealing with bug bites and heat and rolling thunder in the distance to have us make this magic for you. We’re so excited that it’s only a couple weeks before we get to see y’all again!
