Gio and Josh had such an adventurous Zion glamping elopement to celebrate their day. This elopement was full of love, laughter, and memories that I’ll never forget! These two have been together for 10 years and were such a dream to work with.

They both radiate so much joy and kindness that made the whole experience ten times better. It is such a blessing to be able to photograph couples like Gio and Josh in beautiful places like Open Sky, Zion. The many romantic moments between the couple and stunning views all throughout truly made this an experience of a lifetime.

Zion Glamping Getting Ready Photos 

Gio and Josh love to travel the world together and experience new cultures along the way, so eloping in Open Sky, Zion was an absolute no brainer for them. Some other incredible things they have experienced together include the lantern festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand and catching the northern lights in full effect in Iceland.

They are definitely the type of people that never pass up an adventure! Gio started off the day in a unique camp accommodation for some gorgeous getting ready photos. We took lots of fun dress shots with a boudoir, bridal moment. I adored the florals on Gio’s dress as well. The pops of pink from the roses matched Josh’s suit perfectly and brought so much personality to the photos! 

Breathtaking Views without the Hassle 

The location where Gio and Josh said their vows and took portraits was just a short drive up the road in Open Sky, Zion. The warmth from the sunlight and lush greenery surrounding them created the perfect atmosphere for their elopement. The views were unreal!

The best part about this elopement is that you can have an amazing experience at Open Sky with beautiful Zion views without having to deal with permits or crowds since you’re not in the national park. It makes the whole experience completely seamless and relaxing all around.
