Being a traveling wedding photographer allows one to visit absolutely beautiful locations. I had that pleasure on December 1st when I traveled to the state of Nevada to work with Mylie + Ryan, a couple that will be getting married in Tampa, Florida in November of 2022.

The beautiful location we visited was the Valley of Fire State Park, about 50 or so miles outside of the city of Las Vegas. I had seen pictures of the park before, but witnessing it with my own two eyes was a whole different experience.

I remember when Mylie suggested doing the engagement session in the Valley of Fire, and I jumped at the opportunity. I’m so glad she suggested it because the place really is epically beautiful.

After a quick stop to the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on the Las Vegas Strip, we made our way to the Valley of Fire. With plenty of daylight available, we made use of as many of the park’s notable landmarks as we could.

One of my favorite parts of the session included a hike to Slot Canyon, which looked like we were on a different planet. I absolutely adored that setting.

Another favorite part of the session was catching sunset as we exited the park. We all got to see why they called the spot the Valley of Fire because of the way the setting sun hit the rocks and the desert. It was a gorgeous way to close out our time in the Valley of Fire.

When we exited the Valley of Fire, Mylie + Ryan weren’t quite done with things. We all enjoyed a dinner on the Las Vegas Strip before finishing things with a quick photo session to take advantage of all the lights, glitz, and glamour of Sin City. It was an aces way to close out an absolutely incredible engagement session.

I want to thank Mylie + Ryan so much for choosing me to be their wedding photographer and suggesting this engagement session in the Valley of Fire + Las Vegas Strip. I can’t wait to photograph their special day in Tampa!
