Little Sahara Couple | Nan + Trent
Little Sahara Couple Session
This couples session was done at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes in Nephi, Utah. I have never shot photos at the sand dunes before. So when I proposed it to Nan and Trent and they agreed I was thrilled! It is a beautiful location, but many times couples just want to go somewhere closer to home. It took me about an hour and a half to get there, but it was well worth it.
Nan and Trent are the most wonderful couple. They are easy to talk to and so willing to try new things with me! I’ve known Nan for a few years and I’m just so happy to see her happy with Trent. He is an amazing guy.
When we arrived the first thing I did was take off my shoes. I did this session entirely barefoot. It was just so much easier than having to worry about trying to keep my shoes on walking up and down sand dunes. I had Nan and Trent keep theirs on for awhile, but eventually we kicked theirs off too!
The sand there is literally so velvety soft. I had heard of the sand dunes and other photographers taking photos there before, but I never realized how amazing the sand would be and how gorgeous it was. Near the end of the session, we even got some photos of the moon in the background with almost purple skies. It was unreal.
Nan and Trent knew just what to do I hardly had to direct them. I always strive for my couples to be natural and do what they think feels good to them. I will direct you and if I see something out of place I’ll fix it (i.e. hair, chin down a tiny bit, etc.), but for the most part I let you and your fiancé take the reigns so we can capture beautiful, natural looking photos.
