Zion National Park Workshop- The Candle Bride

Zion National Park has some really cool landscapes and I have been lucky enough to find a few hidden gems! The first part of this shoot took place in one of those hidden gems! A slot canyon that I found while taking engagements a few years ago. I love it because it's open enough to get a lot of light but also features some really cool tones and textures in the rocks. We had a blast exploring this area and taking some portraits while the table and everything else was being set up!

  When I first started planning this session I thought it would be really cool to turn a branch into a real working candle, with flames coming off the tips of different spots along the branch and use that as the centerpiece for the shoot. However, it turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would! We still ended up using a lot of candles to bring this shoot to life! Again thank you to the team of creative that put so much hard work into this shoot! It came together perfectly! I wouldn't be able to do these workshops without you! I would love to know what you guys think of this one so please leave a comment or two!
