Justin & Glorianna | Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session!
Earlier this month, Tiffany from Baldwin Bridal and I set out on a four day weekend adventure to Utah! We went to photograph Justin and Glorianna’s beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session!
Tiffany and I have been dreaming of traveling together! We’ve been working on plans to do destination sessions and destination weddings together since we first met!
We finally found the perfect opportunity when Glorianna posted on the Rising Tide Society searching for a photographer for their Anniversary Session! Justin and Glorianna were taking a week long trip for their one year anniversary to visit several National Parks! When we first connected with Justin and Glorianna we had plans to meet them out at Horseshoe Bend, but plans had to be changed so we met up for the Anniversary Session at Bryce Canyon!
On the day of their Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session we met up early in the afternoon and headed into Bryce Canyon to explore the area! We made a pit stop at the gorgeous Natural Bridge that was there and then made our way to the Navajo Trail to go hiking down into the canyon!
Walking through the canyon with the Hoodoos towering high above us in their gorgeous red and white colors was simply STUNNING! Nothing like I had ever experienced before! At the bottom of the Navajo Trail off the beaten path we found the PERFECT location to do the Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session! It was a beautiful forest full of tall trees, golden light, and the stunning cliffs in the background! A photographers DREAM!
At the end of Justin and Glorianna’s Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session we stopped along the top rim of the canyon where Justin and Glorianna read their Love Letters to each other! It was absolutely HEART MELTING and I can’t WAIT to more beautiful, sweet, romantic destination sessions and weddings like this!
Justin and Glorianna’s Story!
Justin and Glorianna met each other at church one Wednesday evening when they both attended the Wednesday church service! At the end of the service Glori’s friend, who had attended the service with her, introduced her to Justin! From there they started hanging out together, enjoying each others company and enjoying their favorite foods!
When Glorianna was in New York with her family on a family trip, Justin proposed to her in front of Central Park. Justin had been secretly working with Glori’s sister to make sure that Glorianna was in the right place for the proposal. When Glori and her family got to Central Park, her sister took a photo of Glorianna in front of it and then showed it to her. Justin was in the background of the photo holding a sign that said “Will you marry me?!”! When she turned around she seen Justin coming down the staircase to her!
Some of Justin and Glorianna’s favorite things to do together are to try new foods or drinks, travel + adventure together, taking photos (they’re both photographers too!), and cooking together!
Justin is originally from Canada but he grew up in Atlanta, Georgia! Glorianna is originally from Indonesia but she came here to go to college and the rest is history once they met that one Wednesday night after church!
The AMAZING wedding vendors who helped create this beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park Anniversary Session!
Tiffany, from Baldwin Bridal, was the stylist for this beautiful destination anniversary session! She incorporated the gorgeous metal lanterns with twinkly lights for the session to give it that dreamy romantic adventurer feel! She also styled the Love Letter detail photos to incorporate some of the natural Bryce Canyon rocks we had found along our hike!
Sara, from Krysteliart, did the beautiful calligraphy work for the Love Letters and she made them into a gorgeous little booklet for them to read from!
