Desert Oasis: Southern Utah Landscapes

This beautiful, summer-ready session by Charity Rebekah Photography puts the beauty of love right up against the beauty of Utah’s most iconic backdrops, providing some incredible inspiration for the modern, outdoor-loving bride!

How lucky are we to have such beautiful photo backdrops like this available in Southern Utah, just a drive away? After adventuring around chasing sunlight on a bright morning earlier this year, photographer Charity Rebekah and her lovely couple of models, Ashlie + Jahren Makanoa, found this picture-perfect setting. Her goal was to welcome summer, and the combination of greenery and desert landscape did so perfectly! And even better than the jaw-dropping desert views are the visions of love from the happy couple – the Makanoas are quite obviously head over heels for each other. “This made them the perfect candidates for the shoot. At the same time they know how to have a good time and be silly! We laughed the whole day as we chased the sun, it was really such an amazing day.”
