Zion National Park Engagement : Sophie + Mazen

This Zion National Park engagement session is one we will never forget! A few weeks ago, Sophie and Mazen asked us if we’d like to spend three days exploring with them in Utah. Of course we said yes! And so the adventure began…

Sophie and Mazen traveled all the way from their home in Los Angeles, California to meet us in the freshly powdered Zion National Park. All the rangers warned us to be careful on the icy roads. Apparently we had arrived during a rare time of snow! It was a pleasant surprise because none of us had ever visited before.

If Sophie and Mazen already look familiar to you, you might remember this blog post about their post apocalyptic inspired waterfall shoot we did a few years back. They are seriously #relationshipgoals. They drove us all around Zion Canyon and Bryce Canyon in pursuit of the most epic photo locations we could find. We even managed to stumble upon a herd of Bison and long horn sheep!

Sophie and Mazen, we’ve been looking forward to your engagement session all year, and it was even better than we imagined! We loved exploring Utah with you and capturing all the joy the two of you share! It was SO hard to narrow down the images for this post, so be forewarned, this post is a long one! We are SO excited for your Joshua Tree wedding in September. It’s going to be equally as epic.

On the first day in Utah, we simply drove through Zion National Park soaking everything in…

We all wore a million layers of clothing to stay warm in the 18 degree weather…but it was worth every second…

Sophie and Mazen share a connection between each other that many people don’t ever find in life. They are true soulmates…

…and their family is made complete with their adorable dog Tashi.

He is such a friendly little pup!

Sophie is a professional yoga instructor, and so it was only appropriate that Mazen picked  out the most beautiful wedding ring in the shape of a lotus flower.

With not another person in sight…we all enjoyed the silence of the wilderness…

They both loved their fur coats and reminded us of a scene from the Game of Thrones…

…so of course we had to end the road trip with a fun snowball fight, which ultimately ended with Mazen throwing his head back in laughter like a little kid from all the snow falling on them!
