Providence Canyon Engagement Session // Kylee & Michael

Visiting & hiking state parks is something I’m such a huge fan of, and Providence Canyon had been on my list for a while, so when Kylee & Michael mentioned they were thinking about exploring it with me for their engagement session, I was all in! Providence Canyon has this otherworldly look and feel to it. Not surprisingly, it’s one of the reasons these two wanted to shoot there. So hell yeah, let’s find something weird and amazing!

Providence Canyon Engagement Photos

We chose sunrise for a couple of reasons, fewer people & cooler weather being some of them. The start of the trail has a fantastic view down into the canyons, and the light coming in was just magical. Walking down into the first set of canyons and watching our surroundings change from familiar forests to high canyon walls and sandy ground was something else. We found rivulets of water snaking their way across the canyon floor. One of my favorite takeaways with hiking is exploring different places, getting to see something new and exploring new terrain. I always learn something from the location.

We had cool blue light in the shadows of the canyon walls. And warm bright sunlight peeking over the tops. We had some forest and some spots that looked like desert, tons of variety and versatility. I love a hiking engagement session for so many reasons… But one of those reasons is that it gives you two things other than taking photos to concentrate on. You’re exploring, you’re having fun, you’re engaged in your surroundings {no pun intended}. I would definitely love to return to Providence Canyon, and already have plans to go back on a person trip sometime soon! We only got to dip into a couple of the canyons there, so I know there would be so many new things to find.

If you’re thinking about visiting Providence Canyon, please make sure you’re fully versed in and following the Leave No Trace principles. You can find more information HERE!
