Running Around in Utah's Own Sand Dunes
Brittney + Trey chose to go on an amazing adventure for their elopement. We met in Little Sahara Recreation Area in Utah. This plot of BLM land is home to a sea of sand dunes, campsites, and plenty of room to run barefoot or drive ATVs.
The two got ready together alongside their trusty 4 Runner before heading into the dunes. We quickly ditched our shoes and felt the warm sand between our toes. Clouds floated above as the wind changed between gently pulling us along and tugging at our hair and clothes. The echo of its roar was loud, but Brittney and Trey didn’t seem to care. They were too busy being in the moment with one another.
We explored sandy ridges, took in the changing colors as the sun began to set, and enjoyed the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in awhile. Utah has a way of setting the sky ablaze in pink. The sand dunes reflected that color making the landscape so dreamy. The two danced in blue hour and took in every last drop of light.
Covered in sand and tired from running around, we headed back tot he parking lot to go get a well deserved meal. The Little Sahara sand dunes were such a perfect place to celebrate their love. Now this landscape holds memories that are dear to them forever.
