Micaela & John Michael’s Bryce Canyon Elopement Photos
I’d give anything to go back in time and relive this sunrise with Micaela & John Michael last month! It was truly one of the most beautiful and unforgettable elopement locations you could imagine. They braved a very early wake up call for their Bryce Canyon elopement photos, and it paid off, big time. Bryce is one of the easiest and most beautiful national parks to elope in. So we knocked it out of the park! I’ve been to Bryce Canyon before (It’s where I got engaged!), so I knew that sunrise at Sunset Point would be the best for photos. Then we were graced with a stunning sunrise with a rainbow of color. Every shade of sky from blue and purple appeared, and complimented the bright orange hoodoos that define this iconic park. Add in the green June aspens making this an elopement photographer’s paradise!
Their Bryce Canyon Elopement
They hiked down the trail hand in hand to a spot that felt right. They affirmed their 8-year long relationship just as the sun crested the mountains in the background and lit up the canyon. UMM, you guys, it was GORGEOUS! I was tearing up because I was so honored to be there for their special moments.. AND cracking up because we simply had the best time together! They were witnessed only by birds and chipmunks, and we even found a cicada and named him Paul. Just elopement things 🙂 You already know from my tagline that I usually end up pretttty dirty after my shoots. And this time I really nailed it. I even laid down on the trail and scooted around on it, so I got a full coating of bryce-colored dust. It looks like I took a desert dust bath.. which I basically did. It was so fun to show the newlyweds around the national park as we chased our own shadows and the glowy dawn light to several overlooks for two tiny planets and more sweet moments. John Michael kept kissing Micaela’s hand and helping with her dress – even my husband was swooning. Maybe because he might have been a little jealous. If being doctors doesn’t work out for these two, they could obviously fall back on modeling.
Your Bryce Canyon Elopement Plans
If you ever think you will look awkward when photographed, put those silly negative thoughts in the nearest dumpster and then set that on fire. All you need to do is get married and you will absolutely melt into your partner without a care in the world, I promise! EVERYONE looks good when you’re smiling from ear to ear and having the time of your life.

Micaela shared this kind review for me after I shared her Bryce canyon elopement photos: “We can’t say enough positive things about Lucy. From the very beginning Lucy made us feel so loved and adored. Due to Covid, we moved our Colorado destination wedding. And her photos…man are they PERFECT. The colors are vibrant. The photo selection shows such creativity and this one woman show captures absolutely every angle you could ever want. She is funny, light-hearted, and organized which keeps the day in progression while also keeping everyone calm and happy. She is also selfless. We just feel so honored to have met her and have such a talented photographer capture what was the best day of our lives.”
Brb, I’ll be crying forever..
