Native Zion Elopement in Northern Utah
We've just recently been to the desert terrain near Las Vegas and have a complete new appreciation for this type of incredibly beautiful terrain. The natural textures, vibrant colors, and ancient history make for an inspiring trip. When we came across these images by Tyler Rye, we knew we had to share - talk about a beautifully edgy wedding style! Below you'll read more of the inspiration and where the concept of this Zion elopement came from, courtesy of Tyler...
From Tyler Rye: "This is a shoot from my recent Zion Workshop. I grew up in a family that had close ties to the Native American Indians in northern Arizona. I remember looking for arrowheads and pottery when I was growing up and we always had pieces in our home. I took that love of native art and it inspired this shoot for my workshop.
I wanted to focus more on the organic things from the past so you wont see any of the over done jade jewelry and such. Rather a focus on pottery and simple living.
I shot this in away to show the couple meeting in the desert, spending some time together, washing before vows and then ending with dinner."
