Spring Fisher Towers Wedding with Carly and Chase

Sometimes being a wedding photographer can be frustrating, and with the Summer Fisher Towers Wedding with Carly and Chase, this was the case.

As a professional photographer with a lot of years of experience, I know what will look good where and when. I have traveled all over the state and have done many photo sessions in all types of backgrounds. And I know rocky desert backgrounds very well. So, when Carly and Chase chose Fisher Towers in Moab, I was very excited. There are many amazing desert places to do photo sessions, but Fisher Towers is one of the most beautiful. The red-rock and spiraling towers against the blue sky makes it very unique and beautiful.

I had already shot both engagements and a bride and groom session for Carly & Chase, and both sessions were so amazing, I was really excited to go to their wedding in Moab. I thought the plan was for me to come up early to Fisher Towers and scout out a location to do the wedding, then let them know, but when I arrived at Carly's house in Moab, I found out that they had already chosen a location.

For Spring break last year, I went to Fisher Towers and mapped out all the best places to take pictures in case I ever had a photo shoot here. Unfortunately, the location the groom selected to do the wedding was not one I would have chosen. First off, it was side lit, meaning there would be harsh shadows on either the brides or the grooms face. Second, it was on a rock precipice where only about 60 degrees of the rock was available for me to stand and shoot on. The rest faced a steep canyon that did not give any visible access to the bride or groom. And finally there was a very hazy background. And it was hear breaking because there were so many other perfect places to shoot really close to that area. But everybody had already arrived before I knew where they had chosen for their wedding site and moving everybody again would not have worked.

So, I did the best I could with what I had, then after the wedding I took a few pictures in the places I liked better, it's just that we did not have enough time and were not in the right area of Fisher towers. For future reference, I am going to use this story to tell clients why they should consult with me before picking a location.

All in all, I got some great pictures, and I loved working with Carly & Chase, but I am a perfectionist when it comes to my job, and I want the best pictures possible for my clients. I want them to look at them for years to come and say, "Wow" those are some amazing pictures.

The pictures above are just a very few of my favorites from the Spring Fisher Towers Wedding with Carly and Chase. Enjoy!
