Sitting up by a high mountain lake, dressed head to toe in Americana wear, Gamaliel and Sarai were waiting for a cue from us on what to do next during their western Tony Grove destination engagement session. We thought it was appropriate for Gamaliel to give Sarai a compliment to see how she would react. Not just any compliment though, a compliment in a “cowboy” accent (we mean… Gamaliel needed to play the part, right??). Gamaliel took one look at Sarai, smiled a little, and gave a loud “WOOOOOOooooOOOOEEEEE!!!” Although we don’t speak fluent “cowboy”, we can tell you that it was DEFINITELY a compliment!
Gamaliel and Sarai wanted to be somewhere a little different than available from their home in Las Vegas, and Tony Grove definitely delivered on that! Flowers were blooming all around, with a gentle peace and quiet, much different than downtown Las Vegas! Gamaliel and Sarai also told us they had recently gotten into camping, which makes Tony Grove, a super popular northern Utah camping site, a perfect place as well. Both Patriots fans, it was also fitting to have an American flag bandana as part of their wear. In fact, multiple times, we fittingly had them yell “Go Patriots!” as a cue to get them both to react and smile…. we think it worked!
Gamaliel and Sarai! Thanks for traveling all the way up here for your western Tony Grove destination engagement session! We loved getting to know you both and had so much fun! You guys seriously killed it, and can’t wait for you to see the rest of your photos!. We’re excited to see you both again, and know that you will have an amazing wedding day!
