Horseshoe Bend is one of those places that is incredibly rare.
Unfortunately it is also a place that is highly visited. But Since I am good at my job, I was able to make it look like it was just us there. Katy is a fellow photographer in the PNW, a friend and she was going on a road trip herself in roughly the same areas. It turns out we would be at Horseshoe Bend at the same time. So I brought up the idea of letting me photograph her and her (German) boyfriend Toby. I had gone there earlier that day to scout out the location. OH MY GOSH! I was two things. 1. In complete shock and awe of how beautiful this place is! 2. Dying of heat. It was May and yet it was 80 degrees out! Thankfully by the time we started taking photos at sunset the temp had gone down to a much nicer 75. But thankfully just reading this you won’t feel quite as hot, but let’s see if I’m wrong..
The sunset was like one I never saw before. It was almost too beautiful to handle. The red rocks, the winding river below, and yes, Katy and Toby were very sweet.
It was pretty funny that it was quite windy while we were there with gusts blowing Katy’s white dress up and she kept flashing everybody her booty.
