gabi + brandon | cozy safari tent photo session in the utah desert | under canvas moab


When I originally reached out to Under Canvas Moab to do a photo session on their property, I was really excited about doing an in-home style session inside one of their tents. It's pretty obvious by our site that we typically shoot outside in epic environments, so it was a fun challenge for me to do an entire session inside! If you saw our post last week from Gabi and Brandon's desert wedding inspired session in Canyonlands and on the Under Canvas property, we actually did this session the same day as a wedding day-after inspiration session to show the full scope of what Under Canvas Moab has to offer! We are huge fans on wedding day-after sessions because they are so relaxed and sweet, and it's easy to get our couple's true emotions because they're stoked to be married!

This session with Gabi and Brandon was so fun and felt really natural. I love how playful and sweet they were, dancing around and cuddling up! They never stayed still and we spent the hour shooting and laughing together which allowed for the photos to be candid and natural. Under Canvas Moab is definitely a luxurious camping experience with a real bed, leather sofa, woodburning stove and a fully functional restroom! We were really tempted to fire up the stove despite the warm outside temps. The rooms are so cozy and perfectly quirky, definitely a luxury camping experience! I love how the comfortable, relaxed vibe of this session meshes with the more traditional, formal vibe of their wedding inspiration session. If you're planning a wedding, we definitely suggest considering a day-after session where you're staying or in a gorgeous place nearby! It's such a fun way to document those fresh emotions!
