When I’m not eating tacos and shooting local weddings here in Cincinnati, I’m usually out on the road, uncovering the United States and making memories with my fiancé. This past summer we took a huge 2 week road trip out to the northwest, and had SO much fun exploring the Northern United States along the way. One of my absolute favorite places (and somewhere I think would be a GREAT elopement spot is Badlands National Park. It looks straight out of a Sci-fi movie and it will amaze you how this rocks look paper-thin and yet stack up so high. There is are easily accessible roads that lead you to trails, where you can follow the path or even walk off and explore on your own! We enjoyed climbing around and even got lost in the rocks for a bit. If you’re looking to channel your inner star-wars vibes and get eloped on the closest thing to the moon or earth, this place is the best. I’d love to photograph a kick-butt elopement here someday.
