Sometimes I take a photo and fall deeply in love with it. It happened when I took this photo. It was one of the final shots from this goooorgeous sunset mountain hiking session, and I almost didn't take it. But I noticed these two lingered a little while in their snuggling while admiring the last bit of glow after the sun dipped below the horizon, and this photo happened pretty organically. It's a little magical, if you ask me. 💙

Lass uns durchbrennen und zu zweit heiraten!
Lass uns an wunderschönen Orten bleiben und uns ganz auf uns konzentrieren.
Ich LIEBE Hochzeiten zu zweit oder in ganz kleinem Rahmen. Wir haben auch „nur“ zu zweit geheiratet und es war die beste Entscheidung.
One thing I love about being a part of this industry is the amazing people I get to meet and work with! @kristian.designs is a good friend and amazing florist. We had been daydreaming this shoot for months, and I was having a hard time finding a model I loved. I told her, “Kristian, I need to clone you because you’d be perfect but you’re already doing flowers” and without hesitation, she said “I can do both!!” and volunteered her and her handsome beau to be our models. She’s a crazy person. And I love that I get to work with people who are as passionate (if not more) about their work as I am. •
Next month I’m heading to the @hustleandflowofficial workshop in Orlando and I am SO FREAKING PUMPED. I can’t wait to better myself and my business. I can’t wait to meet even more talented vendors and to just be a sponge the whole 2 days and learn as much as I can. Here’s to vendor friends who become real life friends, and to always being in pursuit of a better you ✨
To be honest I wasn't ready to get married...
But then again, is anyone one hundred percent ready for anything? No.
Don't get me wrong, my decision to get married was rooted in love. I wouldn't change a thing. Eloping on our favourite beach will forever be part of my highlight reel.
However, my ego definitely had a hand in my desire to be married. Part of me was hoping that by becoming a wife I'd suddenly feel whole.
I felt like I had something to prove. That if I changed my name and announced to the world that someone chose me it would make up for parts of my past I was still ashamed of.
It didn't do any of that. Instead, being married held up a mirror to everything I had been avoiding. EVERYTHING.
When the honeymoon was long over and we were at home with two babies fighting over something I can't remember, it suddenly hit me. "Oh shit, I committed the rest of my life to this person."
No regrets. I tell him all the time this isn't the first lifetime we've shared but it was definitely a moment of wondering how I was going to clean up the mess of a shattered illusion.
What I've learned is that marriage isn't a destination. I thought it was the last stop before happiness but it's actually just part of the journey.
My husband has watched me evolve over and over and over. He'd be the first to tell you I've been like six different people in the ten years he's known me.
Isn't that the purest form of love, though? Loving someone so much you want them to grow into the best version of themselves? Loving someone so much that you put your own insecurities aside and let them shine?
So whatever it is you don't feel ready for, just go for it. It's gonna be messy. You're going to question yourself. You'll clean it up just in time for it to get messy again. I promise you though, it's worth it. ❤️✨

Throwback (do people still say that? Idk) to literally running around the mountains with Stephanie in Montana back in May. Clients that become friends are the best 🥰✨
“Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” — Pico Iyer

Finishing up a couple of weddings today and then have a ton of uploading and backing up to do. I am so excited for all my upcoming weddings and shoots. Fall is upon us and the colors and weather are a dream!

I have been doing a lot of elopements and portrait photography lately, but have been torn about sharing the photos on this account because in the past, I have always just shared primarily my landscape work. What do you guys think? Are you interested in seeing all of my work, or should I try to stick to landscapes and keep my other work on a separate account (@christinaadeleportraits). Let me know your thoughts! These are all from an elopement last week.
About two years ago, we were living in our van near Moab when Devyn messaged me on Instagram and said “hey, I’m Cassie’s best friend, so we should be friends. Can we cook you dinner tonight?” Cassie was one of our new friends and we loved her (and her now husband Chris) and I also love dinner, so we obliged and met up with some strangers in their van in the desert (not as sketchy as it sounds, in fact it’s a common theme for a lot of our friendships).
Well, let me tell you...Devyn made us the most delicious dinner that could make Martha Stewart look twice, in her VAN. I was kinda blown away. Like who are these dirtbag, van-living desert climbers that do things like marinade steaks and have a full spice rack in their sprinter?! And have a closet with hang up clothes?!?!
It wasn’t long before Devyn and Adam made their way into our hearts with epic meals and even better conversation, and really really fun climbing adventures. Now it’s hard to remember when we didn’t know them. From two week mobile van block parties, to warm cookies in Indian Creek, to beautiful hand cracks, SUPing the Merced in Yosemite, and skiing out to a yurt in the La Sal...our times with these two have never been boring. But this weekend has to be a highlight. Devyn and Adam got married in the mountains outside of Moab and it was so gorgeous and so much fun. And then today, we woke up before sunrise for some portraits in the desert where they fell in love and climbed up a classic tower with her veil on the whole way. It was incredible. I haven’t gone through the photos from today because I’m barely still awake, but here’s one of my favorites from their romantic ceremony spot...truly a hidden gem among Moab’s endless sandstone cliffs and canyons.
Devyn + Adam aka vanlife mom + dad, aka sports mom + trad dad, I love you two so much. I can’t wait to see what we get into next.
