Valley of Fire State Park Sunset Adventure Session

Valley of Fire State Park, what a cool little state park! Right on, Nevada! We had no idea this little red rock desert gem existed until these two mentioned it as a place to do their adventure session. When we looked it up, we were immediately sold.

Valley of Fire State Park: A Nevada Desert Gem

Valley of Fire State Park is apparently fairly popular, judging by how many people we saw wandering around its rocky corridors. But we had no idea it existed. Valley of Fire is like a mini Moab, or a concentrated Sedona or something. But it’s just an hour outside of Las Vegas! One minute you’re driving along a barren desert landscape, and the next you’re traveling between two towering pinnacles of the richest red rock you’ve ever seen. It always amazes us how nature condenses in distinct epic areas like this. If we were in Sedona, they’d call it a Vortex. Max and Aileen told us a story about how they met up in Valley of Fire State Park early in their relationship. They had been kinda doing the long distance thing, and both happened to be on a road trip. Turned out Valley of Fire was the perfect in between point on each of their travels, and they spent a few days there falling in love a whole lot more. So it was fitting that we returned here for their engagement adventure session.

 Valley of Fire was also the perfect location because these two are absolute fire (you knew that was coming). We started by hiking out to a feature in the park called The Wave. It’s formed by this swirly slickrock that undulates across the horizon, and yes, it is very wave-ish. We shot about 10,000 photos out there because that place and these two are so insanely perfect, and then we hiked back to finish out sunset at another spot. We really wanted to get that super rich red rock in some photos for the second location, and boy did we find it. Aileen changed into a green dress that popped against the red background sooooo amazingly. We danced in the road, walked barefoot through soft red dirt, and scrambled up and down boulders, having a blast taking pictures of these two awesome people. There’s no way to truly capture the epicness that is Valley of Fire, but we tried. You’ll just have to go there for yourself. Next time you’re in Vegas and you’ve gambled away all your money, think twice before heading back to the ATM and instead head to Valley of Fire State Park.
