Arches National Park Wedding Flatlay Photos

A wedding flatlay is like a snapshot of you wedding day in one image. It includes the little details of your wedding invitations, meaningful items and encompasses the overall theme of your wedding day. As a Utah elopement photographer I love flatlay images because of the ability they have to transport my couples back to their wedding day. So many times we hear that you won’t remember all the details of your wedding day, but with Arches National Park Wedding flatlay photos you will be able to!

When & Where

Typically I like to capture your wedding flatlay images while you are getting ready. This way I can grab your wedding ring, earrings and any other items that you are planning to wear before you put them on for the day!

Wedding Flatlay Photos

These photos will not be specific to the bride or groom, but rather focus on the wedding as a whole. We will grab wedding bands, engagement ring, a few pieces of florals and other little details that create the atmosphere of your wedding day. Here are a few items that you will want to provide.

Your Invitations

Bring the card, envelope, save the date, everything you have! We may not use every piece, but it is better to have it there just in case. And be sure to carry it in a book or briefcase, so that papers remain flat for your wedding photographer to do their magic.

Your Rings!

By capturing your rings together for your Arches National Park wedding flatlay images you will accomplish two things. First, you create the opportunity to stage a meaningful and timeless image that will last for generations. And secondly, I hate to even say this, but if you ever lose your wedding bands you will at least have images to look back on.

Groom’s Arches National Park Wedding Flatlay Photos

Not enough grooms get wedding flatlay images, which is such a shame! I love getting to capture what your groom chooses to wear and the small fun details that make him unique as a groom. It shows so much of his personality while making making photography special for him as well. Here are a few of my favorite items to include from the groom.

Socks & Shoes

Your socks always reflect SO MUCH of who your are! It is very rare that I get a groom with plain black socks. You should show them off in your wedding flatlay images.
