Monahans Sandhills Inspired Elopement | Texas Elopement Photographer

Updated: Jun 18

Thinking of eloping in Texas but not sure where you should go? Monahans Sandhills State Park such a cool and unique area! West Texas is the land of oil fields and expanse land for as far as the eye can see. And then, out of nowhere miles and miles of sand dunes rise up. It definitely feels like you're in a different state or country!! Monahans Sandhills is the perfect location for your unique elopement adventure.

Kaitlyn & Cayden got married in September 2019 and had the most fun and beautiful wedding surrounded by their family and friends. Although their wedding was amazing, the planning aspect was stressful trying to please everyone and it went by way too fast.

They wanted to celebrate their love again somewhere wild where they could focus just on each other. So we went to Monahans Sandhills State Park in Texas to celebrate their 5 year dating anniversary. They celebrated their love, reaffirmed their vows, and ran around the dunes playing where they could be and do whatever they wanted. They brought along their new puppy which made the day the absolute cutest!!

Kaitlin had the most perfect dress from Signature Bridal for a day filled with running around sand dunes. It was light and stretchy to allow movement while also having a train to blow beautifully in the wind. Cayden proudly wore his wedding attire and wasn't worried at all about getting his suit sandy. They were 100% up for running around the dunes and snuggling in the sand as the sun went down. Monahans Sandhills was the absolute perfect location for their second elopement style celebration. They're both such beautiful, laid back, fun humans and I'm so honored to be able to capture their love story for a second time.

a new kind of sand ceremony!
