My Favorite Spots to Take Photos in Palo Duro Canyon

I have taken engagement, family, senior, and wedding photos in Palo Duro Canyon literally dozens and dozens of times. It never gets old for me! Each time I’m driving on the flat plains and then suddenly the world opens up into the canyon, I am amazed. It is absolutely my favorite place to take pictures around Amarillo, Texas. It is beautiful and versatile. And because of that versatility, I thought it was necessary to create this blog to show some of my favorite spots within the canyon to take photos. These little sub-locations within the canyon are completely different from one another and it’s hard to choose a favorite among them. They all look great any time of year but some can look drastically different from one season to another and on those, I’ve noted which season the picture was taken in.

Sawyer + Emily | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Session

The way Sawyer proposed to Emily was pretty sweet. They knew they were going to get married at some point so they were already touring wedding venues. Their hearts were set on the Fulford Barn outside of Brownfield, Texas. They walked around the property and eventually made it to the lawn where much to Emily's surprise, Sawyer had set up a table with pictures of the two of them, beautiful flowers, and other sweet memorabilia. He then got down on one knee and asked her to become his wife.

Audrey + Josh | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Session

Audrey and Josh are some of those fun, easy going clients that make my job so easy and enjoyable. They claimed that they were "super awkward" at taking pictures but I don't believe it. Once we warmed up a bit, they were so natural and even when we had awkward moments, they just turned them into fun, laughter-filled photos. During their session we also had the amazing experience of coming up on a pair of aoudad sheep hanging out on some cliffs (photo below). I constantly see deer in Palo Duro Canyon but I have never been so close to one of these sheep and I had a little bit of an excited freak out moment. Thanks for bearing with me, Audrey and Josh, and for creating some fun memories with me!

Kailey + Michael | Engagement Photos in Palo Duro Canyon

I love this couple! It was yet another one of those sessions where I got too busy talking and getting to know them and started slacking on my actual job ;) We even talked for 15 minutes after the session was over. Kailey and Michael met at Nick's Fight Club, the gym where Michael works. The first day she was there he walked right up and talked to her. After several more times seeing each other at the gym, Michael eventually learned that Kailey LOVES Disney and he started quoting some of his favorite Disney lines to her. He even used a line from Mulan to ask her out for their first date.

Rachel + Matt | Engagement Session at Texas Tech University

I first met Rachel a few months ago when she booked me for her upcoming wedding and the first time I met Matt was during their engagement session. When I saw them together I instantly knew that they fit perfectly together. I mean, just look at them! Matt is from all over the United States but he moved to Lubbock to accept a job at Texas Tech's library. He then met Rachel at church and they fell in love.
