I try to keep most of my locations low key and under the radar. Especially locations that have yet to be discovered by the masses, but Snow Canyon State Park is well known amongst locals, tourists, photographers, and instagrammers alike. Located just five minutes outside of Saint George, Utah, a major destination city with all of the amenities you could ever want, including a growing airport, it’s no wonder that Snow Canyon is no longer the hidden secret it once was. Even with it’s popularity, it’s still easy on all but the busiest weekends to find a secluded spot for an elopement.
Are you interested in a Snow Canyon State Park Elopement? Great! You should be, it’s seriously amazing, and easy. Here are the necessary steps to make sure you follow the rules and have an amazing elopement!
I can’t emphasize this enough, permits are required for weddings and elopements alike, as well as commerical photography. Basically if you are paying someone to take your photos there, then they need a permit. If your photography says don’t worry about it, we won’t get caught…PLEASE, do yourself and the park a favor and find someone else. Given that the average wedding venue can cost between 1,000 and 3,000+ dollars a permit is a cheap way to secure an amazing location. Plus the more we post your amazing photos, the more people that are going to want to elope there increasing the need for more workers, etc. Your permit fee goes right back into taking care of and preserving this amazing location for your kids, or if you don’t plan on having kids then for your friends’ kids. Seriously, permits are GREAT! and they are easy to get.
