Back in January of 2019 my husband and I took a spur of the moment family vacation to Zion National Park. It was the trip that sparked my adventurous soul. We went with zero expectations – just for some family fun (oh and you know I had to hire a photographer to capture our hiking adventures, duh!) it ended up being the best family vacay we ever had – no set timelines just exploring new sights and chasing the sun.

A week after that trip we were notified that we would be relocating from Tampa, Florida to Minot, North Dakota. Though a cross country move away from my hometown and to a location literally polar opposite of what I am used to wasn’t ideal, it meant that maybe we would have more opportunity to travel. 

We made it a goal to start adventuring to all of the National Parks, we want our boys to grow up with an appreciation for our world and all the beauty that nature has to offer. At the ages of just four and seven, our kiddos have traveled to FIVE national parks – Zion, Theodore Roosevelt, Grand Teton, Yellowstone and the Great Smokey Mountains. 

If you’re an adventurous soul and wanting to plan an amazing vacay or elopement at a National Park, reach out!

“I will start by saying that we had the best experience from start to finish! From my first email, to the last ‘I Do’. I booked Katie Gahring Photography to capture the most amazing moment of my life. I planned my surprise proposal in the North Unit – Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Katie stood amongst other tourists and captured the raw moment perfectly. I loved the experience and how easy she was to work with that we stayed and took our engagement session in the same night.”
