Travel: Arizona + Utah Road Trip // Summer 2019 by Ian Michelman

I’m pinching myself as write this blog post because I can’t believe I actually stepped out of my comfort zone for a minute and did something completely spontaneous and unplanned! This past week, I flew to the beautiful city of Phoenix, Arizona triggered by a random desire, and drove over 1,000 miles up and down the state, all by myself! I visited Mather Point and Yavapai Point at the Grand Canyon South Rim, watched the sun set over Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona, and off roaded over 15 miles of dirt path in a Cadillac sedan so that I could experience the epicness that is Monument Valley!

There were a ton of other things on my list that I didn’t have time to do, but Arizona hasn’t seen the last of me! Here are just a few shots from my trip:

Portrait: Amanda // Whataburger by Ian Michelman

Have any of you guys seen those really awesome Target photos circling around the internet? It's this newer thing I've been seeing a lot in the photography community and I really love the challenge of trying to make beautiful photos in average and mundane places. As tempting as it was to try the Target photos myself, I decided to do something a little different. So, Amanda and I visited the local Whataburger and did our thing. We got a ton of weird looks, but it was totally worth it!
