Engagement Session at the Gloss Mountains

Looking for a sweet getaway to the desert? That’s what we did for Kailen & Teyai’s engagement photos!

Only 2.5 hours away from Tulsa is the Gloss Mountain State Park where you can see everything from desert landscapes to succulents on the ground. Originally, our plans for the session were to go somewhere local in Tulsa, but after thinking more about the location, they decided to make it an adventure! Kailen & Teyai are both very outgoing, so from the start, we were all super stoked to be in such a cool place together for their engagement session. Although I was meeting them for the first time, it felt like we already had before. Both Kailen & Teyai have huge hearts for people and each other & it is so evident in every interaction we had. Conversation was easy & I genuinely had so much fun just chatting.

We explored the Gloss Mountains while the sun made its way to the horizon. There were red mountains, a yellow flower fields, and stunning scenery everywhere. Once we made the hike to the top, I kid you not, “Halo” by Beyonce started blaring through my portable speaker, and it couldn’t be more perfect. You could feel the moment in your bones – seeing such an amazing sunset at the top of a mountain while you were surrounded by two incredible people. It felt like we somehow discovered magic in the middle of nowhere. Now, the question I ask myself is – how do I make time go by faster so that I can see these two again on their wedding day?
