For Sierra and Alex’s Las Vegas engagement photos, we headed to the Amargosa Sand Dunes. These sand dunes are close to a two-hour drive north of Las Vegas and I tagged along with my friend Amber Garrett for this session!
The first time I saw the Amargosa Sand Dunes I was seriously in awe! They look right out of a movie scene! Getting to the dunes is a bit of an off-road adventure, so I highly recommend going out there with an AWD or 4-wheel drive vehicle. Once you get out to the dunes, you do have to walk a bit to get to the good spots. Be sure to bring shoes you don’t mind getting sand in and stay hydrated by packing plenty of water!
Sierra and Alex went with edgy, black engagement session outfits. I loved how the black looked with the sand dunes as the backdrop, especially in their black dress and suit combo!
The Amargosa Sand Dunes are part of the Big Dune Recreation Area and are a popular location for local lovers of off-roading! If you’re looking for a unique location for Las Vegas engagement photos, then the Amargosa Sand Dunes is a place to consider!
One of my other favorite sand dune locations is the Mesquite Sand Dunes in Death Valley California. You actually take the same road as the Amargosa Sand Dunes but travel about an hour more and cross over into California. Aside from the sand dunes, Death Valley has several different locations that I mentioned in this blog post on engagement photos at Badwater Basin in Death Valley!
The Mesquite Sands Dunes are easily accessible. There’s a parking lot nearby and you don’t have to walk very far out into the dunes for a good view. Of course the further out you go, the view gets even better. Whatever level of adventure you’re up for with sand dune engagement photos, there are options near Las Vegas!
