I don’t think ya’ll are ready for this Petit Jean couples session. Taking a first glance at these images, those of us who live in Shreveport, LA are thinking. “Is that really not that far from us?” With a 4 hour drive north up into the beautiful mountains of Arkansas, it truly is as beautiful as it photographs. All you need is a little bit of patience and an adventurous outlook to get to Petit Jean State Park. I will add the disclaimer that there was absolutely no hike to get to this view. There is paved parking and wah-lah, you’ve arrived!
Petit Jean State Park is an Arkansas classic, a natural and historic treasure that has welcomed travelers for decades. The natural beauty and ancient geology of the legendary Petit Jean Mountain inspired the creation of Arkansas’s first state park. Every photographer in the south has to make a trip to come to shoot here.
Haylea and Justin are the kind of people that you can sit down with and talk for hours and hours without realizing it. Getting to know them to tell their story was such an amazing opportunity. I loved shooting this Petit Jean couples session and I can’t wait to come back.
