#1 Look through my Location guide!

I have compiled a list of locations for YOU (so that you don’t have to do the hard work) that I know you will love that I have experience with. These included locations can be used for engagement sessions, bridal sessions, AND anniversary sessions! Another super fun option that I ALWAYS love, is going to a location that is special to you as a couple.

#2 Keep the season in mind

As much as I wish that we could have gorgeous wildflower blooms all year round- Utah does not want to cooperate. The scenery changes so much here! For example, Albion Basin THRIVES in late spring, but you won’t get its trademarked gorgeous rolling green hills in winter. Now don’t get me wrong, that doesn’t mean we can’t shoot there! I’m just saying that locations change so much and I don’t want you to be disappointed if its covered in a beautiful blanket of snow!

#3 Think about your wedding theme or vision

If you are planning on using your engagement session pictures for wedding invitations or save the dates (we love to see it), this is especially important. If you’re having an elopement on the Sunny Coast of California and your colors are blue and gold, we should probably avoid going to a vibrant red barn. A much better fit for your vision would be the Salt Flats or the Utah Capitol Building!

#4 Have a date night at the location!

If you are stuck on two locations, Go visit them!! Take your lover for a picnic or some realllly good food nearby!! My past couples who have done this, LOVED it and said it made the engagement session even more special for them because now they have another important memory tied to it.

#5 Your availability matters!

I will always always always advocate for an early morning session or a session just before sunset. This is because good lighting is what makes great images! If you aren’t available for an early morning or sunset session, pick a location up the American Fork Canyon. It has tons of canopy to shade the sun and diffuse the light to make softer looking skin!

#6 Ask me questions!!

I am here for you and I want to hear from you. I know that not everyone has the opportunity or time to drive around all day looking for Utah Photography Session Locations but its part of my amazing job!
