Location is one of the first thing everyone asks me about. Here's some ideas for locations for your shoot that I love! I'm always open to new places so just let me know if you want to try something different! *Any location fee or parking fee must be paid by the client
2501 Wall Avenue Ogden, UT
Union Station offers a fun and different environment for pictures. There are many doors, trains, cobble streets, and brick walls to pose in front of. There's also train tracks that you can pose on! Main Street is also within walking distance. Not to mention to Ogden LDS Temple is just around the block!
41 South 3200 West, Layton UT
This gorgeous location has tall grass fields, perfect for sunsets, as well as a wooden walkway perfect for small families and seniors! Bug spray is a MUST! Early morning and late evening is perfect for lighting!
This is a perfect city feel location. For group or family sessions it's best to shoot on Sundays to avoid crowds of shoppers. Could be really fun for a senior session! Variety of greenery and clean crisp backgrounds.
Located by Davis High School, Kaysville Utah
This awesome hidden trail in the middle of a neighborhood is so much fun in the fall! All the leaves fall and make for one perfect fall shoot! Also, there's a fun field up behind it that also makes for some great shots!
Located behind Lagoon Amusement Park
This long trail is easy to get to and offers a variety of trees, benches, bridges and so much more! Fun for small families and senior sessions.
Main Street, Bountiful UT
Bountiful is possibly the CUTEST little town! The little stores that line the street make for an adorable backdrop to small family or senior portraits. The street isn't normally busy so it's perfect! Colorful benches and walls add the perfect pop of color to any portrait session!
Main Street, Bountiful UT
On Bountiful Main Street there's a cute greek restaurant. One wall is a super cute blue wall and the other is a nice white wash wall. We have to time it with lighting right, so let me know if you're interested and we'll talk about timing!
This easy to access canyon located in Bountiful is a blast! There's a bridge and a little creek, as well as a variety of trees and trunks to sit on. The fall colors are awesome, as well as in the early spring when the trees are in full bloom! It's not much of a hike, but you can walk higher up for an even better experience!
Salt Lake City
Not only perfect for a Fall Drive, but lots of little camp sites to explore for pictures! I have a particular camp group that I find great with a cute little stream running through it! Perfect for Fall portraits and Spring when the trees are in full bloom.
Salt Lake City
With both the option of the marina (docks and the water for fun reflections) as well as the salt flats, the Great Salt Lake is a fun and diverse location! Not only does the lake allow us to do some awesome reflection shoots, the sunsets are breathtaking! (Don't forget the bug spray!)
350 North Main Street SLC
It's renaissance revival-style building with sweeping staircases and manicured lawns. Polished floors and a special elegant feel is prefect for a "Black-Tie affair" style session! The long staircases are perfect for bridals and a formal session! Nice indoor option when the weather gets cold. Around the outside are these gorgeous paths lines with trees. In early spring they spring into cherry blossoms that are to DIE for! In the fall theres TON of pretty orange leaves. One of my favorite locations.
375 120 E, Salt Lake City, UT
This park, full of grassy areas and trees, also has bridges, benches, stairs, and a greek style pavilion! There is also a trail that allows you the best of both worlds! Very fun, small location.
Main Street & South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT
Temple Square is known for it's beautiful grounds, especially in the spring with all the flowers! My favorite places are right around the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Best to go during the week so there isn't a ton of people walking around.
State Street & South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT
Found on temple square, if there's no events going on you can go behind The Lion House where they have a beautiful patio and garden. To enter go just north of the building on the west side. There's a small staircase and there may be a sign that says it's closed for a private event. As long as there's no event we can go there! Super cute for individual portraits.
Downtown Salt Lake City
The Gateway provides both a city like feel, with grounds and fountains that add a flare to your session! There's also the Union at the Gateway which is a great indoor options for the colder months.
Cottonwood Heights, UT
I love exploring Big Cottonwood Canyon in the Winter! Each year it's so different so be down for adventure! Be sure to dress warm, but cute, and bring hand warmers! I wouldn't recommend this for families in the winter.
State Street and 5109 South (Murray Park LN) Murray, UT
Situated just across from the hospital (IHC) in Murray, this park offers bridges gazebos, and a creek for fun pictures. It's best to avoid on weekends because it tends to draw some crowds.
6351 S. 900 E. Murray, UT
Offers indoor as well as outdoor photo locations. There are little bridges, buildings, wagons and animals, making it fun for kids! Bring some bread to feed the ducks! There is a $10 photography fee, so be prepared to pay that.
Draper, Behind Pepper Wood
After a short, slightly steep, scenic hike you find a small waterfall. Time to take your shoes off and climb in! Fun for just about everything! Best in the late spring and early summer season.
A little overgrown lately, but great when you want the pine tree look without hiking up the canyon! Perfect for families with little ones. Short walk, and usually easier to get to than similar places up the canyon.
1020 East 12400 South, Draper, UT
This easy to find park has several wooden bridges and fences, a couple of creeks, traintracks, and a cute barn! There is also a park to entertain the kids in between shoots. Because of lightening I typically choose to shoot on the abandoned train tracks just east of the park.
900 East 12300 South, Draper, UT
This is a popular location for formal dances! Nice and classy, yet small and simple location. Great for somewhat large groups or small families (shorter sessions). Better in the spring when the plants are in bloom.
Perfect location when you want a beach feel, but remember we live in a desert...haha. There are spots that we can currently avoid houses in the background. The lake also has docks and bridges to explore!
Soda Row, Daybreak UT
Perfect location when you want a mix of city/modern feel as well as the lake look! Soda Row is the cutest little shopping center. Fun for small families and senior portraits!
These typically come in January-February, but it depends on the season. They've been cracking down on photo sessions so if you're interested let me know ahead of time and we'll watch to see what they're doing that year. To see more about the ice castles visit their website here.
A really great place to adventure and explore! The gardens are HUGE! There is a location fee for this venue, but one that is 100% worth it! It's great during early fall or spring!
American Fork Canyon
I've loved this location! However after construction it isn't as great, but still a fun option! Great in the winter because the ground is pretty and white and the green trees pop in the back! Sometimes there's a small fee for each car to enter the canyon, so be prepared for that.
American Fork Canyon
The Alpine loop is a really long road with lots of fun spots to adventure! Part of it does close early in the winter, so be prepared for that. I really like on of the first campground because you can park safely, walk along the paths, and play in the water. Great for portraits or family photos.
851 East 700 North American Fork
Located in Northern Utah County, just west of the Timpanogus LDS Temple, it's not far from most major cities in Utah. It features beautiful park like landscaping, lots of open shade and a stone ampitheatre.
550 North University Ave, Provo UT
This library is a blend between the old historic library and the new library. There's a modern bridge connecting the two. Brick walls, fund doors, and a great lawn make for a great portrait session!
Center Street, Provo UT
Historic Center Street in Provo is lined with cute stores, brick and graffiti walls, and a cute walking path. This is a nice and flexible place for a portrait session if you're looking for an old city type feel.
Provo Center Street
This park is a perfect location for families with small children. It has lots of grass areas with large trees. The best part is the playground and splash pad!
500 W, Center Street Provo
A popular location for trendy/blogger style photos! Kinda hidden, but super cute. There's also a white wash wall next to it. Best for individual portraits, not recommended for families or large groups.
Provo Center Street
At the entrance of the hospital groups the beautiful orchards provide a gorgeous backdrop to family and senior portraits! Most popular for bridals, this location is also a favorite for families and seniors. If you're lucky we may even spot some deer during your session!
Provo Center Street
This beautiful Castle Amphitheater is perfect for formal sessions (and princess portraits ;) ) The Cobblestone steps and towers, fun doors and windows make for a fun and enchanting session! We can never get enough of this location! A $20 photography fee is required, so be prepared to pay that.
