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.

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.

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.
