Photography Location Guide

Yay! I’m so excited to be working with you! 

There are so many choices when it comes to locations…I’ve included my favorites below!

NOTES:

When applicable, travel fees will be added to the invoice.

For 1 hour photo sessions, in the mountains we will start shooting 2 hours before sunset. All other locations start 1 hour before sunset. 

Make sure you bring a jacket and shoes you can walk in (through snow or rocks).

MOUNTAINS

ASPEN GROVE #1

Provo

Easy parking – Bathroom – Pay to Enter Park ($10)

Mountain views, rich greens in summer. Variety of backgrounds within the one parking location.

ASPEN GROVE #2

Jordan Pines

Big Cottonwood Canyon, Salt Lake City

Easy parking – Bathroom – Travel fee ($50)

Mountain views, rich greens in summer. 5 minute hike to get to my favorite spots.

Amazing during the green months. During winter this location has a lot of dead, brown trees, whereas Tibble Fork is always green, even in snow.

TIBBLE FORK

American Fork

Easy parkin – Bathroom

Mountain views, rich greens in summer.

In snow seasons there is usually still some green from the evergreen trees.

WEATHER: In the winter the weather can be quite unpredictable. The weather conditions are usually twice as intense at this location as they are in Cedar Hills. Winter sessions here should have a backup plan in case it’s too cold or too snowy to shoot.

NOTE: I loose cell reception as soon as I enter the canyon (about 25 minutes before the photo shoot starts). I will meet you in front of the bathroom at the beginning of the parking lot. 

DIRECTIONS: For some reason Google maps won’t take you through American Fork Canyon (it will have you drive around through Heber. That adds hours). Never fear…that road is open, and it only takes 25min to drive through in good weather! I’ve never seen the road to Tibble Fork close down, even in the winter.  You can put this location at the mouth of the canyon into Google maps and then follow the map I’ve drawn below.  Drive straight into the canyon, take the left at the fork and continue to drive into the parking lot. See you there!

RED LEDGES 

Springville Canyon

Easy parking – Bathroom – Travel fee ($50)

Good at every time of the year because we focus on the red rocks, not greenery.

FIELDS / OPEN SKY

BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS

Salt Lake City

Easy parking – Bathroom – Travel fee ($250)

Amazing sunset photos. Very windy. Long drive.

Cool tones – blues and purples.

NOTE: Lots of walking. Bring walking shoes. The salt does wash out of clothing and shoes, but fancy fabrics (like suede) might not wash perfectly.

This location is dry or wet depending on the season. Every season is gorgeous.

GREAT SALTAIR

Salt Lake City

Easy parking – Travel Fee ($50)

NOTE: Lots of walking. Bring walking shoes. The salt does wash out of clothing and shoes, but fancy fabrics (like suede) might not wash perfectly.

This is a great option if you like the look of the Salt Flats but don’t want to ​drive for hours or pay the bigger travel fee.

The biggest differences between the Saltair and the Salt Flats:
1 – The Saltair sand is patchy. The Salt Flats are white and clean.
2 – The Saltair is the beach of the Great Salt Lake. We can jump in the water!

This location is dry or wet depending on the season. Every season is gorgeous.

(This example photo shoot was taken during a storm, so everything was soft. Many of the colors you see in the Salt Flats gallery above can be achieved at the Saltair, just depending on the lighting.)

SAND DUNES

Nephi, UT

Easy parking – Travel fee ($150) – Pay to enter park

Amazing sunset photos. Very windy. These photos were taken in November.

Warm tones with blue sky
