Rain was forecasted for this Utah engagement session. However, as soon as Saedi, Chase and I hit the summit, sunshine flooded the canyon. The lighting was a dreamy mix of harsh light softened just enough by the clearing clouds. I was able to shoot film in addition to digital, and the outcome was a bright and airy gallery I am obsessed with even years later.
My editing styled is true to color, as you can see in my past wedding photos. I prefer to gently enhance the natural beauty of the location. That way, the emphasis is on your and your partner’s relationship. This shoot is a great example of the true greens and blues that look just how they did when I photographed them. That way, when Saedi and Chase look back on these photos they’ll will not only feel more timeless, but they’ll fit with their own memories of this gorgeous day.
This couple met and fell in love just outside this canyon. With spring wildflowers popping up and the majestic Wasatch Mountains in the background, this spot couldn’t have been more perfect. When we arrived, it felt like a scene out of The Sound of Music.
I have photographed engagement photos in places with many different vibes. Such as a formal shoot in downtown LA, or casual date night at a San Diego beach. Saedi and Chase chose a unique twist for their session – semiformal outfits in an outdoor location like this. As always, engagement photos should feel true to you. For this couple, they love dressing up. And they also wanted to capture memories at a nearby place they had taken so many romantic drives to before.
