Kaki and Fua met through mutual friends and were married a year later. Kaki is my sister-in-law, and I was so happy when she asked me to take their engagement photos! Fua grew up in Salt Lake, and that is where he and Kaki met, so we knew we wanted to do their session near there.
As a wedding photographer based in both Park City Utah and Southern California, I love getting to explore both mountain and beach spots for photoshoots. No matter how many stunning California spots I get to photograph, I will never get tired of what Utah has to offer.
For their engagement photos, Kaki and Fua wanted a spot with wildflowers and open fields. We choose Ensign Peak because it has both, plus a great view of the valley. The flowers were in full bloom during this spring engagement session. And we were lucky to have the whole area to ourselves!That can be rare for most popular Salt Lake engagement photo spots, which you can read about below. Keep reading for some of my favorite local spots as a Utah wedding photographer.
Utah is full of engagement photo spots with a great variety of landscape in one area. Whether you want mountains, meadows, lakes, fields, or urban spots as the background of your photos – Salt Lake City has a photo op for you!
Consider what landscape will best compliment your wedding day. As you will likely have your engagement photos on display during your reception, I recommend making them cohesive with the rest of your decor in style and color.
