Engagement Session at Bonneville Salt Flats

March 24, 2022

Marika and Mike wanted a blend of elegance and adventure for their Engagement Session at Bonneville Salt Flats.  Just a two-hour drive from Salt Lake City, this ancient seabed provided a stunning, otherworldly backdrop for their photoshoot. Although not initially planning to ride their bikes on the salt flats, their adventurous spirits took over and they decided to take a spin.


Casual Meets Elegance

The session started with Marika and Mike in casual attire, sharing beers by their car, with mountain bikes nearby, symbols of their journey and shared interests. As the day moved towards sunset, they switched to more formal wear—a gown for her and a suit for him. But while they may have been dressed up, their playful spirits shined through as they danced in the setting sun.
