Engagements in the Wasatch Mountains

June 14, 2022

Mattie and Logan’s celebrated their engagement in the Wasatch Mountains with a lovely photo shoot. We shot in a variety of locations, ranging from towering rock cliffs to beautiful meadows in the shadow of Mount Olympus. We also decided to shoot in both black and white and color, which gave the photos different feels, even though they were all shot in the same afternoon.

 

Artistic Black and White in Big Cottonwood Canyon

The first part of our session highlighted the majestic scenery of Storm Mountain, a well known spot in the canyon,  in a series of black and white photos. This choice brought a timeless elegance to this series of photos, emphasizing the textures and contrasts of the landscape without the distraction of color.

 

Golden Hour on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail

For a change of scenery and style, we moved to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, west of Granger Peak, with Mount Olympus in the background. Here, the tall golden and green grasses along the trail basked in the golden hour light, creating a warm, vibrant setting for our photoshoot. This location provided stunning vistas of the Wasatch Mountains and Salt Lake City, perfectly capturing the essence of the area.

The dramatic flare of the setting sun behind them, the soft sunlight bathing the majestic mountains, and the serene moments shared on a rugged cliff all contributed to a memorable engagement shoot.
