The Alta Lodge is an all-time favorite venue of mine to photograph in. Rustic mountain vibes meets mid-mod design meets unparalleled hospitality. Oh, and the views. My god the views! Alta Lodge is not short epic scenery and charm, that is for certain. So it is an ideal location for a wedding.
Lauren and Rob are an adventurous couple, and much of their courtship involved travelling and outdoors recreation. My type of people! In fact, years ago, I worked with Lauren at Backcountry.com. If she was like me, she probably spent most of her money on gear. Anywho, as avid mountain folk, Alta checked all the boxes for them.
One of the wonderful things about how easy it is to get to such epic wedding venues as in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyon, is that it becomes an easy destination wedding. Lauren and Rob’s family shipped in from Pennsylvania and Ohio and their world-travelling friends came from myriad spots for a celebration of love for the books.
