Jolley's Ranch is a year-round favorite. In the spring and summer, the open meadow area is lush and green, backed by rolling emerald mountains. In the winter, it's beautiful dusted with white snow or as a covered winter wonderland. But my favorite might be fall - it has such a beautiful range of colors - yellow, brown, rust, orange, red, and more! You can shoot near the white barn for a more rustic look, or venture into the trees for a close-up of all the color. In the open area, you get an epic backdrop of meadow, colorful trees, and fall-draped mountains!
If you want photos taken at the most magical autumn setting Utah has to offer, this location has it all! Wide blue skies, endless golden aspen groves, and (shhhh!) quiet. It's true Guardsman Pass can be a zoo during peak fall colors, but I have the perfect, secluded spot I can take you to and make all your fall family photos come true! This spot gets the most beautiful, warm, glow-y light, that sets the yellow leaves on fire and imparts the quintessential autumn feel - see photos below for proof ;)
If you're looking for a great location to shoot in at any time of the year, look no further than Tibble Fork Reservoir. Located just a few miles up American Fork Canyon, this location can be accessed year-round. In the spring, it's a great spot to shoot at before everything else greens up because of the evergreens that supply color all year. In the summer, the blue-green waters add a unique element to photos. In the fall, the gorgeous mountain peaks and golden grass screams, "Autumn!" And in the winter, it's quintessential, snow-covered Utah - magical when it's snowing.
Highland Glen Park is such a versatile location - it has great views of the Wasatch Mountains year round, along with darling, tree-covered paths, a riverbed area, wide open spaces, lots of trees, a pond, and more! It's a great location year round, with accessible parking and easy-to-reach photo spots!
It was so fun getting to see the Croft family again! I photographed Alia and Nate's wedding, and 3 of Nate's cousin's weddings, so they feel like family now...we found the prettiest area at Empire Pass and I loved every photo we captured!
Orchards are one of my favorite places to photograph in - they are so versatile! In the spring, they are full of blossoms. In the summer, they are perpetually green and full of life. In the fall, they offer the prettiest symmetrical rows of autumn colors - yellows, oranges, and reds. I was delighted to photograph these families at Burgess Orchard this spring and can't wait to capture many more smiling faces there this fall! It has peach and apple orchards with a great view of the Wasatch mountains, as well as some great rows of pine trees.
