Utah is unlike any other state and offers a wide variety of landscapes and backdrops. An hour drive to the East will put me in the middle of a forest, a couple of hours Southwest and I am in a beautiful area with rolling sandy desert hills, and then just a few hours South gives me beautiful red rock canyons. One of my favorite locations in Utah for photos is just a little over an hour drive to the West near the Great Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake is the largest salt water lake in the western hemisphere and is home to famous landmarks such as Antelope Island, the Spiral Jetty, and the Great Saltair. The Great Saltair Bridals are some of my favorites.
The Great Saltair offers several different looks all in one location. There is the breathtakingly beautiful Saltair building with its white walls, beautiful architecture, and wall cut outs, the vast Great Salt Lake with a beautiful beach area, and – my favorite- the boundless open sandy areas surrounding the lake.
I was so excited when Jaden and Tayler chose this location for their bridal session! This location accents dresses so well with its minimalistic background and perfectly neutral color palette. Jaden and Tayler each brought a sister with them, and we all had so much fun watching Jaden see Tayler in her dress for the first time. These two were such a dream to work with!
Mandi Rae Bride Tip: It’s so important to work with your photographer to pick out the location that will best accent your dress, not distract or take away from it.
