I suppose you could say I have a small ‘Bucket List’ of places in Salt Lake City that I want to shoot. They’re nothing super magical really, just little spots I have found or heard about through other photographers that I think would be fun to experience shooting there at least once.
The Bonneville Salt Flats – or as most people call them, simply The Salt Flats – is one of these places. I’m sure at least 50% of the state’s northern population has been here, and about 85% of the area’s professional photographers have shot here. But me? Naw…I grew up in good ol’ SLC and had never even been there. Yeah, I’ve driven past it a few times on my way out to Wendover, but that’s the closest I have ever been.
Yes folks, I can finally check The Salt Flats off of my Bucket List. And I must say, it was as grand as I had always imagined it would be! The Salt Flats are so beautiful and so simple and so….white! It’s a photographer’s dream location really. Or, at least, my dream location. I most definitely hope to shoot there many, many more times!
Annnnd, on to Brooklyn. Is’t she amazingly, flawlessly beautiful?!? I loved shooting her. This was the first time I had ever met Brooklyn and she was picked by my photographer friend Megan who put this whole shoot together. See, Brooklyn is a pretend bride. Just a regular old run of the mill every day Joe like you and me that we turned into a model. (pretty good, right?) But be sure to stay tuned. This creative shoot was so amazing that I had to break my photos up in to four different blog posts – FOUR! We’ll introduce our “groom”, then show off all of the lovely details, and finish with a giant surprise for everyone – even me!
Hats off to Lilac Floral for all this gorgeous flower beauty.
