Spring Sundance Engagement Session with Chelsea & Austin

by Utah Wedding Photographers JamesErickPhotographyUtah

The Sundance Engagement Session with Chelsea & Austin was shot at a secrete location at Sundance that very few people know about, and I would like to keep it that way. To many times I blog places that I shoot at only to find lots of photographers end up going to the same places soon thereafter.

Lately the weather has been unpredictable. We have had days where it is 80 degrees, and a day later we had snow and 40 degrees, then a few days later pouring ran and 60 degrees. Such is the weather in Utah in April, and sometimes May. But today it was a perfect day at Sundance, with perfect weather and lighting, and it did not hurt that I had a great couple to shoot that was ready for an adventure! Chelsea & Austin are two of the nicest down to earth people you will ever meet. When I told them about a secret location at Sundance that I wanted to take them to, but would require a hike, they were all in. They are avid hikers and wanted to go to an outdoor location with great views and pine trees.

I found the secret location last year during the winter time when i followed a deer trail in the snow between some bushes and found an amazingly beautiful area with tall pine trees and mountain views. When I found it I could not wait until spring to be able to photograph a couple there. And unlike other places I have photographed with pine trees and mountain views in the background, there was not a single other person there.

For Chelsea & Austin's bride & groom pictures, I am even more excited. They have agreed to go to another secret location in American fork canyon to a pristine alpine lake very few people ever go to because its an hour hike at the least up the side of a mountain. And I promise you nobody has ever been there for a bride & groom session, so stay tuned.
