is by far my most requested location to shoot at. I'm sure its also on the top of other photographers lists too, which is why its usually always crowded. In the summer it takes a LOT of photoshop work to remove all the people who are playing in the lake. In the winter, its a lot of sledders and ice fishers! Its so beautiful though.
It takes about 15 minutes to get to this location from the base of American Fork canyon
. There is a $6 entrance fee per car. You can park in the parking lot, and from there walk to each spot. There are tons of locations to shoot at here, so even when its crowded, you can find places to go. On one side of the lake there are tall trees that give a woodsy, forest look. On the other side you have pretty mountain and lake views. There is a field, and fence. You can also do some down by the water or further up the road there is just field and views of mountains without the lake and without the people! There is also a spot with birch trees. Literally everything you could ever want is at this location! In the winter, however, the locations are much more limited since there are piles of snow, its slippery and sometimes muddy.
Rachel + Colin came to see me all the way from Maryland. I feel to honored for my couples who travel to Utah
for pictures and choose ME of all the photographers here. It is seriously such a compliment. These were technically their engagement pictures
! I loved that Rachel went with an amazing, flowy, white dress for this. I titled this for bridal photography
just for those who are looking for bridal type shots, I thought this would fit better for what they are looking for.
Rachel + Colin were only in town for a certain amount of days, so I felt so lucky that the weather was just absolutely perfect. It was FREEZING though. There was a wind chill that honestly was like none other I have felt. I felt so bad for Rachel. She made it though it though by keeping hand warmers down the front of her dress and a winter coat nearby.
