Utah Spring Family Photos
SLC Cherry Blossoms

The Utah State Capitol blossoms bloom sometime in Early to Mid-April. The exact date is always different, but its usually the first couple of days of April and lasts a few weeks into mid April, depending on the weather. The blossoms are easy to get to, you just park on the road and walk up to the Capitol Building. The walkway around is a dirt/gravel road lined with beautiful trees. This location is really popular during the blossoms and there are usually a lot of people here. This location also looks amazing in fall!

Spring Family Pictures in the SLC Cherry Blossoms

Getting family pictures taken with the cherry blossoms at the Utah State Capitol Building in Salt Lake City is a wonderful idea! Here are some tips to ensure you have a memorable and successful photoshoot:

  • Timing is Key: Cherry blossoms have a short blooming season, usually in the spring. As your family photographer, I can schedule your family pictures during the peak blooming period for cherry blossoms in Salt Lake City, Utah. No need to stress about knowing when they will be their fullest and most vibrant.

  • Plan Ahead: Schedule your family photoshoot well in advance to secure a time slot with me. Consider weekday mornings or evenings for fewer crowds and better lighting conditions.

  • Coordinate Outfits: Choose outfits that complement each other and the surroundings. Soft pastel colors or neutrals often work well with the delicate pink hues of cherry blossoms. Avoid busy patterns or overly bright colors that may distract from the natural beauty of the blossoms. When you book me as your family photographer, I send you my outfit guide, full of tons of outfit combs to look through.

  • Be Flexible: Weather can be unpredictable, especially in the spring. Be prepared to reschedule your spring family photoshoot if the weather forecast is unfavorable. Cloudy days can actually provide soft, diffused lighting that's flattering for outdoor portraits.

  • Relax and Have Fun: Family photoshoots should be enjoyable and stress-free. I'll encourage natural interactions and genuine smiles among family members to capture authentic moments that reflect your family's unique dynamics.

  • Respect the Environment: Be mindful of the surroundings and avoid damaging the cherry blossoms or any other vegetation. Stay on designated paths and be respectful of other visitors to the Capitol Building.

  • Preserve Memories: Once you receive the final edited photos from me, consider printing and framing your favorites to display in your home or create a family photo album to cherish for years to come.

By following these tips and planning ahead, you can have a successful and memorable spring family photoshoot surrounded by the beautiful cherry blossoms at the Utah State Capitol Building in Salt Lake City.
