Big Cottonwood Canyon is one of my favorite locations for an engagement session. Located near Salt Lake City, Utah, it’s an awesome location for year-round photos. I love this location for many reasons:

  1. It’s accessible. You can drive right to this gorgeous spot, located just 10 minutes from the base of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
  2. There are multiple great (albeit amazing) views of mountains and rocks.
  3. It’s not crowded like other locations in the canyon making it the perfect spot for for an engagement session.

Noelia and Mikey wanted snowy photos done so I knew Big Cottonwood Canyon would be the perfect spot for their engagement session. These two were down for literally anything including a snowball fight, wearing my snowshoes for a few photos, and Noelia climbing on Mikey’s shoulders 🙂 I love when couples trust my vision for a fun, relaxed, and unique photos!

Noelia climbed up onto Mikey’s shoulder for a few photos for their engagement session in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

I absolutely love using this cool prism that I bought last year to add a little something-something to photos.

When choosing what to wear for your engagement session in the snow, I think that warm, neutral (grays, beiges, blacks, greens, browns, etc), and bright colors work the best like what they wore for their day. To stay warm, I brought them some Hot Hands to warm their hands in between photos and Noelia wore her coat 🙂

I brought the snowshoes that my husband bought me for Christmas to their session to see if they wanted to put them on for a few shots and they agreed! It was their first time ever wearing snowshoes and they loved it.
