I love finding new places to shoot! As a photographer I always have a list of ideas and locations to shoot in Utah or Salt Lake county that I have done in the past or have been meaning to try out, but it is always awesome when my clients tell me about a place that I have never been to. LJ and Kaylee told me they wanted to take their engagement photos at a location they had heard about in Lehi called the "Da Vinci Doors". I said it sounded like fun, and we set the appt for an early morning session. This location was great! Within the space of two blocks there were 6 or 7 completely different backgrounds and types of walls, an awesome red railroad car, rail road tracks, this vintage red and green store that looked like it was built around the turn of the century, and of course, the doors themselves. Da Vinci Doors is apparently a door and window shop, and they have a lot of examples of their work around their building- which makes for a varied and interesting setting. Best of all? It's just a few miles from my house! :)
We started to shoot just before sunrise, and as this was a weekend, Thomas was able to help out with lighting. Kaylee and LJ were fantastic! As you can see, they are both great looking, and as we began taking pictures and started to relax around each other we began just to joke around and poke fun at each other. I think I laughed pretty much constantly during the entire hour and a half that we were shooting. It was wonderful to see a couple so in love and so happy to just play and have fun with each other. The pictures turned out beautifully, if I do say so myself, with some great candid and serious moments. I look forward to doing Kaylee's bridals and to photographing their wedding!
