Madison and Richard | Engagements | Utah Wedding Photography

I took Madi and Richie into the mountains behind my house and found the perfect place to capture engagement photos. The Alpine loop is a picturesque backdrop anytime of year, but especially so in the fall. If you’re not from around Utah County, next time you’re in the state, make sure to drop American Fork Canyon. It has one of the most beautiful scenic drives that loops around to Sundance. There are hundreds of places to capture great portraits and scenic images. But be careful because the road climbs along the steep mountainside and there is limited parking.

I first met Madi years ago when I was hired to take her family’s portraits. Madi’s mom (the fantastic Nicole Giles) is a friend of mine and a fellow author of young adult novels. You can check out her books HERE and HERE.

I’ve found that Madi is just as lovely and talented as her mother. I love this outdoors, woodsy engagement shoot. I used to think summer was my favorite season, but lately I’ve really been digging fall. The earthy scents and crisp leaves littered across the forest floor remind me of something Henry David Thoreau would write about. And then of course, I love all the cute boot styles that come out in fall;) But hey, I’m a shoe girl.
What’s your favorite part about fall?
