Salt Lake City Cents Of Style Portraits




This was my first time at the #centsofstyle wall in near Bountiful, Utah and it was so fun! As a wedding photographer, doing portraits was a little out of my comfort zone since I usually pose couples, but after this shoot I’m so excited to work with more individuals for portrait sessions. Sierra was incredible and made it so easy, and I mean look at her hear… it is stunning! This portrait session was EXACTLY what I needed to get my creativity rolling again. The colors were all stunning, and we were the only ones there. And with an entire wall full of colors, it was so easy to get variety in a small space.

One thing I really enjoyed with this session was playing around with the harsh lighting because IT WAS HOT. Blazing… so much sweat. We had to stop and fan ourselves like every 10 minutes. It was so worth it though to get the chance to play around with shadows and bright colors. One thing I learned, is to never be afraid of harsh lighting! It creates incredible colors, moodiness and pure editorial magic. The second I started editing this session, I knew it was going to be such a fun one.

My favorite moment from this session was fulfilling a crazy idea I had that turned out amazing! I told Sierra I was going to lay on the ground and shoot upwards and honestly, it probably looked like I was taking pictures up her dress, but I promise I wasn’t! Instead it created a beautiful white haze and was so worth looking like a crazy person. Thanks Sierra and #centsofstyle!
