BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, UTAH
Fall comes early at Jordan Pines, being that it is at a higher elevation. If you want some fall color, opt for pictures either in late September or the early December to capture that color before its gone. But honestly, this location is stunning any time of the year.
During the winter, photography at Jordan Pines is still beautiful, delivering pictures with snow-covered pines and mountain peaks. Be aware that boots will most likely be necessary during the winter months so that we can trudge a bit off the beaten path.
Easy to find and plenty of parking makes this spot perfect for your next photo session. Whether you are planning bridal photography with just the bride, or with both the bride and groom, family photography, senior photography or even photography of your children, photography at Jordan Pines is a perfect location.
Dogs are not allowed at Jordan Pines, as this is a watershed area. Please leave them at home. Also, for shoots in the evening, bug spray and a light jacket may be necessary, so plan accordingly. Also keep in mind that there is a $30 travel fee to shoot here, but don’t let that dissuade you. The photography at Jordan Pines will be well worth it!
