Utah Wedding Photographer | Lindsey Black | Urban Engagement Session
Hello! I am so excited to be a guest blogger on Basic Invite today and so honored to be featured! My name is Lindsey Black and I am an award-winning Utah wedding photographer based out of Salt Lake City. I specialize in fine art photography for chic, sophisticated weddings with a classic flair and am available for travel worldwide!
One of my absolute favorite sessions to date has to be this urban engagement session we did with Sara and Carl in downtown Salt Lake City. Everything was perfect. Sara and Carl were beautifully styled, from her little black dress to his shiny two-toned shoes. Sara and Carl met while both were moonlighting as bartenders, so they wanted their engagements to reflect their love of Salt Lake City nightlife. We decided to go for a date night out theme for the shoot.
We chose two different parts of SLC to use as our backdrop. Our first stop was the hip Ninth and Ninth neighborhood. From chic boutiques to eclectic restaurants, this funky neighborhood is where Sara and Carl have made their home, so of course, we had to incorporate it! Tree-lined streets and street lamps made for a incredibly romantic atmosphere.
We then moved on to Main Street in downtown Salt Lake. We did some fun shots along the light rail (Trax) line then moved uptown to the amazing City Creek Center where Sara and Carl laughed, danced, and ultimately, just were themselves.
Why it's My Favorite
There are so many things about this shoot that make it stand out as one of my favorites. Really, though, it comes down to the people. Sara and Carl are so in love, so comfortable with each other, that it made it easy to photograph them. I think they forgot I was there a few times. I love to capture couples who are oh so right for one another, and these two fit the bill. It's one of the things I absolutely love about being a Utah wedding photographer. Being an observer in real-life love stories.
