The 9 Best Engagement Photographers in Salt Lake City

There are so many gorgeous places in Utah to have your engagement portraits taken. And if the following Instagram feeds are any indication, quite a few talented Salt Lake City engagement photographers are in the know about some of the state’s most photogenic spots. Let them capture pictures of you and your love, highlighting the connection you share for each other. You’ll treasure the end results for years to come. 

1. Kylielin Photography

Kylie is one of our favorite Salt Lake City engagement photographers, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention her other photography as well. Her wedding portfolio fully showcases her talent — shot in so many kinds of lighting that it marks her as an expert. Her lifestyle shoots have the same emotional and cool vibe as the rest of her portfolio. She doesn’t shy away from color and thrives during outdoor sessions. After all, the landscapes around SLC are something special!

When you work with Kylie, you will probably end up with a new friend as well as a whole bunch of treasured mementos. According to Kylie, “I love to make people confident for who they are and I love the social aspect of photography! I have met so many different people and have created strong friendships through photography; I can’t wait to create even more friendships and meet more people!” That’s our kind of photographer!

2. Sayde Delayne Photography

Sayde Delayne is a brilliant photographer with a case of wanderlust, giving a cultural flair to her couples shoots. Few things are more beautiful than you and your love having an epic adventure and having those memories captured along the way by Sayde. She is the kind of photographer who loves adventuring with clients. This is no surprise, as her list of things that make her incredibly happy include “hiking… traveling to new places. Oh, and of course capturing raw, emotional, genuine moments on my camera.”

Her editing is modern — with a neutral coloring that adds a vintage feel and a sense of timelessness. She is based just outside of Salt Lake City, in Layton, but her love of travel means that she’s willing to venture anywhere in — or even outside of — the state, so check out her work even if you’re not SLC-based!

When you're in love and your sweetheart is your safe place and you just feel like you are home…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Planning a wedding can be so hectic and stressful, so make sure that you take time to relax. And don't forget to enjoy the best moments of wedding planning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Engagements: enjoy that time that you and your love one get to just be together. Take a moment. Breathe. Relax in each other's arms. Kiss her on the forehead. Play with his beard. Smile at each other. Think about why you fell in love with them. Think about the funny things they do. Hug them tight. Take the time for each other in all the chaos to just be you two together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Registering: have fun picking out fun things that will make up your house together. Dream together. Pick out that deep fryer for him. Pick out that fancy mixer for her. Pick out the comfy bedding package for you both. Find things that make each other happy. ( Just don't go scan happy or you have to remove those things later , like the Woodland Birds Cuckoo Clock that goes off every 30 minutes, unless that's your thing.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding pictures: Enjoy these moments. The emotions. Whether it's before or after you have been married, hold onto them. If its after. Relax. All that matters in these moments are you two. If its before, think about how your love makes you feel. Think about how they make you smile. Think about how with that person, you can face anything the world has to throw at you. And then relax. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stuffing Invitations: I know, I know, this is one of the stressful parts, right? Well not all of it has to be. Once you get a system down, listen to your wedding playlist. Watch one of your favorite shows or movie together. Take turns licking envelopes, stop licking the envelopes and go get the peel sealing envelopes together for a break. Do it together. If you work together on everything, work as a team, and do everything together- you can face anything together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What else can you do to relax during the crazy wedding planning?

A lifelong love affair with photography has led Melissa down her path of becoming one of the best Salt Lake City engagement photographers. She has multiple specialties, including wedding and family photography, so if you adore her style like we do, hire her to be by your side to photograph all of your milestones as a couple and family. She wants every couple to be themselves, as she enjoys — in her own words — “captur[ing] those real moments. Showing who you both really are together.”

Minimal and therefore timeless best describe her editing technique — to her, photographs are meant to be real and natural. According to Melissa, “When looking back at old pictures, it’s not about the style the photo was edited in, it’s about that moment in time and being able to clearly see that. Having beautiful timeless pictures no matter what day or age.” If you want keepsakes that will look good for generations to come, review Melissa’s work — she may be just what you are looking for.

Throughout engagements, bridals and the wedding day I strive to make sure everything is captured in a perfectly unique way.”

According to Jacquie Erickson, “I’m the photographer for the bright-eyed girl next door, the spunky, refined, and full of faith. My couples are kind, fun, and totally in love!” And we couldn’t agree more.
