While Hallie was visiting Utah during summer break (disclaimer: Hallie is my niece), she asked if I would do her senior photos. As a hopeful future BYU student, she thought it would be fun to do her photos in Provo, so we scouted out a couple locations.

We started off at a tiny park on the east side of University Avenue across from some of the old buildings in downtown Provo where we took a few shots before we moved on to a particularly cool brick wall on W Center Street and N 100 W next to the little Marley’s restaurant. It had a really old and worn look to it that was really fun, and I always love symmetry in portraits like columns and brick lines.

We then went next door to the parking garage (because parking garages are always a great place to do photos) and went to the top level where we could look over all of downtown Provo.

By this time, it was starting to get a little dark, which was exactly what I wanted because the lights started turning on along Center Street in Provo, so we walked along the street and found some perfect places to get bokeh shots. My particular favorite was taken in front of the Nuskin building with multiple colors of lights behind her.

The next evening, we went over to the state mental hospital in southeast Provo which is home to The Castle Amphitheater, a pretty amazing place that really does look like a castle. There was some modern rendition of a Shakespeare play going on that evening, so we worked around that, but it was a pretty magical place to do photos anyway.
