Marcus + Jess Anniversary Session at the Bonneville Salt Flats!


What better way to celebrate your anniversary then to get all dressed up, pop a bottle of champagne, and run around this wild place in the middle of no where Utah!


We headed out to the Salt Flat with this beautiful bouquet in hand by the amazing Alexa from Lilly and Iris - The weather was a little iffy this day and on the 1.5 hr drive from Salt Lake City it was even snowing. Right when we arrived the clouds seemed to part and even though we all froze our butts off (especially Jess .. sorry JESS!) there was magical layer of water making for a even more magical reflection on the ground!
