About Leah Louviere Photography
As a photographer, i have been lucky to snap shots in this picturesque state from the GORGEOUS wasatch mountains to the great salt lake and beyond. Since i am in Davis county, most of these locations are within a 30 mile radius of Layton.
I have taken my years of knowledge of locations and compiled them here so that whether you are a professional photographer or just starting out as a hobby, these spots will hopefully fuel your creative fire!
