20 Beautiful Payson Utah Temple Pictures

Environment shot showing three photos of the Payson Utah Temple.

The Payson LDS Temple is a shining testament to the sacrifices and bravery of the original settlers. When a prophet God sent instructions to settle the land, their faith motivated them to face the unknown in creating a prosperous community.

A portion of the dedicatory prayer reads:

“We are thankful for those who laid the foundations of this and other nearby communities. Now their posterity enjoy the sweet fruits of their efforts, and crowning all is this magnificent and beautiful temple...We thank Thee for those who have provided the land, who have worked in the planning and construction, who have served in any capacity whatever to bring this undertaking to this day of consecration.” 

Dedicated on June 7, 2015 the Payson Utah Temple is one of the more recent LDS temples to reach completion, though many more are already in stages of construction. We hope you enjoy these heartfelt photos by our professional photographers and artists, celebrating the rich heritage the early settlers of Payson Utah have left for future generations.

Payson Utah Temple Pictures In the Spring

Springtime photos are our largest selection of Payson Temple pictures. With the lush green grass, beautiful sunrises, and bursting flowerbeds it makes sense that this time of year has become a favorite subject of our artists and photographers. 

We love LDS temple photos taken during the spring. They immediately present a message of hope and new beginnings, two things that this sacred building itself stands for. The sacred covenants, or promises, that we make with God inspire us to improve ourselves. They remind us of our true identity as children of God and teach of the worth and potential of every member of the human family. 

In short, these special promises give us hope in a better world. And that’s exactly what spring suggests every year with its fading cold and budding flowers.

We love the contrast between dark and light in this photo. It isn’t stark or extreme, just enough to catch the eye. And just enough to emphasize the light–both physical and spiritual–that emanates from this sacred, dedicated building.

Payson Temple by Abigale Palmer

Although Utah has a lot of desert landscape, the temple grounds are always bursting with color and life. Abigale captures that perfectly in her painting with the greens and violets of full bushes embracing the foot of the temple.

Payson Utah Temple Pictures in the Summer

The Payson Utah Temple grounds are absolutely gorgeous during the summer months. The flowerbeds are in full bloom, the grass is green and thick, and the surrounding fields are full of potential crops. 

LDS Temples will always be symbols of peace, but during the summer they are especially relaxing. Sunlight filters through the glass windows and doors. With school out, it becomes easier to schedule family trips to visit the temple together and people generally tend to feel more happy during the more sunshiney part of the year. 

These next photos and paintings reflect the clear skies and refreshing weather of the Payson LDS Temple during the summer.

Payson Temple by Anne Bradham

This detailed watercolor by Anne is a beautiful tribute to this beloved temple. Of the scene, the artist said: “The color, design, and spirit were so calming and captivating to me. I sat on the curb right across the street, in front of a house, just staring in awe. I felt such peace and beauty.”

Evening is the perfect time for reflection. The day begins to wind down. The lights begin to dim. And the mind becomes free from the day’s demands. We love the calm peace conveyed in this photo.

Payson Utah Temple Pictures in the Fall

Autumn photos are always gorgeous with that warm mix of reds, oranges, and browns. LDS Temple photos in the fall are no different. While our collection of autumn photos is still growing, we love these images  by four of our talented artists. 

In many ways, the temple teaches us about the law of the harvest. We learn that perfection does not come immediately. Rather, we are meant to learn and grow from the experiences we have along the way and, with time, God has promised we will reap the fruit of our efforts.

These last two photos have a winter tone to them with the photographer’s focus on wintery colors. The blues, whites, and silvers create a calming mood, perfect for accenting any living space.

There is a nice cohesion of cool blues and whites in this picture of the Payson Temple. The mountains match the clouds and the temple matches the sky. Trimmed with the soft glow from the illuminated temple grounds, the overall effect of the image is soothing.
