I edited about 150 pictures pretty quickly after their wedding so they could show off and use pictures.
Many of them were the couple pictures.
Now a few months later I’ve finished editing the rest of their pictures. about 350 more
If you wonder what’s in my secondary set of pictures from a wedding here you go

I was so tempted to write a story to go along with every picture.
How I made the picture happen and why I feel it was important to them.
But then I realized… I think the picture will speak for itself.
That’s the hope.
I will say quickly that this was the first full ceremony catholic wedding I’ve ever done.
It was beautiful and the couple and the bridal party were sooo full of energy and personality that it was a perfect fit for my type of photography.
That being a photography of PERSONALITY
My many hundreds of shoots and years of creative problem solving in photography set me up to photograph any type of ceremony no matter that I hadn’t done it before.
Love is love, fun is fun and you can just tell when something special is going on and needs to be documented.
LET’S STEP BACK AND SEE WHAT HAPPENED EARLIER THAT DAY
The story shall be told with pictures alone.

One of the two weddings I did at the San Diego LDS Temple in December
We did beach shots in Ocean Side and the reception was in Orange County at Dana Point.
To see lots lots more go here… there are 150+ uploaded so far
Yes they’re an incredibly good looking couple and that always makes for nice pictures.
I already knew his family really well so it was fun to get to know her family… they were awesome and we got along so well… helps they loved my photography! With several of the sisters being pretty awesome at photography.
I love when I get to shoot without being rushed at sunset… being on the coast is a bonus!
The famous seagul picture
Middle of the day it’s always nice to have a place where you can find some shade.
Yep I’m jumping back and forth between temple pictures and couple pictures at the beach and later that evening.
More family pics
Did I mention they made it to In-n-out that day too!
My big news for 2012
I no longer charge travel costs for a wedding.
One Price: Yep just one price for anywhere in the world.
Because most of my weddings have me traveling far from my home state (Utah) I’ve decided to have one price, it avoids complication, encourages travel to exciting places and makes me unique.
Why? To me it’s not about costs incurred traveling, it’s more it’s me being indisposed for other weddings traveling 2 days… and therefore the price is included.
Because traveling during 2 days is how it always is… ergo the cost will be the same, because everywhere out of Utah has me traveling during 2 extra days.
Besides… I love traveling … and like I said it sets me apart.
I’m proud of the following points: (About Me)
On a budget? Hard to say what this means. Budgets range dramatically … I’ve dealt with all ranges.
It doesn’t hurt to email or call.
If you feel your budget might be a bit low… just be honest and let me know what that budget is. I’ve helped people out that had their heart set on my photography and I’ve also helped connect people to other amazing photographers.
Pricing will vary greatly, so personally, I say you should simply contact me.
Range: Formals start in the $1500 range. On the higher end for example a wedding (anywhere) with 3 Press-printed journalistic 120pg books is about $8400
So you might be somewhere in between that range.
Additional things to consider (All are heavily discounted with wedding purchase)
I’m way easy to get a hold of and I’d like to think pleasant to talk with.

Their reception was at Le Jardin in Sandy Utah
Back to the Temple for a few
They have a strong connection to Apple Pie
I don’t think they have the same strong connection to fries but I thought the picture was cute anyway.
Other people were there too

Here’s showing off some reception pictures from a recent wedding in DC. I am getting around to editing a lot of those wedding pictures so expect posts on a pretty frequent basis coming up.
I really wanna chat about the fun lighting I did to make this outdoor into the night reception work.
Check out the rest of the photos we have online of the wedding reception on the SmugMug Event.
This was right before the reception at the small luncheon… We’ll post the pictures of the wedding at the DC LDS temple tomorrow morning.
It was a very nicely decorated wedding… so much fun and relaxed. It was outside on a big lawn at a church building… really a very picturesque location.
They had a polaroid photobooth of sorts (someone clicking the button)
OK so the lighting got pretty dark towards the end of the evening… specially here when they were cutting the cake.
Had I not had a flash we’d be talking 1/5th of a second at f/1.4 … meaning lots of camera shake and dull colors.
But I had two lightstands I set up… one by the DJ and the other like 20ft from the action 20ft in the air with a sand bag to keep it set.
You can only imagine if I didn’t have flash… meaning you’d have to imagine because the pictures would have never been taken or seen by anyone.
I told them in fact that they’re lucky they had someone there that could handle that lighting condition because this was no ordinary easy situation.
There are other ways than radio controlled speedlights on lightstands set-up to cross light the whole reception… but I just don’t know if Speedlight on top of the camera and dragging the shutter would have cut it. There certainly weren’t any ceilings to bounce off of.
They almost forgot to do their Thank You picture to send to people but we rememberd later on in the evening. I had a couple of guests hold it with the bride and groom a few feet behind in the background. Fast and quick… but we got it.
