They’re getting married this next saturday but when I was down there for a wedding last weekend we got a lot done.
A 8-9hr photoshoot… let’s give props to the groom for holding on for that long… that’s true love!
Here’s a couple from the end of the night but I’ll next show some highlights in chronological order of what and where we went that day.
To see the rest of the images go to the gallery.
We also spent a few hours not in their wedding clothes. I might do another post of them later… but you’ll see them in the gallery above.
This was all done as part of a 9hr workflow hangout video that I did on Google+
These are pictures from the first part of the wedding day while at the San Diego LDS Temple in La Jolla California
This post will focus on the couple and the temple. Later posts I’ll show the candids, the groups and the beach and the reception.
About this set
It was a bright sunny day with nice blue skies.
It was a cool April day. Lighting wasn’t easy but at least it wasn’t raining like the night before and the forecast said might be a possibility.
I got there early and was able to take some pictures of the temple itself… you can see the full gallery of those images here
Often you’re just trying to tap all the photographic wealth of places on the grounds of a beautiful place like Temple Square in Salt Lake City that you don’t often get to travel very far away.
Not that this location is even that far… but it mostly happened because prior to entering into the temple we had a “First Look Session” which was the first time he saw her in her dress.
We did lots of the locations that one would typically do at that point in time so after their ceremony in the temple we were certainly less rushed.
This particular shot happened mainly because we were all parked in the Conference Center parking lot and she wasn’t changing in the temple but going as is.
So I asked if they wanted a few more pictures.
Now there are certainly lots of amazing pictures from the day but this location was probably amongst my favorites because I’d never done it before. I also think it’s very modelesque of them.
And I love the colors… I know most people love warmer colors but this was December – winter time – and it just fits for me.
I’m calling this one a sneak peak because then I’m allowed to do a more in depth post on the pictures later… maybe break them down a bit.
Whereas I want to show off how I shoot, why I take the pictures I do (for both clients and aspiring photographers) this’ll just be a “Look-At-These-Pictures” gallery
Well I said this was gonna be a sneak peak… so maybe I should stop it here… there are lots more
We came back later in the day… Thus no one around.
I think i’ve seen every schedule possible for a wedding day… but I must admit this was the first time I took group pictures and then left for the luncheon and then came back for the couple pictures.
I liked it… a bit less rush.
For those that didn’t hear it last time… Sacramento LDS temple is probably one of my favorite temples to shoot at!
My philosophy on group pictures is: Let them decide, I’ll just make it look good.
I don’t want to put groups into situations they think are gonna be terribly cheesy.
But if they think of it themselves they’re probably good with it.
This way I get new ones each time and if they’re a more traditional group I’m not putting them into some elaborate set up they won’t even appreciate when a straight line is probably all they want.
Sometimes the good ol’ fashion jump is amongst the best… and this is amongst the most entertaining of them… as far as faces go.
