Well Hello! This is Elise, Kim’s office assistant and associate wedding photographer blogging! I am so excited to be able to blog and show you all this wonderful wedding I was able to be apart of! Sam and Emily were married in the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple. Weddings at the temple are definitely close to my heart – my husband and I were married there last year, so I instantly clicked with this sweet couple. An LDS wedding is a little different than a typical wedding we photograph, in that they do portraits about a week before the wedding around the temple; So, a week or so before the wedding, we went to the Temple and took some gorgeous portraits of these two. They were so willing to do anything I asked them to do, and definitely easy to photograph! LDS weddings also don’t allow photographers to photograph the actual ceremony, so normally we capture the couple coming out of the temple and then head off to photograph their reception. I loved Emily and Sam’s simple backyard reception. While I love over-the-top, fancy weddings, there’s something so refreshing about a simple wedding with lot of cute details! Yummy food, a lemonade stand, and an ice cream bar definitely kept all the guests happy and gave the entire reception a very relaxed feeling through the whole evening.
Sam and Emily, thank you for allowing me to be apart of such a wonderful day – congratulations!!
