I shot this wedding back in July, i'm kinda posting these backwards. Sorry.
I got a call a few weeks before from the bride's aunt. Apparently, the friend of a bride i had worked with earlier went to church with the aunt and referred me.
Although we had originally intended to leave on vacation the day of the wedding, since i would only be shooting the wedding it seemed like a good way to make some gas money for our vacation.
Obviously, i enjoy shooting weddings too, the gas money and money alone are never much of a reason to shoot a wedding.
Don't get me wrong though, i'm not doing them for free. There's a little too much stress and work for that.
This was also the first wedding i rode my motorcycle to. Instead of Alan J Photo, i should have named it MotoPhoto, or PhotoMoto. No?
Anyway, Amber and Lona were very easygoing and fun to work with.
This was also my first wedding at a temple other than Salt Lake.
Fortunately, my youngest sister, Alysia, got married at the Mount Timpanogus Temple only a few months earlier. So i borrowed her wedding album for some ideas. Plus i followed her photographers around the day of her wedding.
If you haven't noticed yet, i love eyes. Or perhaps better said, i love to photograph eyes.
Not only are eyes beautiful structures, but they speak volumes. So much passion and emotion can be conveyed by a person's eyes.
