We spent the morning taking portraits at the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, which is a fantastic place to photograph. Interestingly enough, the non-desert portions of the park are far more useful photographically than the areas with cacti and such. There are some areas with old tree growth, and that makes for great internal framing.
The wedding was held at the LDS Temple in Mesa Arizona, which I see quite often, so I am always looking to photograph it from a new angle or in an different way. I like what I did with the temple this time around.
Hanging the dress out in the breezeway is a bit risky as the dress seldom wants to stay on the hanger. So Rex (my assistant) is off frame right ready to grab the dress should it choose to fall off the hanger.
The pure joy a young girl feels at catching those flowers can not be overstated. I love the contrast of this moment between the little girl and the little boy. So perfect.
This is one of the more interesting guest sign ins I have seen at a wedding. A lot of people use their engagement images to make a guest sign in book, which is a nice thing to do, I love to see couples put some thought into the gust sign in and do something a little different and create something unique. I really enjoyed this gust sign in idea.
