Forever and Ever, Amen

Our main reason for our trip up to Utah last weekend was for Dan and Missy's wedding. Dan was a good friend of Brian's growing up, so we really wanted to be there for his wedding. We were invited to attend their sealing in the Salt Lake Temple, which was a beautiful and simple ceremony.

Following the ceremony, they took pictures on the temple grounds. I was not their official photographer, but they were kind enough to allow me to tag along and take some photos. I tried to get some candids to catch the simple moments and reflect their relationship. Their love and affection for one another is very honest and pure, and it was neat to see their interactions and try to record that for them.

That night they had a beautiful reception, which I will put in a separate post since I'm still editing those. Since this is the first wedding I've shot, I would love your feedback. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know in an email or the comments below.

I use Totally Rad Actions with CS3 to get a lot of the effects, but you should be able to tone using a fill layer set to colorize. Email or call me and I'll help... PaperMoonPhotography@gmail.com

You are very talented Amber, keep it up. You can do very well with this. How neat to just follow them around without the pressure of being the "official" photographer. Good Job!!!
