Kim and Chris’ Salt Lake Temple Wedding & Joseph Smith Memorial Building Wedding Reception, Utah Wedding Photographer

Have I mentioned I love photographing getting ready shots? I’m pretty sure I have. I love documenting the fun details that come along with the getting ready moments and all the raw emotion that takes place right before a wedding ceremony. Some LDS brides think they’re wedding coverage starts after their ceremony, but that leaves out the beautiful story that happens before. Kim had me come to her mother’s house as she had her hair and make up done. Right before their ceremony I helped them coordinate a first look shot to capture the couple seeing each other all dressed up and ready to get married. These first moments usually happen in the temple but for obvious reasons, I’m not able to photograph them. I love helping the couple preserve these memories and then have them walk hand-in-hand and head for the temple doors to be sealed for time and all eternity. They had a beautiful reception at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and lots of dancing!!! What a beautiful night!
