Blaire + Jaylen | Mesa Arizona Temple Wedding Photographer

It was so much fun to be with these two on their wedding day and especially a few days before when we did some of their wedding portrait work.

I made a little slideshow of the first set of images that we took together at the temple. Something I have been wanting to do for a while was to stage the "first look" and capture the moment in image. Jaylen arrived at the temple a few minutes early and was hanging out with me on some of the steps on the East side. Once Blaire arrived I coordinated her approach with her mom by cell phone and the following video is what happened. I hope you like:

And some of my favorite images from their wedding:

The reception was great, and among the many decorations and special touches was this table covered with pink and green candies to match the wedding colors.
I don't know how a blog post about Blaire and Jaylen's wedding would be complete without showcasing their cake:

All of the gorgeous flowers were from-

Thanks guys for allowing me to photograph your incredible wedding day!

  9. I have realized that іn old digitаl сameras, unique
    receptorѕ help to conсеntrate automatically.
    Τhose kind of ѕеnѕοrs of some digital cameras сhange in contrast, whіle οthers start using
    a beаm with infra-red (ΙR) lіght,
    spеcificallу in loω lumination.
    Highеr sρec cаmeras often use а combinatiоn of both systems and prοbablу have Face Pгioгіty AF where thе cаmеra can 'See'
    some sοrt of fаce аnd fοcuѕ only on that.

    Thank you foг ѕharing уour ideаs οn this blog.

  10. great put up, very informative. I ponder why the opposite specialists of this sector do
    not notice this. You should continue your writing.

    I'm sure, you have a great readers' base already!

  11. I have observed that in old digital cameras, extraordinary sensors
    help to target automatically. Those sensors associated with some video cameras change in contrast, while others use a beam involving infra-red (IR) light,
    especially in low lumination. Higher specs cameras from time
    to time use a mixture of both programs and could have Face Priority AF where the photographic camera can 'See' a face as you
    concentrate only on that. Thanks for sharing your notions
    on this blog.

  12. I wanted to post you a tiny word to thank you very much yet again with the remarkable
    views you've documented here. It has been certainly particularly generous with people like you to make openly what exactly a few people would've offered for an e-book to make some money for themselves, especially considering that you could possibly have done it if you ever desired.
    These advice also served as the good way to fully grasp the rest have the same interest
    really like mine to learn somewhat more on the topic of
    this matter. I believe there are many more pleasant times ahead for those
    who find out your blog post.

    I'm not certain the things that I might have gone through without the entire strategies discussed by you over such a field. It truly was a frustrating scenario for me, however , discovering the well-written tactic you dealt with that made me to cry over contentment. I am just happier for the advice and hope that you are aware of an amazing job you are accomplishing training many others using your web site. I know that you have never got to know all of us.

  16. Thanks for your article on this web site. From
    my own experience, many times softening way up a photograph
    may well provide the wedding photographer with a little bit of an creative flare.
    Often however, that soft blur isn't just what you had planned and can usually spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you anticipate enlarging that.
