I love, love, love taking wedding pictures at the Gilbert Temple. It is our home temple so I am a little biased 🙂
Melissa and David were great to work with. David met Melissa while serving on his mission in Mexico. Melissa doesn’t speak very much English yet so David translated for me. It was fun and reminded me of a wedding a few years back where the groom went on his mission to Russia. After his mission he met up with a girl he baptized there. They were married at the Mesa Temple. The groom translated the Russian for me during their photo shoot.
The weather was great at the Gilbert Temple, meaning not too hot for this time of year. After the sun started to set we went out to the field to the East of the Temple. I love those sunset shots there. The field was a perfect color of green and purple. With the external video lights that I set up the sunset shots always turn out great without the need for a flash.
