Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Video {Kelley and Eric}

Had a great time working with Kelley and Eric for their Mesa AZ Temple wedding.  We filmed their wedding video and also took care of their wedding photography.  It was a beautiful day at the Mesa Arizona Temple for their wedding video.  The Temple was just finishing up their two week maintenance close and so we had the whole Temple to ourselves minus a few guys still doing some landscape work.  Here is their video.

Mesa Temple Wedding Photos {Bailee & Taylor}

Yesterday we had a great time shooting with Bailee and Taylor at the Mesa LDS Temple.  The temperature had cooled off just a little the last few days and in the shade I think it was only 110.  Bailee and Taylor have had an incredible journey to get to their wedding day.  They are both really talented musicians and singers.  I am looking forward to their wedding and reception tonight.  Taylor had a great tie tac made just for their wedding.

Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photography {Christine and Cody}

Another fun time at the Mesa AZ Temple taking wedding photos.  Christine and Cody were married a few weeks ago.  I have shot a number of weddings for Christine’s family over the years at the Temple.   Part of her extended family flew me out to the San Diego Temple a few years ago to shoot there as well.  The last shot cracks me up.  Cody showing off his ring to the guys.

Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photos {Larisa and Russell}

I met Larisa at a photo shoot for a local wedding dress rental company  A few months later as she was preparing to get married in the Mesa AZ Temple she gave me a call.  We first went out to Coon Bluff for some engagement shots.  Larisa put together a really cute wedding announcement with the photos I took out there.

Fast forward two months and we are taking their wedding photos at the Mesa AZ Temple.  Larisa and Russell were super easy to work with and we got some great shots at the Temple and then later that night at their reception at The Wright House in Mesa.

Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photography {Febe and Jacob}

The weather is beautiful at the Mesa AZ Temple for wedding photos.  There are so many weddings at the Temple in the Spring.  It is so much fun to see all the couples around the Temple taking their wedding photos.

I had a great time this week with Febe and Jacob at the Temple.  We shot their photos about an hour before sunset.  The lighting was perfect.  All the Spring flowers have been planted at the Temple and they look great..  All photos by

Mesa Arizona Temple Wedding Photography {Janae and Weston}

Today was great at the Mesa Arizona Temple.  The spring flowers are planted and its looking great down there.  Janae and Weston will be married in a few days.   Tomorrow I get to also film a love story piece with them.  Its always fun to hear about each couple’s story on how they met, first date, etc.  They were fun to work with at the Temple this afternoon.  Check out Weston’s cowboy boots.  Even groom’s can have fun with their shoes.  🙂

Last night I did some filming out at The Vintage Barn.  It was fun to work with Aubrey and Brent.  I have actually done a number of weddings for Aubrey’s family over the years.

Aubrey and Brent were married at the Mesa AZ Temple earlier in the day.

Wedding Proposal {Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photography}

Yesterday was great.  I have shot a number of weddings for the brides family over the years including her twin sisters wedding just two years ago.

The groom and I exchanged some secret Facebook and text messages to set this up.  He decided he wanted to propose on her birthday.  They first went to dinner and then “decided” to go for a walk at the Mesa Arizona Temple.  At the appointed time I waited in some trees off in the distance of where he would propose.  I started filming as soon as they arrived.  Groom was on his knee and I got the shot.  Of course she said YES!  They will be married in November at the Temple.


Alexandria and Marcus {Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photographer}

I had a great time out at the Mesa Arizona Temple with Alexandria and Marcus.  They were a really fun couple that obviously were in love.  M & A were married in the morning then we all went over to the Landmark in Mesa for a luncheon and really funny performance by their friends and family. 

Later that evening they held their reception at the ASU LDS Institute.  Then at the end of the evening they left their reception riding on their long boards.  What a fun day.

The Vintage Barn in Gilbert Arizona

I had a great time working with Tawnee and Daniel out at The Vintage Barn in Gilbert.  The Vintage Barn is a fun new place to have a wedding that opened this year.  I have known the owner Marlene Jolley for a number of  years after shooting at her sons wedding.  She has a great eye for decorating.  The wedding reception was perfect and I would feel great about recommending The Vintage Barn to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding and or reception.

Mesa Arizona LDS Wedding Photos

I had a great time recently out with a new couple.  The bride wanted to start her wedding photos and video out at Coons Bluff North of Mesa.  What a great location for shooting.  We were able to get some great shots out there.  Afterwards we all drove back to the Mesa Arizona Temple.  We got there at the perfect time of day for wedding photos at the Mesa Arizona Temple.  The summer flowers at the Temple were in full bloom and the grass as green as ever.  Its great to take photos and video at the Mesa AZ Temple this time of year.  Daniel and Tawnee were great to work with.  They will be getting married at the Temple in a few weeks.

Its summer time in AZ. Wedding in the Valley slow down considerably during this part of the year. The Mesa AZ Temple will be closing shortly for their semi annual deep cleaning. I always keep track of their schedule as I know when they are closed I won’t have any shooting. This is though the time when all fall season bookings come in. So many brides and grooms seem to get engaged during this part of the summer. I had four calls just yesterday with couples all getting married in the fall. The busy season for us usually starts up again the second week in August, slows for a few weeks in September and then right back again first week in October through the holidays.

I love this time of year to catch up on all the editing and to reconnect with clients from the late spring and early summer. I am excited for two weddings at the San Diego Temple during August. It will be fun to be over there shooting on the beach. I have some favorite spots over there that make for some incredible images.

Your LDS Temple Wedding Photos

The day you get married in the temple is one you will always want to remember. Members of the church get married in LDS Temples throughout the world. We specialize in LDS Temple wedding photography. For 30 years we have been taking picture and video at LDS Temples all around the United States. It has been a pleasure to spend the day with each of our wedding couples.

Of course because we are based in the Mesa Arizona area a majority of our weddings that we take pictures and videos at is at the Mesa Arizona Temple. We love taking wedding pictures at the Mesa Arizona Temple. We have also taken wedding pictures at the Gila Valley Temple and the Snowflake Temple which are also located in Arizona. In addition to that we have shot at weddings at the San Diego Temple, Los Angeles Temple, Medford Oregon Temple, Salt Lake City Temple, Las Vegas Nevada Temple, Portland Oregon Temple, Manti Utah Temple, Bountiful Utah Temple, Seattle Washington Temple, Atlanta Georgia Temple, Chicago, Illinois Temple, even as far away as the Washington DC Temple. And many, many more.

All of our Temple Wedding Photos and videos are shot with the top of the line Canon photo and video equipment. We do really recommend that a couple tries to take their formal photos/videos of the two of them on a day different then their wedding day. That way there is no rush on the wedding day. We can then take the time to take photos with their family and friends after the sealing without having to worry about taking the couple around the Temple for photos. We generally plan on starting photos at the reception about one hour before guests start to arrive.

Mesa AZ Temple Wedding Photographer

I love shooting at the Mesa Arizona Temple. Over the last 20 years I have shot 1000’s of weddings at the Mesa Arizona Temple. It has been a great business to be involved in. I have really enjoyed spending wedding days with the happy couples. I have also had a chance to shoot at the Gila Valley Temple and Snowflake Temple both of which are also located in Arizona.

The design of the Mesa Arizona is somewhat unique. I love the carvings of the Pioneers and handcart companies on the top. I am not sure everyone notices that but

One of the best things about shooting at the Mesa Arizona Temple is the temple grounds. The full time staff at the Temple do an incredidble job at keeping the Temple in a perfect condition. No matter what time of year I shoot there we can always find beautiful locations with flowers in bloom. It has been interesting over the years to watch the different spots on the ground that have become popular for shots and then fade away. One currently popular shot is on the west side of the Mesa Temple. Taking the couple out into the street on 1st Avenue about 100 yards to the west of the gates gives a great shot of the Temple in the background. It is especially nice during monsoon season when the clouds over the Temple really become dramatic. The monsoon season also gives some really great sunset shots with the couple up on the upper lawn on the south west side.
