I had the blessing and pleasure of photographing Allison and Kyle's wedding portraits on Saturday, July 1st, at the Albuquerque, New Mexico Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
As with all Sealings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), the ceremony took place inside the Temple- a sacred place that isn't allowed to be photographed by the Church after the Temple is dedicated. As a member of the church, however, I've earned my Temple Recommend and can tell you that the inside is just as gorgeous as the outside!
Anyway, it was a beautiful day for a Sealing at the Temple, and Allison and Kyle were absolutely wonderful to work with! These two were absolutely in love, and it definitely showed in their smiles!
Kyle's groomsmen were a blast to work with, giving him a hard time and making us all laugh. And, they were all so proud of their matching socks! They also had no problem acting as Allie's body guards.
Allie's bridesmaids were absolutely supportive of her on this special day. You could see the love and friendship between all of them.
As we moved to the portion of the portraits where it's just the bride, groom, and myself, it was almost magical to see Kyle and Allie forget that I was there after I'd directed them into a pose and simply be themselves as they would with eachother.
It was a blast to work with Allie and Kyle, and I want to wish them the best of luck as they start this new chapter in their lives together!
