LDS Wedding Photography by Scott Mosher of Suzy & Steven at the Oakland LDS Temple.
The weather forecast for the day Suzy & Steven got married kept changing. Early in the week it was supposed to have a 50-60% chance of rain Thurs – Sunday. I checked Thurs morning and it changed to sunny all weekend. Sunny enough I took the family to the Oakland Zoo Friday. Saturday the weather called for partly cloudy until 2pm, and then a 30% chance of rain, and cold. I came up with my assistant Joe expecting cold weather. By the time the couple came out of the Temple at 1, I had my shirt sleeves rolled up and wishing I had brought some sunscreen.
We started off with the usual candids of guests before the couple came out of the Temple. Then as the couple came out we have fun getting candids of them greeting everyone. We spent a little over an hour photographing the formals on the steps and then took the bridal party out for some other fun photographs. We wandered around the upper terrace for a little bit as well as on the bridges that are on the Temple grounds.
Thanks to Joe for coming out and assisting me at the wedding. You also got some great shots from the day.
I was asked by another Bay Area wedding photographer Sam Hassas (who I’ve worked with lots) to come and help photograph the wedding of Lauren and Frank. The wedding was held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA.
The day started off with me hanging out taking candid photographs of the groom & groomsmen hanging out in their hotel room at the Fairmont as well as getting ready. We spent the morning hanging out, and these guys were having a great time. We were able to have some extra time to a good amount of groom & groomsmen portraits before we had to head off to the church.
They were married at the Saint John Vianney Catholic church in San Jose. The ceremony was well attended by their family & friends.
After we finished the family portraits at the church we all headed back to the Fairmont Hotel for their wedding reception. I spent most of the reception photographing candid portraits of the guests as well as alternate angles of the main events.
