Tuesdays wedding was fantastic up at the Oakland LDS Temple. We were lucky enough to be the only wedding for the day up there, so we weren’t rushed at all with our formals on the Temple steps, and we didn’t have to worry about having miscellaneous people hanging out in our backgrounds as well. We ended up walking around the grounds photographing for around two hours. Even though I’ve photographed lots of weddings here, I still am amazed that I can always seem to find either a new location or a new angle to photograph from.
My assistant Shane and I left San Jose around 9:30 to make sure we got up there plenty early, since traffic can be horrid heading up that direction. Since we got there early, we spent a some time on the grounds bouncing some image ideas off each other.
We also were enjoying the weather, which was cloudy & cool at first, but a few minutes before Peter & Jaime came out of the Temple the sun came out along with some heat. The breeze that we had during the afternoon was great though. It kept us from getting too hot out there!
