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.
A few days after their initial wedding portrait session we had the actual wedding at the Oakland CA LDS Temple. We had a good time hanging out with their family & friends waiting for them to come out of the Temple. Then we headed out to their backyard wedding reception in San Jose, CA at a friends house. They transformed the backyard into a “little Italy” and they did an awesome job. Italian soda fountain, homemade ice cream sandwiches, hanging umbrellas, lawn games, and tons of images of them hanging on the fences.
Thanks to Keith Simonian for hanging out and helping me with this one as my voice was going (since I had a sore throat at the time). Your help is always appreciated!
