It was a warm August day and the light was just right for backlit portraits. Shooting in these conditions without a flash can be a challenge but the tone-neutral reflection from the concrete yields more balanced light. I stood pretty far back with a 135 telephoto lens for a some compression — that you normally wouldn’t see with a big group photo. Groomsmen joke around during a fort collins lds temple wedding in fort collins colorado. There are two photos in this series. The first is a wide angle vertical shot that places the men in perspective to the large Temple behind them. The second is a more intimate shot, with more emotion and highlights their intimate community. From my memory, the first image was shot at 24mm while the second was most likely an 85, or possibly a 135. bride and groom relax after their fort collins lds temple wedding in fort collins colorado family groups celebrate at a fort collins lds temple wedding in fort collins colorado A two image panel shot during a Fort Collins LDS Temple wedding in Fort Collins, Colorado by tomKphoto. The first image is a simple detail image in soft light of a bride’s bouquet with the second image has more drama both in subject and lighting. The second image has a bride & groom kissing in front of the Temple fountain with strong afternoon backlight. I probably used an 24-70 zoom lens at around 60mm for the bouquet image and a 135 telephoto for the backlit kissing shot. This couple was a pleasure to work with and the photos around the Temple had a breezy and playful mood. A groom speeds away after a Fort Collins LDS Temple wedding reception in Fort Collins, Colorado. The wedding couple’s mischievous friends decorated the car while the bride & groom were busy celebrating with family. The look of surprise on frustration on the groom was comical as the decorations made it difficult to even enter the vehicle. In the end he was able to open the door for his bride but first had to climb over the center console to get to his driver’s throne. This image was intentionally shot with a little motion blur and off-camera flash to exaggerate the manic exit.

“We Can Do Hard Things” said the sign, hanging above a photo of the Salt Lake Temple in James’ boyhood home. It’s a a portion of a quote from Allan Packer and speaks to a viruous life filled with a quiet dignity and inner strength. So James’ parents were ready for a few stressful moments when the signed on to host a backyard wedding for their artist son and his bride, an Alaskan concert violinist.

In between the raindrops were vows, donuts, laughs, fellowship, and some choice eats from The Crock Spot food truck. Eric Hovey provided the rich soundtrack — broken only for a couple live performances. First was Julie, together with her new stepdaughters, playing a violin trio cover of Black Eyed Peas “Tonight”. Then the groom sang a favorite folk song, accompanied by his new wife.
