Jennifer and Jason: Part One

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Jennifer and Jason were sealed in the San Diego LDS Temple on January 24th.  They had been married 5 years with two adorable children when they decided to be sealed together as a family for all eternity.  I was so excited for them and was happy to be asked to take pictures.  I think they will be glad they decided to commemorate this special day with wedding photography.  I definitely recommend all brides and grooms hire a professional photographer (even if it’s not me) for their wedding no matter how small their budget is.  I hear too many stories of regret from people just having a friend or family member take the pictures.  It’s just too important – your pictures are truly the only thing that lasts and records the memory of the day once it’s over.

Anyways, back to Jennifer and Jason’s special day.  While we waited for them to exit the temple, we took some pictures of the beautiful temple and grounds.

Once Jennifer and Jason were sealed, they exited the temple with their family and friends.  We took some portraits of their group and then focused on the wedding couple.

Here they are with their adorable children.  I’m glad we got a couple shots before the kids were done.  It had been a long day for them, so we took a few pictures and then let them go with a family member while we finished the photo session.

In front of the temple – so sweet.

And while I was taking the main shot above, here is a tender moment caught by my hubby, Brian.  He is so good at the candids.

And of course their rings.

I love the personality in these next two.  Jason had a contageous laugh and big grin that just made me happy.

The biggest thing we noticed was Jennifer and Jason’s sweet relationship.  They had a quiet, relaxed way about them, even on this stressful and busy day.  They were so kind to one another and genuinely happy to be together.  They were up for whatever we suggested and always did it with giggles and laughs.

I processed a few with textures to give them a unique aged, worn look.  In part two, coming up – I processed a few more this way.  I like the look of this very traditional temple shot, grunged up a little with the textures.

And lastly for now – my favorite ring shot.  It shows off how amazingly thin Jennifer is (after two babies!!) and I love the light filtering through.
