LDS Temple pictures - Great holiday gifts.

I wanted to let you know about my collection of LDS Temple photos.  I have them on a website from which you can directly make purchases.

You may know that I've traveled most of the country photographing the temples.  I haven't gotten to them all, but I've photographed the majority of them.  You may have seen some of these photos, antiqued by my cousin, available at Deseret Book stores.  These are those same temple photos, with the addition of a few new ones.  They have been artistically interpreted and edited and have a different look than the postcard versions you see so often.

You can purchase directly from the web site using your credit card.  I'll have the prints made up and you can pick them up from me or I can mail them to you if you're not local.

Here's the web site:
  Just click the link to LDS Temples.

There are two versions of the prints available, let me briefly explain them.

Finished Print - These images are printed using a photographic process and mounted on 1/2 inch black gator board (unlike foam core, gator board is a finished backing material and will not flex).  The prints are laminated with a UV coating, and a museum mount is affixed to the back side of the gator board.  This museum mount uses a cleat and clip sort of attachment; you just screw the clip strip to your wall and the cleat on the back of the print fits into the clip.  An additional strip of mounting material is affixed to the bottom of the print ensuring it will hang perpendicular with your wall surface.  It's a finished solution - ready to hang.


- This photographic print is mounted to 3/16 inch white foam core.  It is intended for those people who want to frame the print behind glass and want to select their own frame to match their home decorating color scheme and style.  The print has no UV coating, so it will need to be hung behind glass for UV protection.  I can recommend a framer here in the valley who does nice work at reasonable prices if you like.

In addition to these two variations on prints, don't overlook the small 4x12 inch mini-panoramas that come mounted on 3/16 black gator board and are laminated for UV protection.  They come with a small display easel.

I haven't finished putting up all the temples that I've photographed, but I'm adding them regularly.  If you have a favorite temple and would like me to put it on the top of my list, please let me know.  If you don't see the size you need, let me know and I'll be happy to accommodate you.

Thanks for your continued support and I hope you have a happy and fun holiday season.

Models - from the Hair-Do fashion show

Here are the photos that have been selected by the models that worked the recent Grand Opening of Hair-Do Salon now in Dana Park in Mesa. 

 Here is Emilou - I understand that she's just 14.  Update:
I'm now told that she is only 12.

Meet Ashley. 






Tres Guapas

Some friends twisted my arm and we did a short photo session in the park today.  Here are just a few photos from that shoot.  Pretty girls, very pretty.  They are, Cassie, Melissa and Missy.

Emily and Jay - Wedding bells

Calissa - she has those eyes.

Young Calissa is quite comfortable in front of the camera, as you can tell.  It was nice to get with Greg and Crissy again to catch up a little and see how the kids have grown.  You'll have to wait to see the family photos, but I just couldn't resist sharing these two.

Marc & Rebecca

Went through about half of the photos I have from this wedding and reception.  Wanted to share them with the world.  It was a great party and this couple has some great friends.

Hair-Do Grand Opening

The Hair-Do Salon in Mesa had their grand opening today.  The event was celebrated with a fashion show in the parking lot, along with free food, massages, and beverages.  The models were all beautiful and talented.  The hair was incredible - you need to check these guys out - just Google them in Mesa AZ

I was pleased to have a small role - I was able to photograph these beautiful girls in between the shows.  There were a LOT of girls and a TON of photos - all great (sorry, it's the girls that made them great, not so much the photographer).  Here are just a few from the collection.  More to come I'm sure.

Joseph Lambert

Joseph is graduating from high school this spring.  He's quite a talented golfer and I wouldn't be surprised if we all saw these bright yellow pants on the pro tour before too long.

About Me

My photo
Queen Creek, Arizona, United States
Here is where I post images from recent shoots and occasional personal info that I like to share with my friends. I will slowly add photos from old shoots as I have time. Check back from time to time to see what's new. Call or email if you'd like to chat about a photo opportunity. If you've come to visit, please just leave a brief comment. You don't have to like the photos, just let me know you were here. I'd really appreciate it.
