Tucson Arizona Temple Wedding Photos / / Hailey and Matt

Tucson Arizona Temple Wedding photographed by Melissa Fritzsche Photography.

Hailey and Matt wanted to share a first look at the beautiful Tucson Arizona LDS Temple. They knew that their wedding day would be busy, and wanted the opportunity to share a quiet moment together surrounded by the calm, peaceful spirit of the Tucson temple. A first look is a wedding tradition gaining in popularity, and one that I love! If you haven’t heard of what a first look is on your wedding day, head over to this blog post where I explain more about what a first look is and how to incorporate one into your wedding day.

The First Look

Matt arrived early to the Temple grounds and was a combination of nervous and excited. I positioned him where he wouldn’t accidentally catch an early glimpse of his bride-to-be. Once Matt was ready, I headed back to where Hailey was anxiously waiting in the car with her Mom. After I greeted Hailey with a warm hug and helped her out of the car, she began walking towards her groom. Both Hailey and Matt were grinning as time seemed to slow moments before Hailey called out to Matt and he saw his bride, radiantly standing in front of him. It was such a pure and perfect moment.

Wedding Photos at the Tucson Temple

Couples of the Latter-Day-Saint faith choose to get married in temples. Temples are sacred and special places where couples begin their marriage by making promises to each other and God. As a wedding photographer, I am not permitted into the Temple to photograph a couple’s ceremony, but as soon as couples exit from the Temple I am sure to capture wedding photos at the Temple grounds that they will cherish. The Tucson Temple is beautifully landscaped and the blue dome underneath Moroni is stunning. After their first look, Hailey and Matt were full of joy as I photographed them in various locations around the Temple.

The Reception

A few days after their first look and wedding photos, Hailey and Matt held an intimate ring ceremony and reception at Hailey’s parents’ home. Family and friends watch as Hailey and Matt exchanged wedding rings and joined the newlyweds for a fun gathering full of laughter and my favorite donuts!

Thank you so much Hailey and Matt for letting me be your girl! I love getting to be a wedding photographer and capture the beginning of your journey together!
