Joshua and Erica

Joshua and Erica are a fun-loving couple from North Carolina.  On November 17th, 2012, the two were sealed and married inside Washington, DC's Latter-Day Saints Temple on a bright and sunny Fall morning.  Josh and Erica's family and friends were present to welcome the newly married couple, and celebrate the beginning of  their lasting and wonderful lives together.  Erica and Josh deeply love one another as is evident in the joy both exude just being in the same room together.  They love to be goofy, and made sure the party in Annapolis kept going strong, with the help of a cardboard cutout, and the dance moves from Gangnam Style.  As the night ended, surrounded by loved ones with sparklers, they climbed into their car and with one more kiss, they departed to begin their happy new life together. All photos may be viewed and purchased for print by visiting my client site here; ask Erica or Joshua for the password.

This was my first Mormon wedding I've ever attended or photographed, so it felt very strange not being allowed to take pictures inside the LDS Temple, when every nerve in my body is telling me I should be shooting.  It was also the first wedding I've had a wonderful assistant by my side.  I've previously second shot for other photographers, and I've double teamed for a friend's wedding, but for my own weddings, I've always shot solo.  This time, I brought along the talented Eddie Kyle to help cover the day, and help give some exposure and advice.  A few of the photos I've included below were shot by him (they are marked); all were edited by me for consistant color and style.
