My First Temple Trip

Back in July I took my first temple trip with my friend Cristy. I had been wanting to photograph a couple at the temple before/after their sealing. So I asked on Facebook if there was a couple that  needed a photographer for their wedding. Luckily there is a sweet sweet family in our ward who had a son who was going to be getting married at the Kansas City Temple. Josh and Jaden were going to be sealed on July 25th. Cristy and I made the nearly four hour drive up to Kansas City for a “girls trip” and for the sealing.

As I took steps inside the temple I experienced such a peaceful feeling.


Calm.


Warmth.


Tranquility.


Stillness.


Life.


Harmony.


Contentment.


Composure.


Calmness.


Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I try to describe the feeling. It truly is a House of the Lord. If you stepped inside, you would feel it too. Isabell25


It was a wonderful trip! Cristy and I did baptisms one night and then went out shopping for good deals. Then we also visited Liberty Jail where I learned more about church history. And not to mention that the pictures turned out pretty good I think! :)

  1. Those pictures are absolutely awesome!!! That second one is my favorite. They will treasure you capturing their special day forever. What a talent you have.

    And I think the same thing about the temple- I love the peace and simplicity of life I feel when in there. Sounds like a great trip.
