"American Temples" book now available!

I was able to get this book in November shortly after it came out. Before I tell you how amazing it is, let me tell you a little bit of history.

I first heard Scott Jarvie, a local photographer, speak at an event in Utah on a panel of speakers about social media and such. That was my first encounter seeing him in real life. I checked out his website that night when I got home and was intrigued by his work. A short time later, Tony was able to get tickets to go to The Wave on the border of AZ and Utah. Some people who had wanted tickets bailed and I immediately thought of Scott and invited him to go with us. To make a long story short, it worked out and we had a fun roadtrip and adventurous hike. 

Scott set out to photograph every dedicated LDS temple in the USA and it took 14 months while living out of his Airstream. What a cool experience! This project was called Faith in America.

He also photographed many churches all over the USA and that book comes out next year!

I was really excited to be able to share the book when we were in Idaho for Thanksgiving with my parents and Tony's parents.

This 9x12 hard bound book has 280 pages and includes interesting facts about each temple, stories, church news articles and beyond amazing photos. 

If you are interested in purchasing this book you will need to place your order by the 18th of December if you want to get it in time for Christmas!

There is also a calendar available for $15.99
