First looks are truly meant for just the two of you. You are allowed to be who you want to be, react how you want to react, and be in a comforting environment (without a hundred eyes on you)! I had a hard time letting go of the tradition of walking down the aisle with him seeing me for the first time, but I found our first look was still the same emotional effect, actually scratch that - it was heightened because it was only him and I. It was our little moment away where we could really take everything in and be present in the moment. And PS: the walk down the aisle was still just as powerful (and it came without all the nerves and jitters!)

When you choose to take pictures prior to the ceremony, you are really giving yourself (and your family and bridal party) more time to enjoy the day and your party! The day goes by SO fast, and trust me you’ll want to be present for it, not feeling like you were away the whole time taking pictures. You’ll actually have time to mingle with your guests, grab a cocktail or two, taste your hor d'oeuvres and just be present without having to immediately leave the scene to get photos. Taking photos prior to the ceremony also frees up your photographer’s time after the ceremony for detail shots like your venue space, guests mingling, and getting clean images of the dinner tables and centerpieces before the guests file in.

The morning of weddings can sometimes be a littttle more chaotic than we intended them to be. My first look was the first moment out of the day where I was able to relax and forget about everything else. It completely put the day into perspective and prioritized everything. Seeing him and being with him allowed me to get out of my head, away from worrying about all the little details, and instead focus on what was real, that I was marrying my soulmate!

I love the opportunity to capture my couples as they see each other for the first time in a real, raw environment. Instead of quickly trying to juggle multiple important shots and angles in a very short amount of time as you're walking down that aisle (and possibly dodging a few guests as they lift up their phones) a first look will ensure candid, up close and emotional photos that you'll be so thankful for later! And better yet, these photos will be in addition to the ones taken as you walk down the aisle and marry your partner. This gives you even MORE meaningful images of your wedding day.
