Your wedding day will be one of the best days of your life! I want to be there for you to help you remember every large or small detail. My goal is to capture every moment as it happens throughout the day.
Let's capture your fun adventures in your life no matter what they are. All these special moments deserve to be documented! A fun & unique way to show off your love, spend time together and make beautiful memories.
Are you on the fence about doing a first look? Unsure of the benefits of doing a first look? Let me educate you on just some of the major perks of doing a first look. Click through to find out why first looks are the absolute best!
Don't you want to spend more than just a few hours together on the day of your wedding? On a wedding day without a first look, you don't get to even speak to your fiancé until after you say i do! Call me crazy but on a day meant for the two of you , don't you want to spend as much time with your fiancé as possible?! Doing a first look allows you guys to have a quiet private moment between the two of you before the ceremony and before the crazy, exciting chaos begins. Once the ceremony is over your guest are going to swarm you leaving little time for the two of you to enjoy each others company.
Alot of people want the first time their groom to see them on their wedding day is when they are walking down the aisle. They fear that they won't get that emotion filled reaction if a first look as been done already. I have found that some guys are really shy, and actually are more likely to express their true emotions in front of just you during a first look. While all eyes are on him during the ceremony it is possible to freeze up and become filled with nervousness. That walk down the isle is a build up of so many things. Odds are there will still be tons of emotion flowing even if you two have already seen each other.
A huge perk is that you guys get to enjoy cocktail hour! With a first look you are able to do couple photos, bridal party photos and even most of family photos all before the ceremony. Without a first look, all of those photos have to be done during cocktail hour, making you miss all that time that could have been spent enjoying food, drinks & time with guests! You are spending a lot of money for this wedding, you deserve to enjoy all of it as much as possible. Most people don't realise just how long all these photos take and they are bummed when they realise they are going to miss all the fun!
I haven't sold you yet? You will get tons more photos! Think double the portraits of you and your partner. Once the wedding is all over these are the photos you will be looking back on for years to come! These photos will be how you remember you day. You want to make sure everything you hoped for was captured. All that time prepping hair, doing make up & picking out the perfect dress you only get to wear once, you want as many photos as possible! Doing all your photos before hand lets us start earlier and gives us more time for everything!
Doing a first look allows for a less stressful day. There is more time built into the timeline and you are able to do all the photos before hand. Trust me you would much rather be spending your time at cocktail hour rather than trying to rally uncooperative family or drunk groomsmen to pay attention and look at the camera. Bonus it also helps to ease nerves a bit.
