The First Look

From the moment you met her you knew she was the one. All those years of heartache and wonder were finally making sense. As you straighten your tie and pin on your boutonniere, you wonder what you did so right to win her over. Soon, she will be walking towards you in a blur of familiar faces and eloquent sounds, but all you will see is her.

One of my favorite moments to capture is the first look between a bride and groom. Many times I suggest to shoot a private session with the couple prior to the ceremony. Seeing each other in an intimate setting like this is a great way to release the nerves and capture those more natural emotions. Choosing a scenic yet secluded location like Arnett’s Gulfside Trails, for your first look creates breathtaking moments, while diversifying your images with another location beyond the ceremony. You can also choose to take your more formal photos prior to the ceremony, allowing you more time to enjoy your reception.

As much as I love to capture this special moment, I still appreciate the tradition of seclusion before the ceremony. It is exhilarating to witness the emotions of a groom as he sees his bride walk to meet him. There is a flood of excitement and emotions pouring out of them as they see each other for the first time. It is love in its purest form.

I would love to work with you, and capture these unforgettable moments for you.
