First looks are all the rage in the world of wedding photography. It’s when the bride and groom catch a glimpse of each other before the wedding ceremony. Not only is it a great opportunity to capture the emotions of seeing each other for the first time without the pressure of a room full of people, it alleviates some of the timeline issues people have when planning time for pictures throughout an already busy wedding day. Tanja and Zach opted to do a first look for their wedding- a “first” for me too! They wanted to spend as much time as possible with their guests coming in from all parts of the country, so it was definitely the best option for them. Not only were the moments before and after the big “reveal” so sweet, we had ample time afterwards to drive around for some different shots of the couple and their wedding party. All these photos were taken right before the ceremony. It’s amazing how many different locations we were able to visit in such a short time, leaving plenty of time after the ceremony to share with family and friends.
