A first look is a modern day wedding trend that I absolutely adore! A first look is something that will allow for your and your partner to spend more time together on your wedding day. Traditionally you wait until the ceremony to see one another but with a first look you can take the time to embrace, share personal vows, or just be with each other in whatever way that fits YOU as a couple. In addition doing a first look allows for you to take photos prior to your ceremony which means you will actually get to enjoy your cocktail hour with your guests instead of doing all of your wedding photos at once which can be a bit overwhelming. I often hear from people that they are scared that it will take away from the moment they first see one another down the isle but that could not be the furthest from the truth, the moment you are surrounded by your family and best friends with your partner walking down the isle will still be the emotion filled moment you would hope it to be(at least thats the feedback I get)! That being said as I say to allll my cutie clients your day is YOUR day and it should be whatever you want it to be with or without a first look. Enjoy these stunning photos of Leilani and Shanes first look and private vows these photos have my heart because you can feel the emotions through the imagery!!
