“That first look and those moments are truly felt and will be kept as “Ours and our own.” and that is what made the “the first look”……Awesome. –The Groom
Having not seen Vinessa in her dress, or how she would wear her hair, what pair of the hundred pairs of shoes she had bought and returned would she be wearing….I was waiting for the whole picture to come together and even though I am a huge “spoiler alert” I didn’t want to ruin this one as I was holding it close to my heart especially knowing that it would be one of the most memorable memories…of our lives together.
Emotions are sometimes very unpredictable, this I know. I may not cry often or for no reason. If I do, it’s for a pretty good reason and most times it’s that Sarah McLaughlin abused animal commercial. It just breaks my heart. But I knew when I would see Vinessa in her dress, hair, bouquet in hand that I would be very emotional and may even cry, a lot. Or uncontrollably. And that is what I did. simply put…I cried because she was just beautiful and words could not describe. Vinessa just had the beauty of a goddess sitting there in the courtyard on the bench, glistening! With her angel-like personality and demeanor, I could not believe that I was about to marry this warm and beautiful woman. I felt so lucky to be the one that she had chosen to be with. Yes, it was a great moment!
I wanted those emotions and images to be captured in a private, secluded, in an intimate setting as they were. I would not have done it any other way. And yes, I recommend the first look shoot to everyone who wants to capture those moments, emotions, feelings, those tears, the weakness in your knees, the butterflies in the stomach in a way that will be kept close to your hearts and forever, every time you “look into the photo”!
