A lot of people think its bad luck for the groom to see the bride on their wedding day. I disagree. Although it is nice to walk down the aisle and see each other for the first time, it can’t truly be captured. At least not with both of you in the picture. This is why I love first look sessions.
Not only do you have special time put aside just for you and your partner, you get to capture it in all its glory. Because it’s just you two (and the photographer) your true emotions show and it will forever be remembered. Walking down the aisle is somewhat of a performance, or at least it seems that way. Everyone is looking at you! This surely affects how you act and feel.
Dan and I decided to have a first look session because that personal time with each other means a lot. In that one moment in time, it’s just us. With excitement gleaming from our eyes and subtle displays of nervous undertones, both looking the best we ever have looked. How happy and beautiful we will both be, sharing our last moments of individual bliss. Anxious to speak the words that will bind us forever. How can you not want to capture this?
Here are some inspiring images from couples who feel the same as me. Looking at these photos made me so happy. Not to mention, excited about my wedding day. This is why seeing each other before you’re married is not bad luck. Just look at their expressions and you will see for yourself why this moment is priceless.
