Chico California Photographer: A First Look
The first look: I define this as a choice that couples make to see one another before the wedding ceremony. Do I love this choice? Yes! I love the first look because it is intimate. It is shared privately between the bride and groom, with the exception of a photographer. As they see one another for the first time on their wedding day, nothing is moving and time stands still. There is no program urging them on, no persons to distract them. It is simply a moment. And that moment is real and breathtaking and unforgettable.
That moment is also captured on film. And that is what I get the honor of doing -- and this is why I love a first look.
There are other reasons why I encourage my couples to see one another before the wedding (and of course, I totally respect couples when they choose to see one another for the first time at the ceremony). These logistical reasons I will share in a later post.
For now, this is truly a tease! But, you do not want to miss the rest of their photos, all to be shown early next week.
Cheers to Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
