With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d be fun to share my first look wedding photos with you guys.
When Joe and I were planning our wedding over a year ago, we had to decide whether or not we wanted to have a first look session.
Now, for those of you who don’t know what that means, first look photos are photos you take on your wedding day BEFORE the actual wedding.
Traditionally, the groom doesn’t see the bride until she walks down the aisle. But with first look photos, the bride and groom meet before the ceremony to capture the first moment they see each other.
When I decided that I wanted to take first look photos, sure, I had moments of doubt. Do I want to keep things traditional? Is it really worth the argument with my mom? What if it turns out to be a total disaster? I had all those thoughts.
But let me tell you guys something, it was 100% worth it.
In the craziness of your wedding day, you’re surrounded by people every minute…every hour. So these 20 minutes that I spent with Joe before we said ‘I DO’ were some of my favorite moments of that day.
Glad Lara Rios captured them on camera.
