Michaela + Ty: married, part 1 the first look {Gilbert Wedding Photographer}

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

a few days before they said "i do", Michaela and Ty had a first look session.  this is a decision i like to discuss thoroughly with couples at our initial meeting.  a first look is a great time to get beautiful and unique bridal portraits.  away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding day, couples can have a peaceful moment to themselves to see each other for the first time in their wedding attire.  

traditionalists, never fear, great bridal portraits can and will happen on your wedding day as well.  but a pre-wedding bridal sessions gives you an amount of control you won't have on your big day.  in this case, we got a beautiful private location at the optimal time of the day, with no obligations to family or guests.  

here Ty waited patiently to see his beautiful bride for the first time:

 i have learned to be pretty forceful during these sessions.  i've had brides and grooms get over anxious and turn around to soon, or rush to the first look without capturing each blissfully sweet moment.
