We've decided on doing an actual 'first look' with us and the photographer. I know it will still be an incredibly romantic (and emotional!) moment, and I'm hoping it might keep me from crying in our ceremony as much as I would've if I saw him for the first time at the altar. I'm also hoping that it will ensure that we'll have a picture of David's face when he sees me. I think it would be much easier to get one this way, rather than as I'm walking down the aisle. I thought I might have to almost talk my mom into it, but she's totally on board, especially after seeing pictures like these:
And the pictures from our photographer:
I can't wait to see the look on David's face when he sees me for the first time. I've told him-multiple times-that I really hope he cries. Ha, no pressure or anything, right? I'm so glad that we'll have great pictures of this incredible moment. And we'll still get to take the fun pictures bridal party pictures that I want so badly afterwards. (I'll be posting more of my inspiration pictures soon!)
Did you decide to do a "first look"? What are/were your reasons? And do you plan on it being just the two of you and your photographer or are you going to have family and bridal party members there to share it with you?
