Many brides struggle with the decision of weather or not to have a first sight, or go the traditional route and wait to see their beloved at the end of the aisle. I have photographed both situations, and would say that the decision entire depends on the couple and how they want their wedding day to run. Both choices are perfect and produce great shots. Traditionally, a groom does not see his bride until she is walking down the aisle. This is a beautiful tradition and many of my clients have followed this route. Another option couples are choosing these days is to see each other before the ceremony. The big upside to this is that the couple can do some portraits before their ceremony and be able to enjoy their cocktail hour with their guests. The set-up is still very intimate and sweet- with only the bride, groom, and myself present. All the magic of seeing each other for the first time happens on either situation you decide. Tell me YOUR perfect story, I would love to capture it!
