This is a case of “I couldn’t resist”. I’m currently finishing off the processing of the big Italy wedding and made it to Michela and Aaron’s first look. A first look is becoming more common and it helps ease the nerves for the bride and groom the rest of the day. Michela and Aaron planned on having their photos done before the wedding ceremony so I proposed the first look to them and Michela loved the thought of it. The general idea is the bride and groom get to see each other for the first time alone; the bride can approach the groom or the groom can approach the bride; the bride may also opt to be escorted by her father to add a bit of the traditional ceremony aspect to it.
Seeing the anticipation in their faces here and the smile on Aaron’s face in the second photo as Michela is approaching brings me right back to that day. As you can see, I just had to share.
