Favorite First Looks | Tessa Marie Weddings

Some of you know you wanted to see your bride/groom before the wedding and others were sure they'd want to wait. While yet others are on the fence. So many times couples are afraid it might take away from that moment at the top of the aisle.... but in my experience it truly only adds to it. It gives you more time and flexibility for your pictures, relieves all the nerves and anxious feelings you might otherwise experience and allows your entire wedding party to celebrate together for the entire day. More time simply equates to more pictures. (Pictures of the two of you, with your wedding party, family etc. Everyone wins!) Best of all you save SO much time not playing "cat and mouse" dodging and hiding from one another throughout the course of the pre-ceremony pictures and transportation times.

At the end of the day I don't ever want to force a couple into a decision that isn't 100% their own but do my best to give them the information they need to make the best decision for them.

I witnessed so super sweet first looks this year and also wanted to share just how sweet and emotional their walk down the aisle was as well. :-D
