For our formal session, my husband and I decided to go for a "first look" session. Not only did it give us a relaxing time frame to get the photos done before all the ceremony/reception hurry, I think that it really helped relax us! I know, old tradition says that it is bad luck for the bride & groom to see each other before she walks down the aisle, but I've never been one for following tradition just for tradition's sake...or a believer in bad luck to begin with. And looking back, making the decision to have a pre-wedding session was one that I am SO glad I made, and would make again in a heartbeat! Overall it really helped our nerves (well, at least mine! my husband was still pretty nervous for the ceremony! ^_^ hehe.), and was a wonderful experience. Of course it helped to have such a wonderful photographer too! Having done our engagement session with her prior to the wedding, helped us be more comfortable in front of the camera..she was really great to work with, and would be my wedding photographer again without a doubt. :-)

I don't think anyone needs notes or descriptions for these photos, so I'll just let it be. :-) Hope you enjoyed seeing a little part from our special day.
