FIRST LOOK

The heart pounding stuff

Big feelings, realness + intimacy

Wait - before you skip this part. First looks are our favorite part of a wedding. It is a huge myth that favorite human will not cry if they see you. The feeling is always there and you can have some of the best moments in a first look. It is honestly one of the few moments in the entire day you'll have to yourselves with no one else around. We all seek that intimate private moment on a wedding that is hardly given to you as a couple. The biggest benefit of a first look is that it can feel like your day is stretched out because you can use the time for additional portraits and allow you to do a lot of things prior to the ceremony rather than cramming everything in 1 hour later.

CEREMONY┐

Quick tip for your ceremony. If you're having an outdoor ceremony or elopement - we strongly encourage you to start the ceremony one hour and half before sunset. This will make ensure that your you have all the pretty light and transition smoothly into your portraits. If you're having an indoor ceremony, we recommend a little earlier than sunset as the light in the space will be huge for your photos. We also love the warmth of having a ton of candles or string lights to make it more cozy. Candle light if indoors will be your best friend - sometimes spaces use LED lights that give off a very bad orange light.

PORTRAITS┐

Of course everyone's favorite part! Don't worry babe, we got you! As previously noted, we won't keep you for an hour, when you can enjoy one another privately or even your guests. We encourage you to take time with us for sunset and your photo goals will come true. If you're unsure of sunset times around your date - head to google and type in the date + sunset time and problem solved. Additionally we will probably pull you for flash photos because why not + they'll be some of your favorite photos! If you're doing a first look. Chances are family will be done prior to ceremony so after ceremony there is more than enough time for the both of you.

Family photos for us don't take too long - so don't worry you won't be awkwardly taking photos for long periods of time. You will receive a questionnaire that lets us know exactly which photos matter the most to you in regards to family. We recommend doing immediate family only as our questionnaire goes hand in hand with this guide and by keeping things smooth we shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

ALL GOOD NIGHTS COME TO AN END BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE HAVE TO HAVE A BASIC ENDING TO A PRETTY NIGHT.
