Should we do a First Look?

The First Look at your Wedding

The First Look is a trend of the last 8 or 9 years that has really taken off. It was developed by one of the world’s leading wedding photographers as a way to, essentially, get more hours in a day. By seeing each other two hours before your ceremony, it allows photographers more time to make amazing portraits of the two of you. To help you, here are some pros and cons of doing a First Look and a few things to keep in mind when making your decision.

Wedding at The Garrison - A+D

Amanda and Dan got married on September 23 at The Garrison in Garrison, NY. They have been together for over ten years, and have built an amazing network of families and friends that we are honored to be a part of. Before the wedding, Amanda found out that she had cancer and Dan called us right away to schedule their connection session. She wanted to have their session immediately because one week later she was having surgery. And so we all went out in the bitter cold of February and took some of my favorite pictures ever. We laughed. We learned about each other. We told stories. We took damn good pictures. They are both such awesome and amazing people.

Red Maple Vineyard Wedding | converse. horses. lots of laughter.

Ben and Lindsey were married on October 1, 2016 with their ceremony and reception at Red Maple Vineyard. The day dawned cool and rainy. I met the girls at the hotel for hair and makeup before we headed out to the venue to get her dressed. Lindsey and her entire wedding party wore matching Converse Chucks - so cool.

Being a Red Maple Vineyard Wedding Photographer is amazing because there is this room upstairs at the venue that has just the most amazing stained glass windows stretched across the back wall. I had Lindsey get ready in front of those windows so we could capture her beautiful dress up against those stunning colors. Once she was ready, we did a first look with her dad. It was super emotional. They have a really tight bond that's totally visible in the way they look at each other. There is something so special about a father-daughter first look... witnessing that moment when a Father sees his little girl all grown up is so touching. I may have totally cried too.
