Joy and Phillip’s big day was absolutely perfect from start to finish.  It was a typical July day – hot with the occasional rain shower – but every time we planned to get some shots outside the rain stopped, almost as though they had a remote control on the weather.

This was the first wedding I’ve done where the bride and groom saw each other before the ceremony, and it was magical.  The two of them being able to share that moment privately was so sweet, and they both seemed to lose the nerves after that moment and got to enjoy the rest of the day.  Tradition is fantastic, and if you’re determined to wait to see your groom until you walk down the aisle then that’s the perfect choice for you – but if you’re considering doing the first look beforehand, I think you’ll love it.
