Trevor and Siri chose to do their beautiful first look session at Le Jardin. Their photographer, Jordan Burningham said,
“The session was a dream, it definitely shows in every image. Their love, joy, excitement and happiness, was what made this session come alive. I am super excited for these to love birds. It was a honor to capture this special moment for them. So they could look back on these beautiful genuine images and have a laugh, a smile or a watery eye of joy. It was definitely one of my favorite sessions I have ever done. ”
First Look Sessions: Why You Should Consider Doing One
Record the Emotion
One reason to do a first look session is that it will record the love, excitement, happiness and joy that you’re sure to feel when you see the person you’ll be spending your eternity with in their wedding attire. A first look session will give you the time to soak it all in.
While your wedding day will be filled with love and happiness, it will also include many distractions ranging from family and friends who will need your attention to potential problems that may require decisions from you. A first look session makes sure that the two of you get to appreciate each other without interference.
