First Look Wedding Photographs

First Look Wedding Photography by Atlanta Artistic Weddings

I love weddings!!!  It is such a honor being a Atlanta wedding photographer.  The thing I love about weddings is capturing the excitement and emotion of the day.  One of the most tender moments of the wedding day is the look of the groom when he sees his bride in her wedding dress for the first time.  There is much anticipation though out the day that leads you up to this!

A lot of bride and grooms want to do as much wedding photography done before the ceremony as they can so they can quickly go to the reception.  So in order to do they will see each other before the wedding.  In order to keep the excitement and emotions there they will do a "first look".  A first look is when the photographer will arrange the groom in position where he will have his back to the bride when she approaches.  So when the bride comes up behind him like in this photo she can gently tap him on the shoulder and he will turn around and see her in her wedding dress for the very first time.  It can be a very emotional time for both of them.  They have been waiting for this moment for their whole life!  It is one of my favorite shots of a wedding.  You can see how they become so giddy with excitement!

The number one thing I say to every bride and groom is that this is your wedding day.  So it is up to you if you want a first look or even want to see each other before the wedding.  I just want to capture your wedding day and the moments that make up your big day.  So that you can look back at your wedding photos and those special memories will come flooding back.

A great toast at any wedding comes from the heart

Father of the Bride Toast

As a Atlanta wedding photographer I have had the honor of shooting hundreds of weddings.  People often ask what my favorite part of a wedding is.  I always say the toast.  That is where you really get to know the couple.  There have been many of time where I have had to hold back tears listening to very emotional speeches from their family and friends.  One of my most memorable moments have been the toast from the father to his daughter on her wedding day.  It is a very moving moment for all when you have a great speech.

This particular wedding had a great couple of great toasts.  They were true testimonials on how thoughtful they are to their friends and family.   I particular remember these toasts because they were so heartfelt.  Her father was particularly eloquent.  You can tell he reflected on his daughter's childhood and her future and shared it with the guests and couple.  The best toasts come from the heart and this one knocked it out of the park.  When you look at the photo and the way he holds up his glass and looks at the couple you can feel well wishes spilling over.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.  I hope you read more of the Atlanta Artistic Wedding blog section.  I would love to hear from you!  Leave me a note or drop me a line in the contact section at Atlanta Artistic Weddings.
