Clean white prep space and a beautiful first look- two of my favorite things about Ashley and Joel’s wedding day. Nothing make a photographer happier than a fresh white bathroom to photograph a bride in. I couldn’t have asked for a better space. The flooding light through the windows only highlighted Ashley’s joy for marrying her high school sweetheart. Ashley and Joel decided the day before to do the first look and I am so glad they did! They cried together then and they cried together while walking down the aisle. A father presenting his daughter as a bride to her groom is so special that even a first look can’t take away that joy and emotion. Break tradition, see each other before-you only get this day once.
