Wedding Week: First Look

 I have to say that having a first look was something I struggled with. I really did not want to take away from the specialness of David seeing me walk down the aisle for the first time. That being said we decided anyway to do a first look and I am so happy we did. It really was our only alone time during our wedding and the photos are some of my absolute favorite! Plus I blubbered like a baby through my vows - so I am happy we got some good pics before hand. We took a lot - but I will try and narrow it down to a select few.  The talent behind the lens is Rob Skog with Jennifer Skog Photographers. I honestly thought it was dream to have him photograph our wedding. In fact I even went through a little drama with another photographer (a different person than the person who did our engagement photos) - I cancelled our contract and asked for a refund - because I knew there was no one else I wanted to take our photos. I am SO GLAD I followed my instinct even though it was a hard one. The original photographer we scheduled oozed talent as well - but I knew in my heart of hearts that I needed to follow my gut. She was gracious enough to refund our deposit and we were able to proceed with my dream photographer.

It's the first time I really stuck to my guns on something - I am so happy I did!
waiting...
 Most girls tap their husband to be on the shoulder...nope I slapped him on the booty!
 The above photo is my absolute favorite
We used the above photo for our thank you cards.
 A close second for favorite above - pure joy is radiating between us. I wish I could bottle up that emotion!

Check back tomorrow for the reception!

  4. These are absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to do a first look, but Zack was adamant that he didn't want to see me until I walked down the aisle. I'm fine that we didn't, but I don't think I would have been disappointed if we did either! I am seriously in awe of these photos.

  5. After seeing this I wish I had done a first look! But we would not have had the amazing background you had. I really did want to do one, especially since our wedding was at 6pm in December so it was pitch black dark when it started, but Theo was really against it. You know the whole bad luck crap. You guys look so happy together! I just can't get over how gorgeous these pictures are!!
