Ronnie & Rachel got hitched in March and I just loved working with them. One thing I adored about their big day was their choice to do a first look. I can't say it enough--first looks are the way to go! They did the first look at the Mandalay Canal in Irving, off-site of their ceremony & reception space at Noah's Event Center. Not only does it give the bride & groom a chance to have a very personal moment together, but it gave us ample time to do their portraits and also the bridal party portraits in an awesome location BEFORE the ceremony. We definitely would have run out of natural light had we waited until after the ceremony and not had as many options for the fun group shots.
Another plus? You two get to share your genuine thoughts and affections with each other away from the wedding day action and not when your in front of 100+ guests :) Sounds perfectly romantic to me!
