Best of the First Look from 2013

Time for another best of for you all. In this post it’s a bunch of “first looks” from our 2013 wedding season. Shooting first looks are pretty popular with our brides and grooms, if I had to guess it’s probably a 50/50 split. There are certainly benefits to doing a first look and if ever I push them it’s based solely around having daylight I can use to give you  (hopefully) killer images. So lets check out a little compilation of 2013’s first looks!


Jessica & Tim’s first look at the Crooked Lake House.
How could he not smile like that? She took everyone’s breath away.
Julia & Jon did their first look in the Yaddo Gardens..

I loved this spot for Alaina & Jared‘s first look.
