“First Look” | Kristen & Ryan | 9.5.2010 | Erie, Pa Wedding Photography

The past few days have been a complete whirlwind….I honestly can’t believe I packed as much as I did into a 3 day period…Friday feels like it was a lifetime ago! Wedding season is definitely still in full swing for me, and WHAT a way to end the weekend.  Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Kristen & Ryan’s wedding day.  I’ll be posting a full blog later in the week, but in the meantime I thought it would be fitting for your FIRST LOOK at the images to be images of their FIRST LOOK of each other.  If you’re unfamiliar, “first look” is an option that more and more couples are taking in order to give them an intimate moment prior to their ceremony to see each other.  Capturing the groom’s reaction while the bride is walking down the aisle is tough to swing….so opting for  “first look” pictures allows the photographer to really capture the emotions between the bride and groom, and for them to have a private moment before the craziness begins. It’s becoming more and more popular, and with good reason! Here’s a visual step-by-step of Kristen & Ryan’s special moment…

STEP 1:  Pre-first-look-texting….making it all happen

Step 2:  We had to hide Kristen in the stairwell until we heard the elevator…

Step 3: He’s coming!!! Ohhh the anticipation!!  {P.S. Isn’t she just the cutest thing!?!}

Step 4::Time for the reaction!!! We brought Kristen out from the stairwell and around the corner…and here are Ryan’s expressions. Love it!

Step 5:  Her reaction. She fixes his hair! Hahaha!

Step 6: Annnd here they are!!!  Beautiful couple, inside and out!

There’ll be MUCH more posting on this wedding….I’m just gushing over all of these amazing shots that I have to pour through. In the meantime, CONGRATULATIONS Ryan & Kristen!!!
