First Look Photos

I know I’ve said it before but I spend A LOT of time looking at wedding blogs and inspiration online. I think Scott is the only person that has even an inkling of how much I wedding-blog stalk. Anywho, now that we’ve established my level of crazy, I have to say that up until now, I’ve never been huge into wedding photography and usually skip past anything wedding photographer-related unless the pictures are really, truly amazing things I’ve never seen before; however, there’s something about first look photos that get me every time. So here I sat, reading blogs today and I found myself tearing up at my desk when I saw these (could have been the pictures with a little added PMS but bear with me) – photos taken the first time the bride and groom get to see each other on the wedding day. Here are a few pics that would have made me cry like a baby if I was at home…luckily for Scott, this time I wasn’t…

This picture is just too sweet…

There’s something about photos that capture that first moment of the bride and groom seeing each other that just makes me teary. It’s just such a sweet romantic moment and I’m definitely a sucker for romance! I can’t imagine how I’m going to react when it’s my turn, especially considering the fact that pictures of total strangers can make me cry like a little girl. I get a little flutter of excitement and nervousness in my stomach thinking about seeing Scott on our wedding day for the first time. It makes me giggly thinking about the look on his face when we catch our first glance of each other, it’ll be a moment I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

….great, now I’m all ferclemped. Tissue please!
