Pam & Trevor – First Look {Poplar Grove Plantation Hampstead & Wilmington NC Wedding Photographers}

Pam & Trevor opted for a “first look” to happen before their ceremony.  We didn’t have a ton of time for the creative session photos of the bride & groom & wedding party due to time restrictions of the plantation, so the best option was to have the couple see each other before the ceremony.  We scouted a cute spot with pretty light and stationed ourselves far enough away to give some privacy & then had Pam sneak up behind Trevor.  It was such a sweet moment!  Often times, this is the perfect option for getting the best & most natural images of the couple, especially if you need some extra photo time.  Afterward we were able to go ahead and get all the fun wedding party portraits taken care of so that after the ceremony any extra time was just icing on the cake!

From Pam… “We both feel that the first look did not take away from the ceremony but instead it worked out better to be able to take pictures before so that we could spend more time with our family and friends afterward.  Also, the first look was awesome because we were surprised when seeing each other and we did share a moment that we don’t think would have taken place in front of everyone, it was so sweet.  Trev and I were able to take each other in during the moments before everything unfolded… because it got pretty crazy after that with all the people to thank.”

  • Kayla - BEAUTIFUL! I love how they took their pics before and you were able to capture the “first look.” Often times it seems that through the fast paced nature of weddings, the first look isn’t always captured the way it should be. Especially when you are standing in front of an audience of people. This is a more-relaxed way of doing it and makes it more intimate between the couple. Wish I’d done my wedding this way. I LOVE THE PICS!ReplyCancel
