Sneak Peek - Part 2

Jake and I decided to see each other before the ceremony and it was the best decision we ever made. We took all of our portraits, as well as bridal party and family pictures ahead of time. After the ceremony, we didn't have to worry about any posed pictures because they were all DONE - we just got to party and enjoy cocktail hour! I know some people want to wait until the ceremony to see their husbands for the first time for traditions sake, but I would totally recommend seeing each other ahead of time and having a "first look" photo session. It was very personal to see J ahead of time, and very emotional. 

Here's a few of the professional preview pics:
This is right as we first saw each other - we were both like "Hi!"
I have to admit - I did get a little bit emotional and I started to cry a tiny bit
Happy again
This is one of my favorites so far - love the black and white!
Walking to take portraits - love Jake's face in this one (and it's a good shot of my dress!)
Kissing my shoulder 
This is Jake's favorite. I love the lighting on this one and how it seems like we're in a deep forest (which we weren't)

Every time I look at the photos, I just get so excited and anxious to see ALL of them!!! Tomorrow I'll post bridal party portraits and detail shots!!

My fiance and I are going to do the "first moment" pics. I want to get the formal pics DONE and I like the idea of having our own private moment :)
