Bride Exhales Before First Look

At most weddings, the bride and groom choose to see each other before the ceremony.

I ensure that these first looks are special moments and private where possible. For this couple's hotel wedding, the bride was nervous about seeing her soon-to-be husband. I was preparing to photograph the moment itself when I was lucky and captured the bride's huge sigh.

She puffed out her cheeks, blew out through her mouth, and took her first steps toward the groom. Moments later, she tapped the man she would soon marry on his shoulder and he turned and saw her for the first time in her wedding dress.
