Our last wedding of October was an excellent high to end our season on. Ellie, said she wanted to do something a little different: a first look and all the formal pictures taken before the ceremony.
“Oh, we’ve done first looks before,” I assured her. “They are so much fun!”
“Not just the first look,” she explained, “We want to do all of our formals before the ceremony – so we go from ceremony to receiving line to reception.”
“Oh!” I said surprised, “we can do that!”.
This was the smartest wedding decision we’ve encountered yet. Seriously.
This allowed for a very unhurried formal picture time with lots of room for creative-spur-of-the-moment ideas from the wedding party, Ellie and Andrew, and of course – Brown Eyed Photography!
So thanks to Ellie and Andrew’s experience I just might be mentioning this option to every wedding client since!
Ellie is like a sister I never knew I had. She was just so authentic and enthusiastic about the photography aspect of her wedding. Andrew is a quiet gentle soul …. or so he wants you to think. He’s also super silly and a lot of fun to be with. The two together – it couldn’t be more fun. I discovered this during their engagement shoot where we had fun walking around the farm Andrew works at. I could.not.wait for their wedding day!
Here are a whole bunch of images so you can see for yourself how incredible this day was!
