Fall is on its way here and we could not be more thrilled! There is a plethora of benefits to getting married in the fall. There is the gorgeous foliage, the frequently temperate weather, seasonally-inspired decor, and possible off-season discounts to take advantage of. It is the perfect time to tie the knot! Here are Grand Lens Photography's 5 fall wedding tips to consider while planning your special day!
While we are extreme fanatics for first looks during a wedding day, we understand that some couples prefer to wait until the altar to see each other. Nevertheless, there are various ways to connect pre-ceremony without having to break tradition! There are a couple of reasons you might want to consider one of these first look alternatives. First, your wedding day goes by faster than you can say “I do,” so any time you are able to spend alone becomes exceptionally cherished. An alternative to a first look gives you the opportunity to take a deep breath and enjoy each other’s company, even if you are not seeing one another’s face.
The second reason is in regards to your wedding photos. Arranging a first look provides your photographer with a chance to capture more portraits of you together without interrupting a definite wedding day timeline. Whether you decide to do a standard first look or one of these first look alternatives, those photos will truly become several of your all-time favorites due to the intimacy, emotion, and excitement you will come to appreciate every time you view them! Without further ado, here are 3 of Grand Lens Photography's "first look" alternatives.
