Day 10: 12 Days of Pictures- Favorite Wedding Moments of 2009

On the 10th day of pictures my camera gave to me... favorite "first look" moments.

The tradition of the bride and groom not seeing each other before the wedding began back in days of arranged marriages. The bride's family hid her away from the groom and under a veil until the marriage was official for fear that the groom would take one look at his bride to be and run the other way if he didn't find her attractive.

Today, most marriages are no longer arranged and many brides & grooms are abandoning tradition and superstition and seeing each other before the wedding. And, when they do we like to set up a "first look" where we can capture both the bride's and groom's expressions when they see each other for the first time. Here are two favorites from a couple first look moments.

This one is from Jen & Ryan's wedding this past September.

And this one was from Tammy & Greg's wedding the same weekend as Jen & Ryan's.
