The Sweetest Moment Of Any Wedding Day

There are so many benefits to capturing a first look — when the betrothed see each other before the ceremony — that it has pretty much become standard in wedding photography. I prefer a subtle, not overly-choreographed first look, with only the couple shot in an area that's as private as possible. 

I’ve found people tend not to react as honestly when they feel they are being watched. The groom is usually positioned first, set up to look away from where the bride will be entering the room. In this case, I loved the white wall at Ojai Valley Inn, which provided a clean, neutral background. Click on to see the sweet moment for yourself.
