Father sees his daughter for the first time as a bride
Barbara Ann Studios

Chateau Laurier Winter Wedding

Get your Kleenex out. I am a big time daddy's little girl. Even now I am. I mostly likely will be for the rest of my life and I am more than ok with that. I didn't know how powerful of a moment this was going to be for the father. However, at the end of this, we were all crying, me included. AS a photographer there is a fine line between how close is too close. I wanted to get close enough to feel the emotion but not too close so that I invaded their moment. The prayer room that is the backdrop for this first look moment was extremely special as well so I wanted to incorporate into the frame.  I highly recommend having this type of first look for your parents and yourself (including grooms). As a parent, I can only imagine what I will be like emotionally when I see my sons all dressed up on their wedding days. Let your photographer know when these moments will take place and where because I truly believe it is so important for both yourself and your parents. Having these moments documented will bring you huge amounts of joy for years after your wedding day.
