Breanna & Devin
He stood still, looking down at his hands, waiting to see his soon to be wife in her wedding dress for the first time. “What should I do when she comes?” he asked Dallin nervously. Dallin responded with, “Whatever is most comfortable. This is a moment for just the two of you.” As Breanna walked toward Devin and called out his name, you could tell that the nerves had melted away and everything was about just the two of them. In that moment we could tell that these two were a perfect match. This Thanksgiving Point formal session was going to be perfect; we knew it from the moment of their first look.
Thankgiving Point was the site of Breanna and Devin’s favorite date, so it was only fitting to return for a Thanksgiving Point formal session. Originally, their session was supposed to be a few weeks earlier, but a gigantic rain storm caused us to reschedule. We’re so glad we did too, because the golden sunlight was absolutely radiant, the flowers were beginning to bloom, and we had an incredible session! At the end of this Thanksgiving Point formal session we were even able to catch a ride on a golf cart up to the visitor’s center. If you haven’t seen Breanna and Devin’s wedding or engagement session, check them out!
We owe a big thank you to Hailey Gomez for helping us out with hair and makeup last minute when we had to reschedule. She did an amazing job, getting ready pictures were a blast, and Breanna was flawless!
We love doing first looks. Those moments are as candid as can be, and is also a memory that is so special to look back on. Traditionally the first time that a groom sees his bride is when he is at the alter and she walks to him down the aisle. That moment in time is filled with expectations, pressure and a bit of anxiety, especially for the groom. All eyes are on him to see what he’ll do. Will he cry? Will he smile? It creates a really stressful moment for a groom. When a first look happens before the wedding day, a groom has the chance to get those emotions out without anyone watching. Then when his bride does walk down the aisle, there is less pressure between them and he can act more genuine. With couples getting married in LDS temples, the only opportunity they have to have a first look is at a formal session before the wedding.
