We did a “first look” shot of wedding photos with Kelly and Jim that really turned out special. We positioned Jim looking out over the cliffs and toward the ocean, then Kelly walked up to him from behind and tapped him on the shoulder. When Jim turned around, he was seeing Kelly for the first time in her wedding dress. Everyone watching, including me, became teary-eyed. First looks offer great opportunities for photos and create a very intimate and emotional experience for a couple. We got more great shots that day because Kelly was truly a happy and glowing bride. The bridal party dressed at the Terranea Resort. The ceremony was at Wayfarers Chapel, the famous glass church on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, then on to gorgeous La Venta Inn for the reception. This wedding was a photographer’s dream as all three of these locations are favorites of mine.
