I’m a fan of first looks…for a lot of reasons. However, sometimes a couple has something special planned that trumps even the best of reasons. I almost felt like I was setting up a secret meeting between the heads of state in the the deepest levels of the white house. Melanie and Joseph wanted to have a prayer together, but not see each other. The biggest problem was due to a couple delays, people showing up early, and people being setup all throughout the church it took a lot of room clearing and door locking/unlocking.
We finally found a spot that was private enough to do what they were wanting, would allow us to capture the moment in the best way, and that we could actually get to without bumping into guests.
In the end things tend to work out.
