While it’s a little unusual for brides and grooms getting married here in Pittsburgh to see each other before their wedding ceremony, it’s not highly unusual. Yet Kristen & Brandon’s first look WAS very unusual. Until this wedding, every first look I’ve seen happened primarily because of the wedding day schedule. If you’re having a 5pm ceremony, you don’t have a lot of time for pictures, so it makes sense to do them before the wedding. But Kristen and Brandon’s ceremony was at 2:30pm and they had LOTS of time for pictures between the ceremony and reception. They decided to do a first look anyway. Why? Because they just really wanted to see each other! And after seeing the way they both lit up when they were together, I could completely understand why. Any aspect of nervousness just disappeared once they were together.
Kristen & Brandon’s movie was shot by myself and Nicki Dembski on Canon 7Ds and 5D Mark IIs and edited by me using Adobe Premiere Pro. – Christina Many, many thanks to Kristen & Brandon’s photography team, Elizabeth and John Craig of Craig Photography for working so closely with us.
