Blanc Denver Wedding

While I understand that it’s tradition to get ready separately on a wedding day (for reasons ancient and bizarre), I’ve always felt that it creates artificial jitters. After all, this tradition takes you away from your person. The one you lock eyes with across the room to share an inside joke with a mere look. The one you unconsciously reach out for when the turbulence on the plane gets just a little too rough. The one you’re choosing to spend the rest of your life with.

And that’s why I’m a huge fan of the first look. It’s non-traditional, sure. But you know who you’re marrying so there’s no risk that anyone’s father oversold their attractiveness (if this comment confuses you, click the link above). In our modern day weddings, a first look lets you reunite with your person so that you can let those artificial butterflies fly free.

Which is precisely what we saw with Jamie and Gooch at their Blanc Denver wedding. As we began our jaunt around RiNo for portraits, they gave us the usual line we hear from couples: “You’re going to have to help us because we’re not good in front of the camera.” This, my friends, was a big fat LIE. Because after the first look, they slipped easily into a comfortable presence, which resulted in effortlessly cool portraits, even as scores of passersby shouted good wishes.

Jamie and Gooch, thank you so much for including us in your wedding day! You were a dream to work with and we wish you the best on your new adventures!
