Logan and Becky are getting married this weekend in the Portland LDS Temple. Weddings there are lovely (I know; Will and I were married there thirteen years ago!), but the one thing that I always miss is that the moment that the groom sees the bride for the first time isn’t documented. It’s one of my very favorite moments during the wedding day. And so with LDS brides and grooms, we often do a “first look” a few days before the wedding at a picturesque location so that we can still capture that moment. There’s also the bonus of additional wedding pictures!
Logan and Becky have known each other since their first year at college, but life took some detours, including a mission for Becky to New York City. But all along there has been an amazing connection and when Becky came home from her mission early this summer, they knew that they were ready to make the leap into marriage. They are such a darling couple that photographing these sweet moments, knowing that in just a few days they would be sealed, was something that I really loved capturing. And it also worked out perfectly because the day of their wedding the always unpredictable Northwest weather surprised everyone and poured! Even though Logan didn’t have his suit yet (though I think he looks pretty adorable in his dungarees) these will still be a lovely addition to their wedding set.
