I photographed my first wedding in 2002 so it’s safe to say that I’ve photographed A LOT of weddings over the years and Julia and David’s first look was one of the most precious first looks that I have ever had the honor to witness. These moments reaffirm why I do what I do. I just love the contrast of Julia’s excitement coupled with David trying to keep it together. And, I won’t lie, I definitely teared up in the moment AND again going through the photos later. I challenge you to not do the same!

Isn’t this view from the Indigo in downtown Asheville gorgeous?
These two are so perfect for each other that they both planned surprise gifts for each other!
