Riviera wedding photographer CaliforniaTaryn and Mat included their beloved dogs in their wedding by getting them the cutest collars and cuff links made specifically for dogs. Of course they were in the wedding colors of purple and teal! Like most people with dogs, theirs were very important to them, although they did not actually walk down the aisle, so made sure to make time for this image before the ceremony. Taryn and Mat opted to do a "first look". Although I never push clients to do one if they do not wish to, I highly recommend doing it. It really helps to set the tone for the entire day. Along with Artisan's help, we made first look special, so the first time the groom see's the bride is a very special moment, just as it would be if he was seeing her in her dress for the first time coming down the aisle. The advantage to doing a stated first look is that we can accomplish all of the couples photographs before the ceremony, with ample time, so its a very relaxed and un-rushed.
