Alexandra and Yaser’s First Look

Category : Various · (12) Comments October 3, 2013

Alexandra and Yaser met at university, and it was love. Alexandra comes from Russia, Yaser from Iraq, and their families couldn’t be at the wedding. By arranging a First Look photoshoot they were able to send poignant photos to their families and in that way include them in the ceremony.

If you don’t know what a First Look is, it’s a wonderfully romantic, fun way to celebrate that moment when you see each other for the first time at your wedding. It happens a few days or hours before the wedding and means that you take the pressure off your wedding day. It also frees you up to spend more time with family on the actual day.

Congratulations to the lovely couple!

Thank you both! I’m so glad you like them. They were a lovely couple to photograph and it was a magical day. If you want more information about First Looks, I think Jasmine Star invented them. There is lots of stuff on her website about them;

    These new profiles suck and you should feel bad about them. Just because subscriptions and channel visits have gone up since December 2011 doesn't mean anything. Are you aware the old profile design was still an option for users until about a week ago? You people are stupid.

    not a bad build,but disagree about graphics cards,photoshop uses opengl which is used on your graphics card,i would opt for a middle of the road graphics card,i currently use the ati hd4850 but the newer cards would do your system justice,also i would suggest ditching windows 7 in favour of osx lion and windows in bootcamp.
