Fridays with Emerald Stone [Wk.3] Saying YES or NO to a First Look

Happy happy BEAUTIFUL Friday everyone!! I can’t believe this gorgeous weather in February! Even better, I get to shoot an amazing outdoor engagement session in downtown Frederick today in this weather! 🙂 So excited!

Today I am blogging on First Looks. I have so many bride-to-be’s ask me the question  “what do you think about a first look, we’re undecided?” While many brides stay traditional and want the first time their groom to see them to be walking down the aisle, other brides look forward to that moment they can see each other dressed for their wedding just the two of them to make it more intimate. So while it’s totally up to you on what is important to you for your big day, I’ve posted my thoughts below! I hope this helps in your big decision to have a first look, or not! ❤

Fridays with Emerald Stone [Wk.1]

Happy Friday everyone! At the beginning of the year I decided to commit to a weekly blog –  and it’s starting TODAY! I will be blogging every Friday about business, wedding, engagements and photography. I’m inviting all of you to post in the comments anything you’d like me to blog about under those categories. This blog is for YOU! My amazing followers, clients & friends. I can’t wait to hear from you all!

Today I just want to say THANK YOU!! Thank you for your support, sharing, referrals, and continued business. This week has truly been amazing. I’ve had several entries in my Engagement Giveaway (if you haven’t entered yet there’s still time! You won’t want to miss out!), and booked THREE weddings this week – 2 for 2017 and 1 for 2018! I am seriously feeling so blessed to have such amazing clients! I can’t say it enough how much I love what I do.
