lauren & joe's 1st look; nelson wedding photographer

Joe watched the water, waiting.
Lauren hiked up her gown & braved the forest path, smiling.

They placed their backs together, holding hands and turned to see each other for the first time.  Except it wasn't their first time.  Lauren and Joe have shared a thousand glances and stolen a thousand kisses.  They have studied, moved house, acquired fur babies and paid bills together.

But their first wedding look was special.  Their shared history only seemed to add to their moment as they smooched like teenagers and held onto one another for dear life.

(Lauren was surprised that Joe held his composure for the first look and secretly held out hopes for her walk down the aisle.  Stay tuned to see if Joe kept his composure for the ceremony;)
