Fabulous Friday: Why Everything is Better in Black & White

Black and white photographs are timeless, classic, and absolutely breathtaking! There's a reason all antique wedding pics look so stunning, and have remained a staple for photographers and couples everywhere. Black and white's capture the raw emotion of the moment, and focus on the simplicity and love behind every picture. Whether five years from now or fifty, these photos are sure to be classic and elegant years after you say "I do". We love seeing the photos from our weddings, and here's just a few to prove why everything is better in black and white...

Planning Tip Tuesday: The First Look

One of our favorite moments is the first time the bride + groom see each other on their wedding day! After months of planning, prepping, and primping, the groom can finally see his gorgeous bride in that long white dress. This is a priceless moment that you and your hubby can cherish forever. Whether you're a traditional bride waiting to walk down the aisle, or you're opting for a private first look with your groom, make sure to have your photographer capture this extra special shot for you!

Here are some of our favorite first look shots from Pure Luxe Bride Weddings...
