Can someone point me to some good photographic examples of a couple’s "seeing each other for the first time" moment pre-cermony?
I am a beginning photographer and I am doing a friend’s wedding photos next month and I would like to show her some examples of how a photographer is able to capture that intimate moment without being too intrusive. (She is trying to decide whether or not she wants that moment photographed or if it should be private.)
Thanks in advance!

I would suggest a little photography blog stalking. If you search the boards here, you’ll find some of the best in the biz. It will also give both of you great ideas. You can always shoot it and not share it with anyone.
My photographer has a picture of a groom waiting for his bride that is way too sweet.

Those photographers are awesome!! Sorry, I get excited looking at really cool pictures. 🙂 And your right, the photo of the groom waiting for his bride is priceless.

Message me and I will send you some from my best friend’s wedding. They turned out really well.

Try Lina Jang. She and her team are totally in synch, coordinating the moment too. (Her assistant on my wedding even knew when she said "we’ll be there in 10 minutes"…it really meant 20.)
I think a big key in the photos she took of us was that there were two photogs — one to capture my reaction, and one to capture FI’s; you could see me approaching from two angles, pretty neat!

I am having a meeting for just the Groom and myself prior to the weddiing photos. We decided we wanted that private moment.
Then we will join the bridal party and photographer for our pictures.

If you can find Bobby Earl’s website (he will post on this sooner or later with his link) he has some very sweet photos of the groom tearing up when he sees the bride.
We are having the "presentation moment" photographed but also private, in that we will do it before the ceremony, probably with just my sister and FI’s brother, who are standing up for us, and our parents. And the photographers, of course, who will actually be there from about two hours before the ceremony to photograph all the getting ready. We want to have photos of the moment; we just don’t want the moment to occur in front of the entire audience. Then we will be a little better collected when I walk down the aisle.

Thanks for all of the suggestions everyone!
