Camp 7 Hills Wedding |  Holland, New York Alternative Wedding Photographers

Did you know you can have your wedding at a Camp Site? Meagan and Jay were planning on having a backyard wedding but when the realized the work that went into renting tents, bathrooms, etc, they opted to start looking for alternative locations that had the same feel of a backyard wedding. They came across Camp 7 Hills in Holland, NY and it was a perfect fit! For most of the summer season it operates as a Girl Scouts Camp, but it wraps up in early August and is available for events afterward.  Meagan & Jay decided to have everything on site from getting ready to ceremony to reception. They finished up with some great lawn games for weddings: KUBB, Cornhole, Bocce Ball, & Kan JamBuffalo Wedding & Portrait Photography

More and More, we’ve having couples choosing to do things out of the ordinary at their wedding. Meagan & Jay’s wedding served as a reminder to us that we don’t need to do things the way everyone else does them just because. Meagan and Jay knew what was important to them and they did things their way, not compromising any bit of their wedding for preconceived notions of what SHOULD be. Want to get ready in the same bunk? Do it! Don’t want a bridal party? Don’t have one! Want to see each other before your ceremony because it makes things a little less jittery? Have a first look and , See each other!  Don’t want to cut into a cake? Order yourselves some Paula’s Donuts and bite into them when no one’s looking.

Make your own rules.

First Look Wedding Photos | Buffalo Wedding Photographers

So…. what exactly is a First Look? A first look is when a couple opts to see each other BEFORE their ceremony. Either to relieve pressure of walking down the aisle OR to make extra time for portraits before a later ceremony OR just because you’re traveling to the ceremony together. Whatever the reason may be, first looks are a fun and intimate way to see each other for the first time on your wedding day.  Some other positives: you complete portraits before your ceremony so you can enjoy cocktail hour with your guests. Oh, and your hair and makeup is at it’s freshest for photos.

So how will you do your first look? You can opt for a “butt pinch”, a back to back, a walk and greet, or whatever other creative plan you have stirring inside you. Here are a few peeks at some of the moments RIGHT before our clients’ first looks. Ahhhhh…the anticipation!

(For the back to back couples, we led them blindly to where they needed to stand and had them wait!).
