Joanne & Jake opted to do a FIRST LOOK. This is where the couple see one another prior to the ceremony. As Jewish wedding ceremonies tend to be later on in the day this is a fantastic opportunity to do creative couple portraits when there is still available light. The couple would see each other before the main ceremony during the Bedeken anyways.

    It is wonderful to see how the hair and make-up we did translates onto the photographs. They all looked gorgeous. It was a pleasure working with you Chanelle, and we at Evolve hope to have the honour doing so again, in the near future. The photos are incredible. Jackie, as usual, always an privilege working with you.
    Blessings to the bride and groom
