There've been moments I’ve held my breath and hoped for a miracle arriving to a location, only to discover there’s not a lot to work with. Other times, I’ve let out a sigh of relief, knowing what’s in front of me is a workable space to get creative. Finding a location for a First Look can be a daunting prospect.

In this video, I'll explain what goes into finding that perfect location, all while considering a bride's requests, if applicable.
