The Allure LaPorte is another of the local venues I work often and love. Rachel and Quinn Had a perfectly planned schedule. I had time to arrive and get some photos of the girls getting ready and details of the beautiful hall and ceremony area. Rachel and Quinn chose to do a first look so we could get all the photos out of the way before the ceremony. I never tell a couple what to do, but there are many advantages to this when time is short between the ceremony and reception.
I love the door on the old chapel next door to The Allure. It has a rustic look and is always well lit in the afternoon with the sun hidden behind the building. It helps that I know The Allure well after years of working there. More importantly it helped that these two are so in love and so easy to photograph together. AS I photographed their first look I felt like I was truly stealing sacred moments with my camera.
Here are a few favorites from a wonderful day at The Allure.
