Hyatt Regency Hotel, Cambridge, MA :: Boston Wedding Photographer :: Neeta + Rich (Part II)

Welcome back to Neeta & Rich's first look pictures in the Empress Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MA.

The whole concept of the first look is that you get to have a private little moment with your significant other before they become your spouse. Hair and make up is fresh, you don't have to wait until 6pm at night to see each other on a day that is all about the two of you, you have more time with your wedding party and family AND you get to enjoy cocktail hour, what's not to love?

And this was SUCH a great first look! We set Rich in position, looking out over the city, this is actually his reflection in the wall:

Neeta entered and carefully stepped down the stairs towards her almost-husband:

Rich waited patiently:

And then they saw each other and Rich was a combination of speechless and flabergasted alternating between saying "Oh my God, Oh my Gosh, You are SO freakin' beautiful" and just LOOKING at Neeta:

Rich spun Neeta around so he could see her properly and her gown swirled out as she moved. And just wait until you see the first dance pictures.....

On a scale of one to ten how happy do you think Rich was?

Hello shoes:

It only seemed appropriate to have at least one dipping picture. I like to think of myself as a full-service photographer and to that end I posted how to achieve the perfect dip **here**, I think Neeta and Rich DID practise:

We had a teeny tiny block of time in the schedule before we had to meet up with everyone for wedding party and family pictures so we pootled around the hotel, I kind of like the random waiter in the background:

I call this image "Love In An Elevator"

And I don't have a name for this picture but I really really like it:

  2. AWWWWWWwwwww!!!!! Leah, these photos are SO beautiful!!! I can't believe how well they turned out! I am so in love with all of them! The dip photo is stunning! Well, they all are... we are loving every single one of them!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    I have a feeling our album might end up being a hundred pages long... I don't think we can choose from all the great photos you have taken!!!!

    I can't wait to see more tomorrow!!!!

  3. Leah, the elevator pictures are FANTASTIC!!!!! I can't get over them. The first look photos are just stunning too.

  4. @Kate - Thank you ;) I'm looking forward to your bamboo pics...maybe tomorrow or Thursday?

    @Neeta - yay!!! So happy you like your pictures. I was doing a little happy dance as they were downloading as I was also really pleased how a lot of them turned out. Ceremony is looking great but just WAIT for the dancing spectacularness (new word). I think we might have to tak about doing multiple volumes of wedding albums for you ;)

    @Christy Huge thanks to you for being such an amazing wedding coordinator and for keeping everything to plan so that we had enough time to get all of these pictures!

  5. Leah,

    These photos are absolutely incredible! Neeta and Rich look amazing! I can't believe how awesome the elevator photo is! What a fun look at before the wedding. Can't wait for the rest!


  6. absolutely gorgeous! LOVE the pink shoes, shot of her hands with the Henna, the dip shot and of course the shot of her just about to put on her dress! I definitely got misty eyed when I saw the 'first look' pictures of them and heck I don't even know the couple! You captured their love, so cheers to you again Leah!

  7. Oh we TOTALLY approve! This dipping shot was spectacular!

    What a stunning wedding. Congratulations to the bride and groom!

    Leah we just adore you.
