{First Looks}

What is a first look?

The first look!  As a photographer, when we hear that our couples are going to do one, we breathe a sigh of relief and thankfulness.  But many of you are probably thinking “What on Earth is a first look?!?”
If you are getting married or are helping someone plan a wedding, you have probably heard this phrase from your photographer or maybe have read it in an article or magazine.  Basically, the First Look is when the Bride and Groom have a few minutes alone together and see each other in their wedding attire before the ceremony.  First Looks are not only practical, but they are great for many reasons.  Here are our top three:
From a TIME perspective, when a couple does a first look on their wedding day, they are able to get a lot more portraits of the two of them. (The most important images of the day!)  After the First Look (which is photographed as well, and makes for some really sweet images, see below), we move into portraits of the couple.  The couple is more at ease because we have more time, guests aren’t waiting, and people aren’t watching them.  This gives us more time to be creative and get a lot of those images that you would love to have that you see in magazines and on Pinterest.
It is a PRIVATE moment that often CALMS nerves.  There can be a lot of stress and anxiety on a wedding day.  We often find that when the Bride sees her Groom, she immediately lets a lot of that go.  The Groom is a calming force for her and puts her at ease.  It is also an intimate time for the couple where they can be together alone for a few minutes before the craziness and whirlwind of activity sets in.
Back to the time perspective, often times if a First Look is being done, we will also do the wedding party pictures prior to the ceremony as well.  This drastically cuts down on the amount of pictures we have to do after the ceremony, meaning the couple can get to their reception a lot faster! Your guests will be thankful!

Here are some images from first looks that we have photographed:

{Reviews}

I always encourage couples who are interested in booking us for their wedding to read our reviews.  This gives them the opportunity to hear first hand from couples who we’ve worked with on their wedding.  They get to learn how we operate through the process from first contact to the delivery of your images.  We just received this review from one of our fall brides and it brought tears to our eyes.  We put our whole heart into our business and our couples and to be appreciated for it is so meaningful and rewarding to us.

“If you are currently contemplating who to hire as your wedding photographer, STOP HERE. Simply put, Corina & Jamey Fletcher were the best decision I made throughout this process of hiring vendors. They are not only professional and talented but they are amazing people. Take a look at their portfolios and accolades and it’s easy to tell how good their end product is. But one thing you cannot tell from any photographer’s website is what their personality is like and how it will mesh with you and your big day. I am here to tell you that this husband and wife team are the ones you want to be around on the happiest day of your life. Not only are they a great couple and why wouldn’t you surround yourself with love on your wedding day but they are fun, stress-free and very experienced in any and all wedding day mishaps. If you are worried about all the possible things that could go wrong on your wedding day, I can guarantee Jamey & Corina will not be one of them. They were timely, supportive, creative and always there for every moment without ever being intrusive or distracting. Very little of my day was focused on doing posed photos. For the majority of the day, Corina and Jamey just let my husband and I have an organic experience and captured all the important moments that could never be planned. These are the photos you will cherish the most. I am so grateful to have found Fletcher and Fletcher photography. They have given us an immense amount of beautiful memories to keep forever and also gave us a genuine friendship. I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone.”

{High Country Wedding Guide}

The 2016 Issue is here!  We are so excited to see a lot of our work published throughout the issue.  Be sure to look for our images in the venue guides, and in several fellow vendor’s ads.  We are so thrilled to see Kristen + Alex’s beautiful wedding from Eseeola Lodge and Camp Yonahnoka in Linville in print and featured in this issue.  We collaborated with so many great vendors on this wedding- Meris Gantt with The Whole Shebang, Hallmark Cakes, Callista Designs, and Eseeola Lodge just to name a few.  You can check out the blog post from their wedding here: {Kristen + Alex}

{2015 in Review}

The time has arrived!  We again cannot believe how quickly another year has passed.  It is exciting and bittersweet at the same time.  We really worked with some unbelievably wonderful clients and vendors this year. Here are some of our favorites from 2015.

{Christmas with the Fletchers}

Our favorite time of year has arrived!  We are taking some time off to enjoy the holidays and really make meaningful memories with our children.  Christmas is always magical, but with three little ones, it is so much fun.  Here are a few pictures from our Christmas card session- it is always interesting trying to take pictures of your own family! The last picture is one of my favorites.  We had just gotten the tree up and they just stared in awe of its size and beauty.  We’ll be posting more blog posts such as our 2015 in review and a promotion we’ll be running in January after the holidays, but for now we are spending every second with those most important to us and hope you are too.

With love, The Fletchers
