It wasn’t until a couple of years ago when we started our business that I started hearing the phrase “First Look.” I would read articles from Jasmine Star and other well known wedding photographers and they would always talk about the First Look. Earlier this year I had my first experience with a First Look. Let me tell you….I will ALWAYS recommend it! lol.
Although it is completely untraditional for the groom to see his bride before the wedding, it definitely pays off. During this time it gives you both a moment to breath and relax. It is such a beautiful moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time without the distraction of others. It’s that last moment before you become husband and wife. It is such a beautiful sight to watch. Seriously.
Also, during the wedding day time flies by. The wedding timeline never goes as planned. And although Luke and I are laid back and we completely understand, the first look gives us that time to get the bride and groom formals out of the way. This way after the ceremony you can have a little more time with your family and we can have more time for the family shots and bridal party.
So if you are getting married here soon really think about doing a First Look. It is such a special moment that you both will share and have beautiful images to remember forever.
