Wedding First Looks

Let’s talk Wedding First Looks & why you might be interested in doing one.

What is the First Look?!

YES even though they are booming right now in the wedding industry we still have brides that have no clue what a first look is when I ask if they might be interested in doing one.

Traditionally the groom sees the bride at the altar when she walks down the aisle.  Most girls dream of this moment their entire life.  This is what all the movies show & pretty much how every one has always done it.

The first look is when the groom & bride have a special moment before the ceremony to share together.  He gets a kinda “first look” at her before all the guests, outside the pressures of a big ceremony, & a million…okay maybe not a million, but a lot of eyes staring at him.  Sometimes the bride & groom will share special words, letters or gifts during this time.  It’s super special & takes a lot of the nerves off the bride & groom for that big moment.

Even cooler you can get a lot of the photos done pre-ceremony & instead of rushing through the cocktail hour taking photos the whole time you can enjoy your guests & they can enjoy you.  I mean isn’t that the reason you’re there anyways.  Not to take all the fun time taking photos, but instead celebrating with the people you love.

Take a moment & listen to one of our past brides, Jennifer, sharing why she choose to do a first look & see if you might be interested too!
