The first look is a chance for wedding couples to see each other privately before the ceremony. Some clients opt out from doing a first look because they want to keep the tradition that it is not a good luck to see the bride before the ceremony. On the other hand, it can be a great chance to get the wedding jitters out and spend a few minutes alone together. We find that first look photos tend to be some of the most beautiful, real moments with real emotions. Again, it’s a great way to avoid stress on your wedding day. (Some couples even choose to get ready together!) Many couples get to enjoy their whole cocktail hour because they got all of the photos out of the way before the wedding. We do reinforce that this is a personal preference, and we completely respect whatever the couple feels is best for them.
