The First Look
A First Look is a modern tradition when the bride & groom see each other for the First Time, fully dressed, before the ceremony. This is one of our favorite parts of the wedding day! We will help you find the right location for your First Look. Our couples have always said having a First Look never took from the intimate moment of seeing each other as the bride walked down the aisle. Having a First Look means you get to genuinely express real emotions and react to each other in the most honest way without all of your guests staring at you.
You also receive more portraits, AND you’re able to enjoy more time after the ceremony with your guests because you’ve already taken care of the large majority of your portraits (bride & groom, and bridal party). It’s one of the few times you have alone the entire day. It also helps diminish the nerves typically felt before the ceremony.
Tip: Some couples opt for a faux First Look by holding hands around a corner without seeing each other. This is an intimate and fun way to share a few words before your ceremony and help release those nerves you will feel!
