First Look. That moment when a bride and groom see each other for the very first time, on their wedding day. A magical moment.
Interestingly, seeing each other as the bride is about to walk down the aisle has never been termed a “first look”. This is a much more modern event, and it makes so much sense.
Benefits of a First Look.
There are many benefits to setting up a First Look. Your wedding photographs, an important aspect of the day, can be greatly improved in a First Look. The photographer has the ability to choose the perfect scene. Choose the best lighting for better photography, and also look for a romantic environment. This level of control is simply not available in a church.
You get to have hugs and kisses, intimate moments to spend with each other, something that never happens in the aisle during a ceremony.
You can spend more of the day together, have fun with your bridal party taking awesome wedding day photos, way before the ceremony even begins.
If you leave your photography until after your ceremony, there is a finite amount of time before you have to attend your reception. Now you are rushed, and that’s not good on your wedding day.
So here are a couple of recent images to show a typical First Look, and if you like, you can also read this article:
