I get asked all the time from brides-to-be what I think about a first look and my answer is always, yes do it.  It's not for everyone, of course. 


There are benefits of doing a first look and I wanted to list them.


1.  You get to enjoy a special moment.  You get to enjoy and savor that first moment of seeing one another on your wedding day without all your guests watching. You are able  to hug, kiss,cry,laugh,smile and not feel like you have to hold back. Having that instant reaction and tender moment documented is priceless. 


2.  Timing. Doing a First Look provides much more time for photos without being rushed. Immediately after the First Look, I typically photograph the bride and groom together for a little while. 


3.  Calming those nerves. Brides are definitely less nervous for the ceremony and the rest of the wedding day when they do a First Look. They are just as excited and anxious, as are the grooms, but less nervous since they have already had time with their soul mate before the ceremony.


Here is a first look we recently captured.  And if you haven't considered it for your wedding day I highly suggest giving it a thought.
