“Should I do a first look on my wedding day?”
YES! And here are my top 5 reasons why:
1 THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE
This is the day you marry the love of your life. Don’t you want to spend it with them!?
Planning a first looks gives you several additional hours to spend together and make even more memories on one of the most special days of your life and relationship.
2 THE MOMENT
When you see each other for the first time during the ceremony, you don’t have time to take in everything about the moment. You see them down the aisle but then you immediately start the nuptials.
First looks give you time to really enjoy every single thing about seeing each other for the first time on your wedding day. You get to see and comment about all the details of the dress and the suit and the hair and the flowers…
Then, when it comes time for the ceremony, you can relax and enjoy.
3 REAL REACTIONS, NO DISTRACTIONS
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for… but you can’t help but feel everyone’s eyes on you during the ceremony waiting to see your reaction.
A first looks offers a private moment for you to have honest, genuine reactions without any distractions.
4 FRIENDS & FAMILY
A first looks allow your photographer and videographer to get the majority of your pictures out of the way before the ceremony.
This let’s you get to your reception significantly faster which means more time celebrating with your friends and family.
5 TIME & PHOTOS
Doing pictures before your ceremony let’s us (photographer & videographer) get way more stuff than we can after the ceremony. We aren’t racing the clock to get your pictures done before we lose light or to stay on schedule for the reception.
