FIRST LOOK WEDDING
THE WEDDING FIRST LOOK
WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK AT A WEDDING
Over time, many couples are choosing to do a first look for their wedding. This is a sweet, intimate moment where the bride and groom see each other for the first time, just prior to their wedding ceremony. Usually the first look and the location has been planned well in advance. Whether you want your first look to be prior to your ceremony or while you walk down the aisle, remember, it’s your wedding, your way!
HOW LONG DO FIRST LOOK WEDDING PHOTOS TAKE?
When photographing a first look, we suggest allowing at least half an hour. It is best to allocate a time that fits well with your wedding timeline, which is often 1-2 hours prior to your ceremony. We help our couples plan this or if you are using a wedding planner, they can often guide you too.
WHY DO A FIRST LOOK?
One of the biggest reasons why couples choose to incorporate a first look is because it saves them time. Doing a first look means you can get all your couple portraits done without distraction. This means you can focus on each other and take a moment before saying ‘I do’. Furthermore, it can also save time, meaning you have more time to enjoy chats with your guests later in the day.
A first look at your wedding can also be popular during the cooler months, when the winter days are shorter. Incorporating this idea into your big day means you’re making the best use of daylight too.
Your wedding day is filled with a rollercoaster of emotions and a first look can also help calm those nerves. Why not enjoy a moment to yourselves without hundreds of guests looking at you all at once. That first look gaze can often lead to some beautiful photographs with genuine reactions as you share an intimate moment.
THE BIG REVEAL AT THE ALTAR
If you’re someone who’s always envisioned that grand, fairytale entrance while seeing that teary emotion from your soon to be husband, then a first look may not be for you. If you’re someone who wants to stick to tradition, then that’s ok too.
SHOULD YOU HAVE THAT FIRST LOOK WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT?
Remember, its your wedding, your way and the ultimate decision comes down to you both. If you’re looking for a way to make your wedding day a little more special and unique, then I definitely recommend it.
