5 Reasons To Do A First Look on Your Wedding Day

What is a First Look

This is a moment when the couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day. The first look allows couples to share this special moment together in a more private setting instead of down the aisle.

Traditionally, couples will wait until the ceremony before locking eyes on their wedding day. However, it’s becoming more and more popular to see each other before the ceremony and here’s why….

5 Reasons We Love A First Look

  • You feel calm once you see each other
  • You get all the feels and have more time to take each other in
  • More time and oppertunties for photos
  • You can do photos early in the day and be present at cocktail hour

We’ve photographed hundreds of weddings and we continue to find that weddings with a first look tend to go a lot smoother.
