Wedding First Looks & Why to Have One

What is all the hype around doing wedding first looks? If you don’t already know, this is the time when a couple meets in a hidden location before the ceremony, rather than the groom seeing the bride for the first time coming down the aisle. It gives you chance to talk, react, and relax your nerves. The choice to do a first look is completely up to you! When doing a first look, you will be in a location away from arriving guests, so there’s no need to worry that they’ll see you.

While you’re deciding what’s right for you, there are a few advantages to keep in mind.

Wedding first looks give couples more time for portraits

If you choose to do a first look together, you will have more pictures. There will be pre-ceremony photos as a bride and groom, in addition to post-ceremony photos as husband and wife. In addition, to your posed portraits, the groom’s reaction will be captured, which can lead to some sweet images!

Most likely, these are the images you’re looking forward to hanging on your wall. Wedding first looks will give you plenty of beautiful images to choose from! Your hair and makeup will be fresh for photos too!

Wedding first looks = more couple portraits

Minimize uncertainty & stress on your wedding day

We’ll hope for the best on your wedding day, but unfortunately, things don’t always happen according to plan. Wedding first looks provide assurance that couple and bridal party portraits have been captured should the wedding timeline get off track or any weather changes. If the sun sets before your ceremony ends, light has been lost for those soft, dreamy images. Should either of these events occur on your wedding day, you will have peace of mind knowing images have already been captured.
