VLOG: Should You Have A 'First Look' On Your Wedding Day?

If you’ve been contemplating whether or not to make time for a first look on your wedding day, allow us to jump in and help! We’re sharing our own stories and breaking down a few reasons why having a first look may be a smart idea, but first, let’s go back to basics:

What Is A First Look?

A first look is an intimate moment a few hours before the ceremony where bride and groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day. The first look is generally arranged by the couple and their wedding photographer in a private setting away from family and friends, which allows for a raw and emotional moment to be captured.

Why Should You Have A First Look?

  1. To Have Guaranteed Alone Time: Believe it or not, YOU, as a couple, will be the focal point of your wedding day (shocking, right?). You will end up being so busy chatting with friends and family, taking family photos, and dancing the night away, so having a first look allows for you to have guaranteed alone time before the main event.

  2. To Have More Photo Options: When it comes down to it, the photos from your wedding day that will be hung up and plastered all over your walls will be ones of just you two as a couple. A first look allows for you to choose from many different options.

  3. To Give A Better Flow To Your Day: Scheduling time together before your wedding even begins, allows for a more seamless flow throughout the rest of the evening. This way, you won’t have to worry about squeezing in time to take photos in the midst of the celebration!

  4. To Have More Time To Spend With Your Guests: Your guests are here for one reason: YOU. Taking first look photos while everyone is in the process of arriving will give you that much more time to mingle with your guests, so you won’t have to sneak away during the reception. Your wedding day will fly by, so be sure to cherish every single moment possible!
