Clients ask me all the time whether or not they should do a first look before the ceremony, or if they should stick with tradition. My answer comes in two parts. If a bride and groom believe in tradition or superstition, I suggest they should stick with what they are comfortable with. If they are open to the possibility of getting some really amazing photos before the ceremony so they could spend more time with friends and family members, I suggest doing a first look and getting the important photos out of the way. When done correctly, a first look can be a magical moment for a couple to see each other for the first time without the distraction of the bridal party, guests, and family members. It’s a safe place where real feelings and emotions are triumphant over the obstacles that can dilute the experience of being in love and in the moment. Although on the fence, Jennifer and Ben decided last minute to have their first look photos, and formal photos taken before their wedding, so they could enjoy their cocktail hour and reception. The images we captured that day were nothing less than stunning. I get goose bumps every time I look at their photos. Their emotions and love for one another were so raw, and honest.
