The Pro’s For Doing A “First Look”
Gives You Privacy on Your Wedding Day (Which is Normally a Rarity)
Calms Your Nerves
Allows Formal Portraits to Occur Before
40% MORE PORTRAITS
ENJOY THE SURPRISE FREELY
Having a private moment between you and your husband-to-be is almost unheard of on your wedding day (believe it or not.) The First Look has become the most private part of your day (away from wedding party or hovering mothers.) It is quiet and peaceful and allows time to LOVE on each other (with your photographer there to capture it all so that you can always remember this moment and the expressions that go with it.)
Coordinate with your photographer or wedding planner to make sure that there is enough time after your “first look” that you are able to leave the premises to give yourself at least 30-45 minutes before your ceremony to digress and relax (and also allows time for the adrenaline to build back up until you see your hubby-to-be again as man and wife!) This also hides you from your guests!
Planning the First Look usually allows for planned time to do all family photos before the ceremony.
The benefits you ask?
After the ceremony (and all the nerves that go with it) you are now free and clear to relax and enjoy the FUN! Rejoice in the moment and live it up with your hubby and bridal party! It also shortens your time in between your ceremony and reception, so your guests aren’t waiting so long and you can look forward to an earlier dinner!
TIP: This also cuts down on cocktail drink expenses if you are on a budget!
You’re investing a lot into your wedding photography. With a rst look, you’ll receive 40% MORE portraits of the two of you... and those are the images you will decorate your rst home with! (Believe me, our house is PACKED full of our portraits!) With a rst look, you make the most out of this large investment and get the most for your money.
You actually get to have intimate time on your wedding day with your man. Most brides don’t realize that when you come down the aisle and totally SHOCK him with your gorgeous-ness... he can’t even tell you how amazing you look. He can’t touch you, embrace you or even SPEAK to you. You have to wait until 30 minutes later when the ceremony is over for him to react and tell you how amazing you look. And a er 30 minutes of the ceremony, the reaction isn’t the same as the initial first glance.
