More and more couples are bucking the trend not seeing each other before their wedding and choosing to make that first look an event all by itself.
The First Look photo is just that; an image that captures the pure surprise and emotion of the couple the first time they see each other before the ceremony. Brides are also choosing to do this with their fathers, seeing Dad’s eyes tear up when he sees his daughter always makes for a moving image.

Aside from being able to capture these moments in real time, the couple then doesn’t have to spend so much time in between the ceremony and reception doing their photos. The photographer will most certainly have gotten excellent shots of the bride and groom, all that will be needed is the bridal party, and everybody get proceed to having a grand time. No rushing, no impatient guests, no hungry bridesmaids (they can get pretty scary….)
The First Look shoot should definitely be planned into the wedding day timeline, the photographer will certainly want to make sure that optimal lighting conditions exist for the couple.
