I am a proud member of Team First Look and I recommend that every couple consider doing one on their wedding day.
What's a first look, anyway? Well, it goes a little something like this -- the moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time before the ceremony, usually in a private setting, and a photographer captures it. The first look is a perfect opportunity to slip away from the hustle and bustle of your wedding day and share an intimate moment together. It's also a great way to manage your wedding day schedule. Getting these photos done before the ceremony allows you more time to spend with your guests during the cocktail hour and reception. A wedding photographer would also agree that a first look session gives them a chance to get creative and make the most out of the day's natural light.
The 'old school' couples may disagree with me on this one. Some are just not interested in breaking tradition. Others believe the first look moment should happen when the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle. That's cute too, I guess, but wedding trends are moving more and more away from tradition by the minute. Today's modern couples are doing their own thing.
For us, we just want our wedding photographs to be the bomb.com! So, first look it is!
Readers, what do you think? Team 'first look'? Or team 'I'll catch up with you at the ceremony'?
