WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK?
The first look is when you see each other before the wedding. It's that magic moment when the Groom see's his Bride for the very first time in all of her Wedding glory -in a private and intimate setting before the ceremony.
WHY A FIRST LOOK?
If you are having your wedding outside heat is an issue sometimes. This way your make-up and hair is perfect and you can do a quick touch up before you walk down the aisle.
We as the photographers are able to capture reactions up close and it makes for some pretty darling photos. (we also get to be creative)
You get to have your own personal, intimate, and romantic moment with your groom ALONE (or at least with the guests of your choosing).
The bride and groom who see each other before they walk down the aisle are more relaxed. They focus on enjoying the ceremony instead of little details that could go wrong.
Last but not least, because the bride and groom have seen each other the photographers can get all the formals done before the wedding! This is a huge time saver and your hungry guests will thank you.
BUT, ISN'T IT BAD LUCK TO SEE THE BRIDE?
This was more so back when marriages where arranged. Often the groom never saw the bride before the wedding because if they did they might decide they didn't want to go through with it. (that would stink!) But this is where the "bad luck" comes from. But lucky for you your fiancé saw you and asked you to marry you so you are good to go. Again a lot of what weddings are have to do with traditions so do what you think is best for you.
