Why You Should Do A First Look

We are sipping coffee & making confessions today! This is something we are always up for & it’s something that some brides don’t like to do & that is okay! It really is okay! …You may have guessed it already, it’s the “first look!” Most of our sweet brides love this idea of doing a first look and there is a reason why they are so great!

For starters, you get this extra time with your hubby that is so personal and sweet that you just can’t get if you don’t do a first look. A wedding day goes by so extremely fast and having this extra time at the beginning of the day with your soon to be husband is actually a relief and it is fun! Your bridal party will actually get to hang out all together before the ceremony and it is actually a lot of fun and more laid back for everyone!

sdf.jpgAnother huge advantage to doing a first look is you will get to knock out almost all of the pictures you will need to take before the ceremony even starts! This means when the ceremony ends, all you will have to do is family portraits and possibly sunset pictures of you two alone (sunset willing). It means you can get to your ceremony quicker, and it means the party can get started, woohoo! There are always those wedding guests who will leave before dessert and if you want that chance to see them, the first look option is the best for you! fghjk.jpgWe have learned that bride’s really want to see their groom’s reaction first hand and you don’t have to compromise that with a first look! It is actually so much more intimate than seeing them for the first time during the ceremony! It’s just the two of you (and us, being as quiet as mice – capturing it) and there’s no chance of a wedding guest ruining your photographer/videographer’s shot of your sweet groom’s reaction by pulling out their cell phones in front of us! (it’s happened y’all – don’t worry we still got the shot J)DSC_2198.jpgObviously, we are 100% here to serve you, and if you want the traditional first look at their ceremony, we still love that too! We just want you to have all the options! It is your wedding day and its totally up to the bride & groom. We are here for you guys and we want to make you as happy as possible!  XOXO – Dylan & Alex
