A first look is a staged meeting of the bride and groom before the wedding ceremony which is captured by their photographer and sometimes videographer. In recent times, we are getting more and more requests for this special moment and I am always happy to oblige. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider a first look:

  1. A Time for Just You Two: Weddings go by so fast and sometimes couples rarely get a minute to just be by themselves. I find that First Looks are more than just for cute photographs. They also give the couple an opportunity to center themselves, to recollect the reason they are there in the first place.
  2. Get More Photos: Scheduling time for photos before the ceremony with a first look allows for more great photo opportunities. Weddings can be unpredictable and there are often delays. By planning and incorporating a First Look into your timeline, you provide your photographer an opportunity to capture some beautiful intimate photos
  3. First looks can go beyond just the bride and the groom. I especially love first looks between the bride and her dad. If the couple has kids, it can also be a beautiful moment for the little to see Mom and Dad in all their finery. These photos make for memories that last a lifetime and

So yes, you should definitely have a First Look moment even if you are having an elopement. I promise it will be worth the time 🙂
