Should you do a first look? While a ton of brides have hopped on the first look train, some are still undecided as to what to do. So what I want to do is break down the pros and cons of each to help you make the best decision for you. Many photographers are definitely pro for first look, but in my personal point of view, this isn’t my decision nor should it be my preference. I think a bride should have what she wants and I will accommodate and plan a timeline with you to get exactly that! So here are some things to consider for each!
I’m going to present to you a third option, you may not have thought of. This would be a ‘non-seeing first look’. I’ve only had a handful of couples choose this, but I truly think it’s adorable! You get to hold hands, chat with each other for a private moment, but still build anticipation of seeing one another. They’re always super sweet. It creates another a photo opportunity if you want to take the traditional route!
I hope this helped answer the question of should you do a first look? I always remind my brides, this is your wedding day! You do what you dream. You and your fiancé’s preference and happiness is what matters most to me. If you need any further thoughts, suggestions or want to discuss your feeling about options with me to help aid you to a decision, I am more than happy to chat it out. I just want you to make the best decision for you. Any way you choose it will be absolutely gorgeous and I am honored to be a part of it!
