First Look & Why They Rock!
Why is a first look important for me?? Because it gives me the opportunity to produce natural, light-infused, gorgeous photographs that might (depending on your schedule) be missed otherwise. I’d like to believe that my clients not only hired me to document their day, but because they love the art that I create in my photography and that they want that
same style for their own wedding photos. If your schedule doesn’t allow a lot of sunlight for photos, consider the first look – it’s one way that we can count on to get you the same gorgeousness in your own photos that made you fall in love with my photography when you first visited my website 🙂
I hope these tips/details will help you in making a decision for your own wedding & first look. While I think it’s a great break from tradition, at the end of the day it all depends on the bride & groom and how they feel about it. If you have any questions – just let me know! I’d be happy to offer some tips when creating your own wedding schedule.
There are some circumstances that truly call out for a first look, such as:
– You have an evening ceremony and you want to use natural light to capture your important photos.
– You have a tight wedding schedule and you need to do all of your group/family photos before the ceremony.
– You want to have plenty of time to venture out for your bride/groom photos.
– You don’t mind trying out this new tradition.
Does it create some awesome memories? Yes. Can it improve your wedding day schedule? Yes. Is it for everyone? No!
Only you can decide if this is the right choice for you & your groom! If you have a full day for your wedding and aren’t constricted on time, or if you have a day-time ceremony where you’ll have plenty of sunlight for your photos… maybe you can afford to wait until afterwards and not do a first look. It’s definitely a break from tradition! And it’s completely your choice!
