Traditionally, couples wait to see each other until the ceremony. As a Romantic Baton Rouge Wedding Photographer, I love the emotion I capture when the couple see each other for the first time during the ceremony. But there’s also the option to have a first look. A first look is when the couple decides to see each other privately before the ceremony. Today I wanted to talk about the advantages of having a first look.
To add a personal note, I myself decided on a first look for my wedding. I have beautiful pictures of me and my husband as we first saw each other on that special day. The emotion was still there. Plus he cracked some of his cheesy jokes I’ve become all too familiar with and there are great photos of us laughing too. That’s not something we would have had if we skipped the first look. We both still had all the emotion during the ceremony. Having a first look didn’t take away anything from the ceremony.
I hope this blog helped you understand some of the advantages of a first look. If you aren’t set on going the traditional route, I highly recommend considering having one.
