The first time he sees you dressed as his bride… the first time you see him on your wedding day. For me, and for many brides of years past, this happened only walking down the aisle as family and guests shared in your moment. Now a First Look can be a more intimate and treasured experience that also allows for more beautiful wedding pictures.
With his back turned away, you walk to him, tap him on the shoulder, he turns and sees you in that beautiful white dress. In about an hour he will pledge to love you forever before family and friends. Meanwhile, my camera captures those incredible images.
By doing a First Look and wedding formals before the ceremony, more time is allowed for pictures.
Don’t worry if you’re superstitious, you can still wear a penny inside your shoe and wear something old, borrowed and something new!…avoid black cats, don’t go under ladders and whatever you do…don’t step on a crack. Regardless of when he sees you for the first time, I’ll be there to capture it.
Paul RowlandNice post. I’m a big fan of the 1st look as well b/c I feel that the moment they have alone is so special.
KyleFirst looks are the BEST. So much more intimate than in front of everybody!
ed peersGreat emotion captured so naturally… not an easy thing to do! Great job
Thomas LesterLove the first look. I wasn’t so sure at first, but once I did a couple, I was in love. You do it well… it’s a lot harder than it looks to pull off correctly and you did a great job.
ayeshanicely done! i love how you capture both the anticipation and the emotion.
Brad RossLovely mix of emotions. You did a wonderful job.
Marianne TaylorDoing my first first look in February, really looking forward to it after seeing these!
DarkoGreat post. I think there is something to be said about the first look. The emotions are just about the two of them and there is no stress of the ceremony and the crowd and everything.
NikoleGreat post on first looks. They are such a great way for couples to see each other for the first time on their wedding day!
HeatherFirst looks are awesome!!!
