In short, yes! First looks are something that I truly believe every couple can enjoy. Not only is it a super romantic and intimate moment between the two of you, but it’s a quiet moment before the craziness of your day! Seeing your sweetheart for the first time before the ceremony, is such a special moment to share together. And if you aren’t convinced yet, here are a few things to consider when deciding on a first look.
One of my favorite moments is right after the first look. The initial excitement dies down a bit and a feeling of intimacy and gratitude drapes over the bride and groom. The love you have for each other becomes even more real than before! And the best part is that you get to breathe and take in this one moment in time, just the two of you, with all of your love. . . and me, capturing it all so you will never forget!
When you are walking down the aisle there isn’t really much your groom gets to say to you in that moment. And you don’t really get to say much to him. Isn’t that lame? I feel like there are million different thoughts going on and it is seriously awesome to get to hear them right then and there when it all fresh in his mind! When having a first look you get to hear it all!
Who doesn’t want more one on one time on their wedding day?! Let’s face it, most of your wedding is socializing with old friends and new relatives. Having a first look gives you just a little bit more time to be with just each other and talk about everything that is going on. Plus, it adds another special moment in your day! And you can never have too many of those!
So many of my brides and grooms feel those wedding day nerves. By having a first look you get to relax a ton. For some reason seeing your soon-to-be-spouse calms you down and grounds you. This way you can go about the rest of the day with a more level head, and enjoy everything so much more. It helps you remember the ‘why’ of the event, and forget about all the silly little details you stressed about for weeks.
First looks are by far one of my favorite things. And I hope that if you decide to have one, that you enjoy it as much as I enjoy capturing them. Have me capture all of the moments small or large on your big day, I’ll get it all!
