Grandma always said to keep traditions. I get it, traditions mean the world to everyone but on this day, your wedding day, what means the most to you. Considering doing a first look can be a pull and tug controversy between not only you as a couple but to your family as well. If everyone isn’t on board, suddenly that pull starts to take your heart from what could make your wedding day that mush more perfect.
Here’s how a first look unfolds. Once the couple is ready in their full wedding day attire, they are strategically placed in either a spot that they previously chose or a spot that I chose in knowing the light is great, the mood is set, the nook is quiet. The bride makes her way, taps her partner on the shoulder or places her head on their back to take that one last breath…whatever the choice may be, this moment is intimate, quiet, and still. You two see each other for the first time, alone, not with a huge crowd looking at you. In these crowded moments, thoughts can begin to unfold all while taking away from the true meaning of seeing your partner for the first time. “Is my reaction alright”, “What’s grandma doing with her iPad”, “Am I standing funny”, the list can go on. Opting for a first look rids all of the extra noise and tones everything down to you two.
