What is a First Look, and is it right for me?
Our clients that choose a first look never regret it.
While you are getting ready, we carefully scope out the venue to find a gorgeous setting or a cozy private nook to curate a special moment between you and your fiance. Once the bride is fully dressed and ready, we take the groom outside and get him into position and tell him to breathe and stay present in the moment. As the bride slowly walks up to the groom, our team captures the groom’s face, full of anticipation. He can hear her footsteps getting closer and closer until the sound of her giggle, as she reaches out to tap him on the shoulder, lights up his face with the most amazing expressions.
There are so many emotions that hit at once when the groom turns around and sees his bride for the very first time. That moment is undeniably uniquely your own. Some people laugh, some people cry, and others quietly hug or share a prayer. How ever you choose to feel in that moment, it is yours to savor, and ours to capture.
The first look allows you to fully feel your emotions in a special intimate moment with your fiance, rather than struggling to hold back tears or “keep it together” in front of all your friends and family.
Some people are concerned about breaking the tradition of the groom seeing the bride for the first time as she walks down the aisle, but we strongly encourage our couples to think about the first look as an extension of that moment. Both moments will still happen, and are equally valid. Doing a first look does not change the impact you will have on your groom as you walk down the aisle, we promise! It’s still the first time he sees you walking down the aisle, regardless of if you shared a special moment together before the ceremony. Both experiences are amazing, and we think that it adds a layer of intimacy to your special day.
Scheduling the first look earlier in the day, means your hair and makeup are super fresh and looking perfect. After you see each other for the first time and the tears start flowing, you will have time for a final touchup right before the ceremony begins and you can center yourself before you say, I DO.
If your ceremony is scheduled for the late afternoon, and the sunsets early, you might be more pressed for time after the ceremony, so rather than trying to cram in hundreds of family photos AND your romantics, the first look allows you to have a stress-free romantic session, just the two of you, without any distractions. We typically structure the romantics a few minutes after you have your special moment together. We tune into your subtle queues and when it looks like you two have fully experienced that emotional high of seeing each other for the first time, we guide you through a series of intimate poses for between 15-45 minutes, depending on how much time you have in the schedule. We typically carve our at least 5 minutes of chill time for you to freshen up right before the ceremony while we get into position, and as your guests are being seated. Couples tell us that they love having that special time with their fiance before they have their transformative moment into husband and wife.
