Lots of couples are opting out of the tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding and taking advantage of ‘first look’ photos, a rising trend in modern wedding days.
This gives the photographer a better chance to capture your special moment when couples see each other for the first time in their wedding attire. It can also give family and close friends an intimate moment with the couple and more chances for photo ops, this saves time between the ceremony and the reception and you can join your guests at cocktail hour! It also can take the jitters away with seeing each other before the official “I Do’s”.
If you feel strongly about seeing each other before the wedding, it’s entirely up to you, however, it is YOUR day! Don’t be afraid to break the mold of traditional wedding rules and celebrate the magic and romance of that “first look.”
