A first look is so romantic to me. You and your partner see each other for the first time before you walk down the aisle. This moment is intimate and romantic and is shared just between you two (and me!).

You choose to do a first look for many reasons, but I wanted to share my top reasons

Privacy

This moment shared can be the most intimate part of your wedding day. As you see each other for the first time, it gives you a few moments alone. There is no one around you that you have to entertain, and at that moment, it is just you and your partner looking into each other eyes.

More Time

If you do a first look, this allows more time for you to enjoy time with your guests. We are done with pictures before the ceremony, and you can enjoy time with your guests and thank them for being there

No Rushing

If you do your first look and photos ahead of time, it is scheduled with enough time to get everything you need. You don’t have to rush through them like you would during the one-hour cocktail hour. Guests also don’t have to wait around if you run over.

Nerves

Having a first look calms your nerves before walking down the aisle. You can connect on a deep level, and all you have to do is know you are walking down the aisle to your partner.

Let’s chat about your 2022 wedding plan!
