What is a first look?
It is private moment between the couple where they see each other for the first time.
From Christine Marlette……
Having a first look was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. A first look allows you to really soak in the moment and express emotions that during a ceremony, you would have to keep bottled up. In those quiet moments of the first look, it is just you and your future husband without any distraction. The photos will be amazing and will capture your true emotion of seeing each other for the first time. These will be moments I promise you’ll never forget.
As a very traditional person, I did think about this decision a lot. I can now honestly tell you, a first look will not take away from that moment you walk down the isle. For me, I will never forget the moment those doors opened and I saw my husband waiting for me at the end of that isle. I feel having a first look allowed me to really truly focus on the meaning of the ceremony and vows I was taking instead of the nerves and excitement that can sometimes get the most of you.
Having a first look also gave us a chance to take our bridal party photos before the ceremony, with less time constraint. It was wonderful because right after the ceremony and finally being husband and wife, we were able to sneak away just the two of us and have Brooke Images capture amazing photos, it was perfect to have that hour just to ourselves.
