Photographs are increasingly one of the most important things to couples on their wedding day. They want the day to be captured so they can cherish the memories for years to come. Often, they invest in a great photographer and even videographer whom spend the whole day making sure every detail is captured. With the rise of the importance of bridal portraits is a newer tradition of the first look. This is when you set up a time before the ceremony where the couple sees each other for the first time on the day. This is different than tradition where the first time the couple sees each other when they meet each other at the altar. Today I want to go over some of the reasons I personally think a first look is a great idea.
The important thing is to do what feels right for you but if you chose to take photos after the ceremony make sure to have activities for your guests and please whatever you do let them eat!
