The great debate recently for all my couples is whether or not to have a first look. Personally, I’m team first look for multiple reasons! I think its a such a romantic and intimate moment shared between you and your hunny before the beautiful chaos of the day unfolds. Your wedding day is a beautiful whirl wind, it will fly by and having an extra moment/memory like this with just the two of you (alone) will be rare. Its an awesome way to calm your nerves before walking down the isle and also the perfect moment to share hand written vows, or letters that you may not want to vocalize to all your friends and family during your ceremony. Know what the extra bonus of it is….this means you can take all bridal party photos, and family photos before your ceremony even starts!!! If your left there still scratching your head, like okay chris, soooo?…let me spell it out for ya, this means after sneaking away for a few bride & groom portraits (because who doesn’t want BOMB golden hour photos), you get to enjoy your cocktail hour! Honestly its a win win, and if your still not convinced just scroll down to see the freaking sweetest first look reaction. I literally started crying as it happened behind my camera lens and then again while editing it haha. Ugh gotta love first looks.
