Happy Wednesday everyone! A common question I get as a photographer is regarding whether or not to do a first look. Sometimes a couple has very firm opinions about it, but often many people are on the fence about whether a first look would be right for them. People wonder if it “ruins” the walk down the aisle for the bride since the groom has already seen her. Personally, I don’t think it does….there is something different about the moment a bride walks down the aisle in front of her family and friends from when the bride and groom share an intimate moment with just the two of them. Often, the groom has a more honest reaction to his bride when it is just them, rather than standing in front of a large crowd. All that to say….I firmly believe that doing a first look (or not) should be the decision of the couple, but I thought I would share a few favorite first looks (and groom reactions as the bride walks down the aisle) for you today!
