The First, First Look!

The first look can be a very big deal! Traditionally the first look would be during the ceremony when the bride walks down the aisle. Lately, like a lot of other things, those old school traditions have changed a bit! People can have a photographer take a first look picture before the ceremony even starts. This started because it was easier to take wedding pictures before the wedding so that guests are not waiting around while pictures are being taken. Another reason why the first look pictures came around was because it was usually done right after hair and makeup were done. Right after you get all dolled up is the best time to take pictures! 

Originally it was said to be bad luck for the groom to see the bride the day of the wedding before the ceremony starts. This continued for many many years. This is one thing that is very special for the bride and groom. This is the first time they are seeing each other the day of their wedding. Often times they can get very emotional. Your nerves are going and you are nervous and excited and when you see each other sometimes tears of happiness can come out! This moment can be shared with your whole family by walking down the isle for the first look or by capturing it before the ceremony starts. Either way make it special for you and your spouse and do it how you want to do it!
