Why Photographers Love First Looks
Not only does it provide a chance to capture authentic emotions and reactions, but it also allows us to capture intimate moments between the couple without the distractions of guests or the pressure of a ticking clock
. Additionally, a first look often allows for better lighting and locations for photos.
One of the main reasons why first looks have become so popular is the emotion and intimacy that they provide. When the bride and groom see each other for the first time, they often experience a range of emotions, from excitement and joy to nerves and anticipation. By having this moment alone, the couple can connect on a deeper level and create an intimate memory that they will cherish forever. As a photographer, it is incredibly rewarding to capture these raw and genuine moments.
Where to do your first look
Alternatively, a couple’s home or a location that holds special meaning to you can provide a more personal touch.
It provides a chance for the couple to connect and experience a range of emotions in an intimate setting, while also allowing for more time for photos to be taken. Photographers love first looks because they provide the opportunity to capture authentic emotions and create stunning images in a more relaxed setting.
Whether it takes place in a beautiful outdoor location, an elegant hotel lobby or staircase, or a location that holds special meaning to the couple, a first look is a truly special moment that should not be missed.
In our opinion – do it! They will provide you with some of the most meaningful imagery you could hope for!
