The Pros and Cons of Doing a First Look on Your Wedding Day

Planning your wedding day can be exciting, but it can also be stressful trying to decide on all the details. One of those decisions might be whether to do a first look before your ceremony. A first look is a private moment between you and your partner before the ceremony, where you see each other for the first time on your wedding day. In this blog post, we'll go over the pros and cons of doing a first look, and how it can impact your wedding photography and videography.

Pros:

  • You'll have a special moment to share with your partner before the ceremony, which can help calm nerves and alleviate stress.

  • Doing a first look allows you to take your wedding photos and videos before the ceremony, which can save time later on and allow you to attend your cocktail hour.

  • You'll have more flexibility in terms of lighting and location for your wedding photos and videos.

Cons:

  • A first look means that you'll be spending less time with your guests during the cocktail hour.

  • If you're a traditionalist, a first look may not be in line with your values.

  • A first look may take away some of the anticipation and excitement of seeing your partner for the first time during the ceremony.

How a First Look Can Impact Your Wedding Photography and Videography:

  • Doing a first look can allow your photographer and videographer to capture more intimate and candid moments between you and your partner.

  • If you take your wedding photos and videos before the ceremony, you'll have more time to get the shots and footage you want without feeling rushed.

  • A first look can provide an opportunity to get creative with your wedding photography and videography, by incorporating unique locations or props into your photos and videos.

Whether or not to do a first look on your wedding day is a personal decision that should be made by you and your partner.
