Being an old fashioned girl, the first time I heard about having a “First Look” I was pretty skeptical! I have now changed my tune. There is so many positive things that I love about a first look. One is the privacy that the couple will have during these few moments without everyone watching! I find the groom especially can share his emotions more freely. Many times, especially winter and fall months the timeline can be quite tricky to handle without having a first look, especially if the couple have their hearts set on outdoor portraits! My advice is to speak to your photographer early on before setting the timeline up because he or she will give you so many options that can work either way. Ultimately, I just want my couple to do exactly what they want to do. This is a once in a lifetime decision so it should always be about them! As a photographer, I will always make it work for them!
