As tradition tells it, there is a superstition that on their wedding day, the bride and groom should not see one another until that first moment they lock eyes from opposite ends of the aisle. However, there is a new trend in down as far as this ‘first look’ goes. If you aren’t at all superstitious and are happy to break from tradition on your wedding day, then ‘first look’ photos might be for you.
First look wedding photography is a planned photo shoot set up to capture those initial moments when the husband and wife to be, lay eyes on each other, all spruced up for their big day together. Usually set up by your wedding photographer away from the wedding guests and prior to your ceremony, First Look Wedding Photography can be a lovely way to share those special moments in a private setting before you say ‘I do’. Some couples also choose to have their bridal party waiting in the wings, looking on for a few extra fun photos.
This type of photo shoot is sure to send emotions through the roof not only at the moment they are taken but also each time the photos are viewed thereafter. Surprise, joy, love, fun, and tears of happiness, are just some of the many feelings captured in first look wedding photos, providing a very special and often breath-taking touch to your wedding album.
