The first look is a new trend in weddings. It is when the Bride and Groom see each other for the first time on the wedding day. This is usually set up a couple of hours before the ceremony in a private place close to the Ceremony location, where only the Bride, the Groom and the Photographers are present.
The whole idea is to let the newlyweds to have a moment of privacy for themselves before the Ceremony. This may not be a traditional thing, but it allows the couple to express their love for each other and relax a little from all the natural nervousness that comes with getting married.
First-look wedding photos are becoming very popular. This trend is not new, I did my first look session about 10 years ago. Now days most of my couples ask me do it. It’s still entirely up to you whether or not you want to uphold the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride until the ceremony.
