The First Look
Everything you need to know
Time spent - Choosing to do a first look shifts the timeline on your wedding day. It allows you to take pictures before the ceremony but you will be getting ready a little earlier in the day. Consider what time you would need to start hair and makeup.
Best results - You should know that the ideal time to be taking portraits outside is about an hour before sunset. Keep that in mind if you decide not to see each other. Be sure to leave enough time between the ceremony and reception to achieve the best results.
Is together better - When you see each other beforehand will it make you feel better? Your experience may be better together so talk about what works best for you two.
Cocktails - If you're leaning towards a first look, you'll be able to transition from ceremony to cocktail hour a bit more smoothly.
Whats most important - Are beautiful photographs the most important? Or is simplicity at the top of the list? Figure out what is most important then talk with your photographer about the greatest way to achieve it.
