As far as the wedding photography aspect goes, it really just stream lines the photo aspect of the day, making all of the more coordinated must haves like family formals and wedding party photos get done before the ceremony. It also gives us the option of 2 different bride and groom portrait times (my favorite thing to photograph!) on the wedding day. Once after the first look and then a sneak away 15 min bride and groom photos during sunset time. As an Iowa wedding photographer, I will always love the ability to get as many extra bride and groom portraits as I can!
So let me give you some points on how how to determine if a first look is the right thing for your wedding.
At the end of the day, this is your wedding. You have to decide on what you both want and what will work best for your day and timeline. Most couples I talk to think that the first look is just a trend and that it gives a feeling of not being genuine or traditional, and thats not the case. Regardless if you do a walk down the aisle look or a first look, you can still create a wedding day timeline that incorporates all your special moments. <3
