We are right in the middle of Wedding season here in Atlanta, GA. I am amazed at all the wonderful brides and grooms we have met so far and looking forward to many more this year. When planning your schedule for your wedding day, make sure to include a small mini session to do "First Look" photos.
What are "First Look" photos?
Traditionally in weddings, the bride is not suppose to see her groom until the actual ceremony. The last time she saw her groom was the previous evening during the rehearsal dinner. Then the next day she is getting ready for the big day. 1n 2013, more and more brides are wanting these First Look photos. First Look photos usually takes place a few minutes right before she walks down the aisle. This is an exciting time for the Bride and Groom to "see" each other before their guests. This gives them a little private time together to appreciate each other and loosen a bit of nervousness. First Look photos are usually all done naturally, no posing at all from the photographers. We guide you where to stand and what might look good in photos, but the rest are up to the bride and groom. The expressions on their faces are all so natural and genuine. Some can be emotional and romantic. When looking back at your photo album after your wedding, you will be glad you did these.
Here are examples of First Look Photos:
Bride sneaking up behind the groom, then covering his eyes. The smile on the grooms face is priceless!
Bride hiding behind the door and can only see the grooms hands reaching out for her hand. This builds excitement!
Here the groom is facing the other way while the bride is approaching him. Waiting to see his expression when they see each other.
Groom is checking out her dress and smiling non-stop. They are so cute!
If the door is too small, try finding a corner wall. Bride is hiding behind the wall and then they peeked over to see each other.
So, what do you think? These photos tell a story and will make wonderful memories for many years for the wedding couple.
