FAQ: Should I Opt For First Look/Reveal Shots?

Shawn stood with his back to his bride, his eyes on the sand.

He knew in just a few seconds he would get his first glimpse of the woman he was going to marry - but not in the traditional way.

Shawn and Vanessa opted for a First Look, where the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony and away from the majority of their guests.

It gives them time to have a moment to themselves - as well as focus on the groom's expression when he sees his future spouse all ready for the wedding.

There are so many beautiful moments that occur during a First Look and it's something we love to photograph for three main reasons:

  • No distractions.  Immediately on arriving at the ceremony, you're aware of your lovely guests, the vows you're about to make and, if you're anything like I was as a bride, how nervous you are!  With a First Look, much of those nerves are gone, as it's just the two of you and your photographs discreetly capturing the moment.  There's a chance to relax and be together, appreciate the efforts you've both made to look your best and simply enjoy each other's company.

  • The photographs will be better.  Chances are, your photographers will be able to choreograph the First Look - and that means getting you both in the best light.  That's not a luxury we get in the middle of a wedding ceremony.  
  • It's something different.  First Look/Reveal shots are growing in popularity, but they're still in the minority - so this is a chance to get photographs that are a little bit different from the norm.
