Why Opt For A First Look? | Something Minted Photography

You've probably heard about them, but might be wondering how a first look sets the pace of a wedding day and your photography timeline. More often than not couples opt to see each other before the ceremony, here are a few favorite reasons why:

1. It offers more portrait time and the chance to use photography locations surrounding your venue. Plus, it's a built in backup plan in case the weather changes post-ceremony!

2. This may be the only truly private moment you spend together. Guests and extended family members have yet to arrive, making it easier to focus on each other. It also offers the opportunity to share vows privately if you decide not to speak them publicly.

3. It means the photographer won't have to take you away for photos immediately following the ceremony. Instead you can enjoy cocktails with guests -talk about the best happy hour of your life! We'll schedule bridal party and family photography directly following a first look so you have extra time to spend with them at the party!

4. Still dreaming of an aisle moment? You'll get that, too, and feel all the more relaxed and confident for it :) Couples tell us this time allowed them to sincerely express what they were feeling without the pressure of onlooking guests. As someone who opted for a first look, I love how it offered more than one photo op and chance to press pause and let the feeling of the day sink in!

Your wedding is just that, yours. Whether you choose to hold a first look or not, there is no right or wrong way. What matters most is that you are happy and comfortable with the plan to capture the first time you see each other.
