Why We Love First Look Photos, Maggie & Travis

Posted on December 13th, 2023 by Melissa Paul

We Love a Private First Look

Honestly, we love it when our clients agree to do a First Look photo session on their wedding day! The photos that come from this precious time together are some of the best of the day, and we can’t wait to see them in the bride and groom’s photo album.

In case you don’t know, a First Look, or a Modern First Look, is when the bridal couple sees each other before their wedding ceremony. Most of the time, the First Look takes place in a quiet, romantic, and scenic setting (or several) with just the couple, their photographer, and the videographer in attendance. Without the audience of family and friends watching ensures lower stress and anxiety, and for sure, more authentic and emotional responses. All of which leads to phenomenal photographs that get to the heart of the reason for the wedding – LOVE.

Other Reasons to Do a Modern First Look

Aside from the sweet photos of the groom tearing up when he sees his bride all dressed up in her gorgeous gown, or the series of photos taken of the couple in soft, sexy light, and so forth, having a First Look before the ceremony is a smart choice because you get:

  • — Privacy! You can cry, scream, hug, kiss, laugh, or all of the above;
  • — More time for couple photos in different places around the hotel or resort;
  • — Lower stress, anxiety, and nervousness if photographed quietly together;
  • — Comfort, ease, and playfulness of working with the photographer just the two of you; and
  • — More time to mingle at your cocktail reception with a drink in your hand.

You Will Love a First Look, We Know You Will

To inspire you to consider a First Look, just take a look at the beautiful, real emotion between Maggie and Travis which their incredible wedding photographer, LA76 Photography caught on camera! Such wonderful keepsakes for the happy couple to have to remember their wedding day!
