Lets Talk About the FIRST LOOK


In an entire wedding day there are few moments that are more touching and emotional to photograph than the first time the bride and groom see each other. The bride may spend hours getting ready, starting early in the morning to make sure her hair and makeup are exactly what she imagined. There are a few different ways brides and grooms choose to see each other for the first time and they are all magical.

Before the Ceremony

Many brides and grooms decide to see each other before the ceremony. They take this time to make it really special and often times these are some of the most treasured, romantic pictures of the entire day. This can be a lot of fun – surprising each other and enjoying this unique time together while getting rid of some wedding jitters. Another bonus to this time is that you can do the majority of the pictures before the ceremony so you do not have a large time gap between the wedding and the reception.

Traditional First Look Down the Isle

The more traditional first look is when the bride walks down the isle toward the groom. Often times, the groom will be overcome with emotion, or at least makes a great face when he sees his bride for the first time. And then there is usually an equally beautiful reaction from the bride as she walks down the aisle with her father.

There isn’t a right or wrong way to for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time. Whichever you decide, this moment will certainly be special. You and your photographer can work hard to get the best possible picture that captures the moment in the way you want.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package

 

1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
