First Looks, do you believe in them?
The old wives tale states that seeing the Groom
before the big moment is bad luck for the soon to be wed couple.
Here at Jamie Reinhart Photography, we love them! There are plenty of
advantages with doing a First Look. Below is a few of them that I put together for you!
When you don’t have a First Look a majority of your portraits have to be
squeezed in after the ceremony and before the reception. Typically that window
of time is about an hour and often covers family, wedding party and of course
the Bride and Groom. A First Look gives you and your photographer more
time during your wedding day to get those portraits taken care of. All without
being rushed or worried about your waiting wedding guests!
Though exciting and fun your wedding day can also be hectic with the days
activities. A First Look gives you the chance to slow down and share a special
moment together. A special moment that opens up other options like perhaps
praying together or exchanging notes that you’ve written for each other.
The possibilities are endless and make for great pictures!
Sometimes the big reveal can be a little nerve wracking, in the best way
of course! A First Look can help ease those nerves and take some of the
pressure off when walking down the aisle. Making it easier to focus on
what’s most important, your new Groom!
A unique twist to the First Look option is having an additional one with
your dad! Dad’s are often the first men we learn to love. Your wedding
day is just as big and emotional for them as it is for you. Giving away their
not so little girl, is hard and having a moment together away from everyone
else is so sweet and special.
