First Look – From a Pro

Last night, Lauren Grove – coordinator and super-author of the amazing Every Last Detail Blog (which is quickly taking over as one of my favorite bridal inspiration blogs!) – was a Twittering frenzy about the pros and cons of doing a “First Look”. My brides, you should definitely check out her blog post and see what she thinks and why she regrets not doing one.

I’m always hinting (sometimes not so subtle) about all the reasons why a First Look is an awesome addition to your wedding day. From a photographer’s view (and one that has 2 photographers standard in ALL of her wedding collections…hint, hint) – it allows us to completely capture every second of this amazing moment. It’s one of those moments that you never get a second chance to recreate. Being able to put photographers on both sides of you and your very-soon-to-be-groom gives us this amazing opportunity to document the laughter, tears, hugs and reaction when you get to see each other for the very first time.

Make sure you go check out Lauren’s blog, and read all about her experiences and the pros and cons from other brides, photographers and coordinators. Then, let’s talk about how we can include the First Look in to your wedding day!

(And PS – Lauren used one of my favorite wedding “First Look” series of Terry and Beth Hockenberry from their December Jacksonville wedding).

So what to do you think? First Look – yay or neigh?
