4 First Look Ideas That Don’t Break Tradition
First Look wedding photos have grown to be quite popular in the last few years. They can be really emotional and unique, since they capture a genuinely magical moment. However, if you are superstitious and don’t want to break tradition when it comes to these things, you still have plenty of alternatives. Here are some of the ways that you can have a first look, without breaking the tradition that prevents the groom from seeing the bride in her wedding dress before she walks down the aisle.
- Do A First Look with Your Dad
Believe it or not, he is extremely nervous and he can’t wait to see his little girl as a bride. Give him the option to have all these marvelous emotions captured by a professional photographer, as part of a special shooting. Do your First Look photo session with your father and your album will look absolutely amazing!
- Do A First Look Without Actually Looking
Ask your photographer to capture you and your significant other with your backs turned to each other (so that you don’t see each other before the actual wedding). This can turn into something really emotional if you are both reading a love letter you wrote for each other – it will look really romantic in the picture, especially since the photographer will capture all the genuine, wonderful reactions you both show on your faces.
- Skip the Photo Shooting
Just meet with your loved one on the morning of your wedding and spend some time together. You can do this dressed as bride and groom, or you can do it any other way you feel comfortable (especially if you still want to stick to tradition and don’t see each other as a bride and groom before the ceremony).
- Do A Classic First Look and Include Your Wedding Party Too
If you want your First Look photos to be really romantic but fun as well, the best way to do this is to include the bridesmaids and the groomsmen as well. This could potentially save you quite a lot of time for the Cocktail Hour as well (which is excellent if you don’t want to stay away for the entire duration of the Cocktail Hour).
