You may be asking yourself that age old question- "To be or not to be". I know most of us lean a little towards tradition, but there are some compelling situations that make a first look worth the consideration. If you're wedding ceremony time is cutting it close to the sunset time, a first look ensures you have ample daylight with the ability to still sneak away for a sunset shot. Another reason couples have decided on a first look is to insure they have ample time to be comfortable and get some amazing photos. Typically, a regular timeline only allows for pictures during that cocktail hour between Ceremony and Reception, but this also includes taking family and wedding party pictures too, and can leave the couple feeling a little rushed going into the celebration. A first look grants you time to enjoy each others company in what's usually a more relaxed session allowing for more natural transitions and emotion.
