Today on the blog, I am sharing Brighton and Shaden’s romantic first look session in the snowy winter wonderland of Jordan Pines, Utah. In addition, I am sharing three reasons you should consider while deciding whether or not to do a first look! Whether you are an LDS bride caught up in the pros and cons of doing a formal session before your temple wedding or a bride debating whether or not to do a first look on your big day, I’m confident today’s blog will give you some key takeaways to help you make your decision!
Three Reasons to Do a First Look
- It takes the pressure off! So many things go into planning a wedding. Thus, it’s easy to lose yourself in the stress of it all. Doing a first look with your significant is a special way to be reminded of the bigger picture at hand. Who you are marrying is much more important than the wedding you have planned. Celebrating this as just the two of you before the rest of your loved ones join you is one of those moments you will remember forever. I guarantee it.
- Two words: alone time. Another benefit of doing a first look is the private, intimate space it creates. Your first look involves three people: you, your significant other and your photographer. Meaning, you can kiss and embrace without all the eyes on you. In addition, a first look is often the only alone time couples get on their big day. Take advantage of the privacy and enjoy those tender and sweet moments with one another!
- It makes your wedding experience last a little longer. No matter what, your wedding day is going to go by in a flash. If you want to make it last a little longer, a first look session will give you that extra time together. Besides, who wouldn’t want more time in their dress?!
