To do a First Look or Not

One of the most commonly asked questions from our brides is, should we do a first look or not? They ask our advice – because they want to know what will make their day better/run smoother/best photo op… and we definitely have our opinions, but ultimately, the couple has to pick what works best for THEM. We can run a wedding with a first look or not – no problem. But what happens is, couples don’t think about it until they are closer to the date, and then they feel like they just want to ask us what we want. So plan ahead – ask people who did it, and who didn’t. See what experience you want for your big day. And just for you, we put together a little pro/con list based on our weddings and what our couples have said!

For those of you wondering what a first look is, we’ll start there before we move into the pros and cons.
