Hello!

Are you planning on doing a first look on your wedding day? If you answered yes, then this blog post is for YOU MY FRIEND!  While I know your wedding photographer will be walking you through the process, I wanted to share 5 different first look ideas to consider swiping for your own wedding.

 

  1. Tap On The Shoulder – Have your partner face away from you.  Walk up behind him and place your hand on his shoulder, gently tapping them. They’ll turn around voila!  [SEE EXAMPLE]
  2. Hug From Behind – Similar to the tap on the shoulder, have your partner face away from you.  Walk up behind them and give them a hug from behind and whisper something in their ear. Pause for a second, and let them turn around and see you! [SEE EXAMPLE]
  3. Behind The Door – Is there a beautiful door at your wedding venue.  Have your photographer creek the door open with your partner standing on the outer side of the door.  Your photographer will place you where you need to be on the opposite side of the door.  Reach for each others hand, take a deep breath and then both peak around the corner to see one another. [SEE EXAMPLE]
  4. Far Away – Have your partner looking away from you as you approach them.  Stop about 5-10 feet away and call out their name, when they turn to see you they’ll see you full frame and really get a feel for that killer dress! Then walk in and embrace.  [SEE EXAMPLE]
  5. Blindfold – Have your partner blindfolded until your positioned to where you want to be.  Either have him take of the blindfold himself or give him a smooch first and then help him take off the blindfold. [SEE EXAMPLE]
