The First Look will certainly help you to overcome jitters and angst. Once you accomplish this well- orchestrated Reveal (as your wedding planner or photographer will coordinate it for you), it will really help you to calm down and relax a little before the ceremony. In addition, this special moment is extremely intimate and romantic. The photographer will be there to capture the exact moment each of you see one another, and that will be exciting, memorable and beautiful.
There’s also another good reason for the First Look. It will add some time for personal photographs, especially your portraits, as your timeline is usually very tight after the ceremony. So the Reveal will allow you both to get many photographs together and not feel so rushed. And then after the ceremony you can get all of those family photographs, which are many, but very necessary. And if you don’t have lots of family photographs, then you might actually have time to make an appearance at the cocktail hour - how fun would that be! Catching up with guests at the Cocktail Hour will to free up time trying to see everyone during the reception banquet.
Bottom line, the First Look opens up more opportunity to relax during the ceremony and part-take in all the festivities after the important ceremony is over.
