When you're wedding planning and figuring out your day-of schedule, you may wonder if a first look is right for you and your partner. A first look is when a couple sees each other on a wedding day before the ceremony. Of course, there's pros and cons for having a first look. Some of the cons include:
- You see each other earlier and get your portraits done together earlier, which means... waking up earlier! Which depending on your rehearsal, could be a little tricky!
- The time of the day you'd get your portraits done, isn't ideal for lighting. Photographers like to avoid the middle of the day for pictures to avoid crazy lighting situations.
- A first look is less traditional, and potentially different from what you were always imagining for your wedding day.
