Debating a First Look ? Let STORIES Photography talk you into one.
1. It's Intimate
There will be a ton of “firsts” on wedding day. Take this opportunity to see each other for the first time as bride and groom and begin your day as it should be ~ together.
2. It's Memorable
We’ll fade into the background (of course, we’ll keep shooting) you two can whisper sweet nothings to each other and we’ll capture the romance, trust us.
3. It's Time-saving
Now let’s get practical. Without a First Look, every single family or bridal party photograph, before the ceremony, is going to be missing the Mr. or the Mrs. and therefore become somewhat obsolete, immediately following the ceremony.
4. It's Nerve Calming
At STORIES Photography we will be fixin' to talk all wedding couples into a First Look. We succeed about 95% of the time. We're runnin' right at 100% testimony to the First Look tradition calming both bride and groom nerves.
5. It's a Photographer’s Dream
Of course, we want the $ shot. But what we really want is to capture your personalities and not a worried brow or one eye watching a clock that doesn’t stop ticking all day.
6. It's a Guest Pleaser
If wedding party, bridesmaid, groomsmen, family shots are done by ceremony time the guest waiting time becomes minimal.
7. It's Refreshing
After a First Look there’s always a quick opportunity to refresh make-up, fix the hair, or grab a beverage.
8. It's One Day Only
Your wedding day is only so long. If you don’t have a First Look and you have an afternoon ceremony---wedding day can morph quickly into wedding evening, and before you know it … it’s over.
9. It's Conducive
Grandma’s & Children will always do better with photographs when they’re not thinking about eating and napping.
10. It's Intimate
Did we already say this? We can’t stress it enough. Team up early and give yourselves the gift of first look, first kiss, first promises, first “I’ll always love you,’s” Then
As strongly as we believe in the First Look, it’s your call. No worries, if you decide not to “see” each other beforehand.We’ll still do our darndest to capture both bride and groom at the ceremony first look, because we know happy bride and groom = one more happy wedding day story.
