This next reason for a First Look Session is mainly for the ladies. The excitement of seeing your soon-to-be-husband is a special moment. Just like your first date, you want your hair and makeup fresh, your dress to look perfect, and to see that glimmer in his eyes.

Instead of waiting until after the ceremony and standing through all of the family photos afterwards, why not reserve some “us time” to take his breath away beforehand?

Rather than putting off the gratification of knocking him off his feet, enjoy his genuine reaction when he sees you for the very first time.

      Robin, thank you so much for your kind words! Ever since we started educating our clients on the option of First Look photos, they’ve really taken a liking to it. My goal is only to inform our clients of their options, rather than to persuade them one way or the other. They really appreciate being educated on it and most of the time they go for it :)
