A bride’s perspective on a First Look

More and more couples are redefining tradition and choosing to incorporate a First Look into their wedding day.  This allows for a couple to share a private moment with one another and make time for photos together prior to the ceremony.  We asked Jenn, a recent bride whose wedding at The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh we photographed in October, to share her thoughts on the experience:

“My husband and I decided to incorporate a “first look” into our wedding day fairly early in the wedding planning process.  Our wedding ceremony and reception were scheduled for later in the day and it was very important for us to have enough time together for photographs (and enough daylight for outside photographs) but also to allot enough time to spend with our guests later in the evening.  Doing a “first look” was the perfect way to satisfy these needs: it gave us a chance to spend time together before the ceremony to have all of our pictures taken as well as freeing up time after the wedding ceremony to spend with our guests, rather than rushing to take pictures before the reception.  It also helped to ease our overall feelings of nervousness since we were able to spend time together privately, separate from the chaos of the day.

Our pictures really capture the emotion of the moment when we first saw each other and I am so thankful that we have this memory documented to enjoy for years to come.  I absolutely recommend utilizing a “first look” if you are concerned about time management, nervousness, or just want to spend extra time with your partner-to-be on such an amazing day.”
