There is a traditional element in weddings that we all imagine, walking down the aisle to see our significant other waiting on the other end. What a rush! Here’s the thing, everyone will get that moment, but it might not be best to have that be the first time you and your significant other see each other be at that moment. When you walk down the aisle you will get to see your partner for the first time, but not without hundreds of other pupils from the pews. Now, the first look is becoming more and more important to couples for five important reasons. Here’s why I think you should without a doubt add a first look to your Las Vegas wedding day timeline.
Creating a Perfect Intimate Moment
Here’s a look into your future on your wedding day… you will not get a second alone together until your wedding is over. This means by the time you see each other, alone, your makeup will be running from your happy tears, hair a mess from all the dancing and your feet in pain from dancing.
It’s going to be a long day, so you owe it to yourself to have a moment as your glamorous pre-worn out selves to cherish this moment in silence and solitude with one another before your ceremony and reception. It’s going to be a whirl-wind. Trust me when you walk down the aisle there will be a newfound realization that this is your wedding day, and a flood of emotions will hit you all over again.
Get more portraits from your Las Vegas Wedding first look
Plain and simple, blocking out time before the ceremony for this special time together means you get more portraits together! These are the pictures you put up on your mantel for years. There is no rush to get them done in a quick hour.
Don’t miss your cocktail hour of your Las Vegas Wedding
If you skip the first look there is a good chance will miss your entire cocktail hour. Your family photos and your portraits are done while guests enjoy cocktail hour. Managing family photos on top of your portraits are a lot to ask in a short amount of time. I highly suggest giving yourself more time to take about 40% more portrait photos.
Ditch the jitters
Getting a peek of your significant other before you walk down the aisle is a stress release to say the least! Give yourself some comfort and time to breath with your person that makes you feel complete by having a first look.
It’s natural time together
This is not another “session.” This time that you’re spending together and we are secretly photographing. We aren’t posing you like in the engagement pictures or like we will be in your family portraits. We will be flies on the wall documenting your special time together.
