13 Creative First Look Ideas for Your Wedding
Along with helping calm your nerves before the ceremony, a first look is a great way to capture unique, creative wedding photos while your makeup is fresh and excitement is at its peak. Plus, it’s the perfect chance to share a special moment alone, just the two of you. And with most of those pictures out of the way, it allows you to get to the reception quickly after the “I dos” for the much-anticipated signature cocktail, dancing and of course, CAKE. Need some inspiration? We’ve got 13 fun setups for a first look you’ll always remember.
1. Hand Holding: You’ll be holding his hand for the rest of your life, so why not reach out right before the big dress reveal? In fact, a photo op like this would be super cool even if you weren’t seeing each other before the ceremony. (via Kristen Booth)
6. Turn the Knob: Before turning the knob and revealing your gown in all its glory, allow time for your photographer to capture a creative shot like this one. (via Melissa Young Photography)
8. Blindfolded: Worried that you or your sweetie won’t be able to resist stealing a glimpse before the time is right? His-and-hers blindfolds to the rescue! (via Emily Kiel Photography)
13. The Long Hallway: Capture the anticipation of the moment by staging your first look inside a long hallway or spacious room. We especially love the excited smile on this groom’s face. (via Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema)
