Should we have a first look?

Hi there. I can see lots of couples are having first looks. Is the first look a good idea? What's the best part about having a first look and what would be a reason not to do it, from a photography perspective? Thanks!

Maryke de Villiers Photography

Hi. I did a first look recently with a mini couple shoot before the ceremony and the grooms reaction was priceless. It all depends on how you want to experience the moment when you and your groom see each other for the first time. 

Doing a first look:

 - It's more intimate

 - The groom can have a very long look at his bride without the celebrant interrupting the moment

 - You are more relaxed when you have the ceremony since you got most of the excitment out with the first look

 - You get more confident with the photographer and being infront of the camera which makes the rest of the wedding photos more relaxed and not awkward.

If I have to sum it up I would say it's just a really special and intimate moment between bride and groom.

Not doing a first look:

 - If you are looking for a very traditional wedding, I would suggest this route

 - In my experience it makes the moment bigger when he sees you for the first time while walking down the isle

 - The reaction from both bride and groom when they meet at the altar is a great reaction (there's usually tears)

Both scenarios are really special and it really all depends on how you want to experience the moment. I do not think you will regret doing a first look as it's just such an intimate and special moment.

From a photography perspective, I personally do not have an issue with either. I've done weddings with and without a first look and both are special in their own way.

Not sure if this helps at all.


Is this an unreasonable photography timeline?

2pm - final stages of getting ready shots, both boys and girls on the same property 3pm - ceremony, no group shots or congrats afterwards, 3.30pm - straight into family shots (14 people all up, 2 families) the property then a few bridal party shots at same location as family shots, 4.10pm - Bridal party and bride & groom shots off property (5 min drive) 5.30pm - Bridal party re-entrance going into reception, 6.20pm - Sparkler shot 6.30pm - Dinner 8pm - Cake cut and first dance

Maryke de Villiers Photography

I wouldn't say it is unreasonable, as photos can go very quick if the photographer has an assistant that can help out. But I would add like 15 min to each time slot - there's a lot going on at a wedding and I know you say that you don't want to do the "congrats" after the ceremony, but there's alsway that one person that wants to hug and say congrats. The only concern I would have is the 2pm photoshoot - I would allow another 30min or so just to be sure you have everything covered since it is two seperate photoshoots. I hope this makes sense.
