The first look or sneak peek is the moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day. No guests, no distractions. It is a very special moment that the bride and groom share that the photographer(s) capture with little to no interruptions.

Unlike the traditional reveal of the bride walking down the aisle as being the time when the couple sees each other, the first look is a more intimate moment shared between just the bride and groom. You can look into each other’s eyes, which only makes the moment more genuine. The bride isn’t worried about not tripping down the aisle, the groom isn’t trying to hold it together in front of all their guest, it is a moment when the two of you can take in and savor the moment of seeing each other just before you say your ‘I do’s.

The first look captures the initial reaction of the bride and groom and allows the two to act naturally when seeing each other for the first time.

You can cry, laugh, hug, kiss, and just simply be in the moment without having all your guests around. This not only yields beautiful one-of-a-kind images but will also leave you with some spare time to capture a few more couple’s images just after this tender moment.

The sneak peek is ideal because you both will be looking your best.

Make sure you leave a bit of time for photos right after your first look.

Your hair and makeup are still perfectly in place and gives you time to do any touch-ups before the ceremony. Including a sneak peek at your timeline also allows the photographers the opportunity to focus on capturing the reactions of some of the guests as the bride makes her way down the aisle during the ceremony, which is often missed because the focus is usually on the bride and groom’s expression and reactions to one another. Finally, the sneak peek is one of the best ways to eliminate and of the wedding day jitters. Since you already have the emotional part of seeing each other for the first time you are more relaxed and calm walking down the aisle and saying your vows.
