What is the First Look?
It is the first time the bride and groom see each other on their wedding day. The photographer usually stages the groom with his back turned. The bride quietly walks up behind him, and either taps him on the shoulder or calls his name. He turns around, and the photographer, somewhere in the distance, captures the raw emotion of the moment. The First Look usually happens before the ceremony with the bride and groom alone in a quiet, romantic setting. It is one of my favorite wedding moments next to the Yichud, which I know is Jewish, but I think everyone should have one.
Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of a First Look. My mother would be one of those persons. She still prefers the traditional British custom of the groom being the LAST person to see the bride. If everyone were like her, we may never have moments like these (pictured above).
