Personally, I love the concept of a first look or bridal reveal. There is something about the romance of it all, something almost movie like. It's also another story within the story of the day and an opportunity to stir up emotions in a private and intimate setting. To see what I mean check out Tiffany and Dustin and their meeting at the fishing house in Cape Elizabeth. Here is the clip. I just love it!
The other benefit of the first look is that it moves your day backward. The first look is a perfect opportunity to get some images of the bride and groom together in private before the festivities begin. It also allows for wedding party and family photos can be done prior to the ceremony letting everyone simply enjoy cocktail hour with documentary photography only.
