Today we will let you know, what’s best to skip and forget about in order for the pictures to turn out great.
As wedding photographers of many years, we’ve seen it all.
So, what NOT to do during your first look photo shoot?
• Copy, mimic, be unoriginal
You want this amazing moment to be only about you two. You want it to be your beginning, and you want to create a history.
The first look photo shoot is a symbol of the newest chapter in your lives.
So don’t try recreating somebody else’s pictures 1:1.
Try to either let it happen on its own (with a general idea behind it of course) or pick and choose multiple elements from other shoots to create something fresh and unique.
As we mentioned above, the first look photo shoot marks the beginning of your new life, this is why you want to have enough time to not only take pictures, but also cherish this wonderful time between you and your spouse-to-be.
Haste will surely only deepen your imminent stress and may impact the work of your wedding photographers. So, schedule a wide enough window for these pictures.
Also, as it almost for sure will be an emotional moment, you may think about saving some time afterwards for the face and clothes touch-ups.

Happy tears are beautiful, yet they usually ruin the bride’s make-up.
• Do it for them, just you…
Last but not least, keep this moment to yourselves. As it was mentioned in the previous post, don’t take the entire wedding reception with you. Keep it private.
Additionally, we are all aware that these pictures are to be shown off – not only in your wedding photo album, but also social media like Instagram.
That’s a given.
Yet, remember to try to do it just for you and not for you following.
Take a step back and enjoy the chemistry between you.
Do you know why? You’re not going to have any do-overs . The first look moment is a one-of-a-kind experience and to make it truly magnificent, it’s best when it is not re-enacted.
As a conclusion, let your wedding photographers be your guides in this journey. Let us help you decide on all the do’s and don’ts of the first look pictures. In return you will receive not only a tangible memory in form of the wedding pictures but also a memory that you will never forget.
