Making Time For A First Look Photo Session

Professional Photo By: Wes Atkinson Photography

A first look photo shoot makes it possible to document that special moment where the bride reveals herself in her dress to her partner. Traditionally, that moment takes place during the wedding ceremony. However, with a first look, you can make sure it is clearly documented. Of course, this session has other benefits. By taking photos together before your event begins, you can reduce the amount of time you need for pictures between the ceremony and reception. Because you have sixteen hours of access to your venue space thanks to Texas Old Town’s generous amenities package, you can find plenty of time to have your pictures taken. You can also count on finding a lovely backdrop for pictures, as you will be surrounded by beautiful Texas Hill Country!

Should We Plan To Take First Look Photos?

Some couple prefer to save that first look moment for the ceremony itself, with all of your guests on hand to witness it. It is up to you if you want to preserve this tradition, or create a special set of images with your first look photo session. With that said, there are a few advantages that come with your first look photos that you might appreciate.

  • You can shorten the time between your ceremony and reception, as you can skip straight to pictures with family members and bridal party members.
  • You can make sure that the “first look moment” is captured by your photographer.
  • The act of interacting with each other before your ceremony can help you relieve some of your pre-event nerves.

Fitting The First Look Into Your Day-Of Arrangements

Because you have sixteen hours of access to your venue space, you can find plenty of time to take your first look photos. Because many people enjoy having a record of the pre-wedding preparations, your photographer should anticipate arriving at the venue well before the start of the ceremony. Make sure you and your partner give them an idea of when you expect to take pictures, and make sure you have a spot for your photos selected before you are ready to take them.
