i always try and advise that you have a little "first look" series of photos where you might be hidden somewhere and you walk out and he sees you. or he is blind folded or something like that. it ends up being a much better shot then when you walk down the aisle because you can capture the two of you right there and not you all the way down the aisle and him up front. plus its more intimate and personal and you can have a little time together to just enjoy the moment.
then i like to take a few pictures of just the two of you and maybe the wedding party photos. then after the ceremony you can get the family photos done and some more pohtos of just the two of you maybe later on with the sun setting or wherever. dont try and get it all done right at the end. it always ends up getting rushed and photos sacrificed..
BUTTTTT if you are really traditional and want just have him see you when you walk down the aisle just make sure that you stand firm and give yourself plenty of time and get them taken care of.
just realize that the tradition of only seeing you down the aisle for the first time and the veil comes from pre-arranged marriages where they didnt want the groom running off if he saw the bride. and im willing to bet that isnt the case with you two...
just dont see each other before reveal photo and it really makes for some great photos
hope that helps

100% of these couples say it was the best thing they ever could have done! there are only advantages to doing this...

I think I still have that link bookmarked at home.
My sister had some taken before the ceremony, but she and the groom were in the same pictures, but could not see each other!
They were very well done... for example, she was upstairs looking out a window - window open, and he was downstairs.
We did group and family pictures afterwards and then once we were on our honeymoon we had a pro photographer take our romantic pictures.
