"First Look" Photos

Recommended Posts

I am only doing the first look because of the time of year I am getting married and how early the sun sets.  If I were getting married when the sun sets after say 6:30 PM, I would wait and have him see me for the first time when I am walking down.  But the sun will set at 5:10pm on my wedding day and I really don't want to have the ceremony so early (so there is light after the ceremony for pictures) that my guests have to wander off and entertain themselves before the night cocktail hour & reception.

I didn't discover first look till I was browsing weddingbee and then once I saw it I noticed many people were doing it...I like the idea that not just for the sake of time and daylight you get to have that private moment (because it won't be easy to get later) I think I'd like to have all of the wedding party pictures done in before the afternoon ceremony...


clgriffi those were great details

Great ideas!  I've always wanted to do the first look photos, but I truly want it to be a private bride and groom moment (with the photographer of course, haha).  My best friend who go married 2 years ago did the first look photo BUT it was right outside her condo before we were getting into the limo so the entire wedding party was standing right there!  Lol yes very awkward for us and you could tell the bride and groom didn't feel very comfortable either.  So when it comes to my big day I'm making a point to only have the photographer and my FI.  I think this will help capture the best moments.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
