I am trying to get FI onboard with the first look, so I’d like to show him some of the amazing photos so he can see that it’s a whole production, not just like “hey, what’s up.” (If that makes sense…) I did a search but most of the existing threads I found didn’t really have any responses. Anyone care to share? Or maybe you have some inspiration pics? Thanks!

FI and I decided to do a first look, so I’m getting ideas too. We were forced into that decision (based on bad lighting and timing of the ceremony) but am so happy we are doing it! I look at these pictures and tear up everytime!!!!
I know I’m gonna be a hot mess during ours! lol

I am so glad we did the first look. It really relived a lot of my stress and anxiety that day. Once we were together I felt so much more relaxed! We got married outside at a big fancy ranch. The pictures are inside the house. He waited for me at the end of the hallway. I came down the stairs and had to walk all the way down the hallway before he turned around. So glad we did it!
Here is a link to our day of editing from our cinematographers (first look also makes for good video!) our first look is around 53 seconds.

This one is great because you can see me crying in the mirror right before he turns around:

I would highly recommend it as well! It was great to just get all that excitement and anxiousness out of the way so we could relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
