We didn’t do a first look, but I think it depends on how many pictures and locations you are planning on. Maybe your photographer could help you figure it out? Good luck!

@windcriesamy:  I would ask your photographer how long they think they will need for them to complete “first look” photos. I know my photographer said that the “first look” photos only usually take about 30 minutes or so and that we should factor in another hour or so for bridal party and family pictures before out ceremony. 🙂

My photographer has us doing:

Bride ‘getting ready’ shots (with bridesmaids & moms): 30 mins

First Look / Bride & Groom pics: 1 hour

Bridal Party & Family Pics: 1 hour

All before the ceremony.
