@mariegerbasi:  I believe they call those the “first touch”.  I love those photos!  Each of you on one side of the door, grab a hold of one another’s hand, and tell each other you love one another and how excited you’re going to get married!

@mariegerbasi:  I agree with the PP that if you are concerned about seeing one another before the wedding, do a “first touch” photo. My Fiance and I are doing actual “first look” photos which I was not completely convinced with initially but then I saw some of the “first look” photos that our photographer has done and they were gorgeous. And also we are doing them because our wedding ceremony is at 6 pm with a reception immediately following and we don’t want to keep people waiting at the reception! There are some creative “first touch” photo ideas if you Google them or look on Pinterest. =)

@mariegerbasi:  We didn’t do either. But I wish we would have done a first touch. It would have calmed my nerves a bit!

@mariegerbasi:  I would definitely talk to your wedding photographer and see what ideas they may have or have done in the past to accomodate the “first touch” or “first look” photos. Or if you have friends that are already married and see what they did. I didn’t even know what either types of pictures were until our wedding photographer mentioned it after my Fiance and I got engaged. LOL πŸ™‚

@mariegerbasi:  Darling Husband and I actually did a first look – he was REALLY nervous about it, and originally didn’t want to do one at all. But looking back, it was still one of his favorite moments from our wedding day! πŸ˜€ I love the photos we got from it too!

@mariegerbasi: I agree with @pengoala:! Our first look was one of our favorite parts of the day and it didn’t ruin the emotion or feeling we had while I was walking down the aisle! We weren’t sure about doing it at first in fear it might ruin the whole feel behind seeing the bride walk down the aisle. But the more we thought about it, it just made sense.

I’ve posted this on another “first look” this is our highlight video: http://vimeo.com/45679154
It might be able to give you a good feel as to how the “first look” worked well for us. My Dad and I tricked my Husband haha I think it kinda shook all of our nerves a bit though πŸ˜›

Good luck in making your decision!
