The first look was traditionally the moment the bride appeared down the aisle.
Nowadays with fewer church weddings, the aisle may be a path in the sand lined with metates or stones. Because sunset weddings have also become popular, if family portraits are planned for after the ceremony, they might be in the dark.
So…think back, and plan the family photographs for before the wedding. And so that the “first look” still be symbolic, it can be planned as part of the pre-ceremony series of images just after getting ready and lead right into the family portraits.
