This first look at The Bowery Hotel is one of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer. Especially in New York.
A first look is a moment between a bride and groom that takes place before their wedding ceremony. It is a private moment where the couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day. The purpose of a first look is for the couple to have a chance to share an intimate moment together and take in the emotions of the day before the hustle and bustle of the ceremony and reception. Some couples also choose to do a first look to allow more time for photos with the wedding party and family before the ceremony.
There are pros and cons to doing a first look, and ultimately the decision is up to the couple. Some couples prefer the traditional approach of seeing each other for the first time when the bride walks down the aisle, while others enjoy the opportunity to have a private moment together before the ceremony. There is no right or wrong answer, and it is important for the couple to consider their own personal preferences and what will make them the most comfortable on their wedding day.
