Wedding Photography Ideas – First Look for the Father of the Bride – Portola Inn Atascadero Wedding

Bookmark this on Hatena Bookmark

I totally understand why many brides choose to hide from the groom until the ceremony.  I love seeing the emotional impact on the groom and actually for that matter, the whole wedding audience, as the bride appears for the first time in her dress and walks down the aisle.  It is a priceless moment and even the roughest, toughest grooms get misty eyed.

But much to my surprise I have also grown to love the idea of the “First Look”.  We usually set the groom up in a lovely, secluded location and have the bride sneak up from behind him and we get to capture all of the emotions of when they first see each other on their wedding day.  The real magic of the first look is that it gives the bride and groom more time to take in their wedding day together and photographers love it because it gives us more time to take pictures.  Many couples don’t want to keep their guests waiting too long and yet they know the pictures are going to be treasured sooooo thus the “First Look.”

But what about the priceless reaction of the Father of the Bride when he first sees his little girl?  Another priceless moment and while at this Portola Inn wedding I thought WOW we could do the “First Look” with the Dad.  I just loved capturing this.

Another great idea to personalize your wedding!
