Should You Do A First Look At Your Wedding?



I started Blake Pollino Films in 2017 and opinions on first looks have been a roller coaster, seemingly changing every year. Should you see each other before the ceremony? Or should you stick to tradition and see each other as the bride walks down the aisle?

One unique and increasingly popular way to capture the emotions and intimacy of your wedding is through a first look video. Here are just a few benefits of having a first look video for your wedding:

  1. Capturing the emotional reactions of the couple: A first look video allows you to capture the emotional reactions of the couple as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day. This can be a truly magical and special moment that you will want to remember forever.

  2. Having a more intimate and personal moment: A first look video provides an opportunity for the couple to have a private and intimate moment together before the chaos of the ceremony and reception. This can be a great way to take a moment to relax and enjoy each other's company before the big day.

  3. Sharing the video with family and friends: A first look video is a unique and special way to share the wedding day with your family and friends, even if they couldn't be there in person. This can be especially meaningful if you have loved ones who are unable to attend the wedding due to distance or COVID-related travel restrictions.

  4. Adding a personal touch to your wedding: A first look video is a great way to add a personal and meaningful touch to your wedding. By choosing a special location and setting for the video, you can make it a reflection of your relationship and your personalities.

  5. Enhancing your wedding video: A first look video can add an extra layer of emotion and intimacy to your wedding video, making it a truly special and memorable piece of art.

  6. A first look allows for easier scheduling. Seeing each other earlier in the day allows you to move other parts of your timeline before your ceremony instead of trying to squeeze it all in right after.

As you can see, there are many benefits to having a first look video for your wedding. If you are considering this option, we recommend working with a professional wedding videographer who can help you plan and execute a beautiful and meaningful first look video.
