As a wedding photographer, every client you book will have unique timelines, ideas, and expectations for their big day. One of the differences your client may have in their timeline is whether or not they will take part in a first look wedding photography session. A wedding first look is when the bride and groom decide to see each other before the ceremony in their wedding attire. The main purpose of a first look is to allow the couple to experience this special time privately and more intimately.
Here at ShootDotEdit, we see plenty of first look wedding photos as a part of our color correction services for photographers. And since we know it can be one of the most important parts of the wedding day, we reached out to Ruth Terrero of Ruth Terrero Photography, a wedding photographer who is no stranger to mastering the first look, to gather her insights on the best ways to set up and shoot the first look for your clients.
