First Look with Bridesmaids
Bridesmaid first looks are so fun!! You’ve selected all of these girls to stand with you in this moment so why not use the chance to show off your dress.

First Look with Parents
Wedding days are sentimental for parents and often times its a day they’ve been looking forward to for your whole life. Setting this time apart to celebrate those figures in your life is a touching sentiment that won’t be lost on your parents.
So if you’re Daddy’s girl or you have anyone in your life that stands in a parental role, you can use this time to say thanks and show off that special relationship. Often times moms, or mom figures, will help you get ready and once you’re all zipped up that first moment you turn around will be incredibly special as well.
First Look with ANYONE
