Amanda and Jon are seen here at Rye Beach NH doing their First Look. This is by far the VERY BEST thing a couple can do. The jitters are gone and done with, formal photos are all done prior to ceremony. You then also get to enjoy the cocktail hour with family and friends. My experience has shown when you do all of the photos AFTER the ceremony, they are rushed through and simply not as good vs taking your time well before the ceremony. Parents may be concerned on starting photos 2 hours before the ceremony….my reply is always “do you have something more important to do that day”. 🙂 Check out THIS ARTICLE from another photographer as to his feelings on why the First Look is so crucial.
