First look photos are all the rage – the sentimental moment the groom lays eyes on his blushing bride in her beautiful gown – nervousness leading up to the moment and then it’s emotional overload as tears begin to flow like kitchen faucets. That’s love. And it’s a beautiful thing to capture. But some find it bittersweet as the traditional first glance has been the moment the bride turns the corner to walk down the aisle.

The latest trend is the “sort of” first look – capturing the couple together in a photo pre-wedding without them seeing each other. Whether they’re standing back to back or blindfolded, we LOVE this.
