I've always wanted to do First Look photos, I love all the emotion that is captured in the pictures, the opportunity to ease nerves, ability to go to different locations, fresh hair and makeup, and no big gap between ceremony and reception. But I've been having a hard time convincing FH that doing all of the photos early will help with the overall flow and timeliness of the day. Has anyone done First Look and Bridal Party photos before the ceremony? Did it save time?
Here is the breakdown of how I envision this timeline:
FL & BP before ceremony (at various locations)
Family Photos after ceremony (at ceremony site)
Mingle with guests for some of cocktail hr.
Receiving Line into reception for anyone we missed @ cocktail hr.
