Put a blindfold on your future spouse so that he or she can’t peek at you until you’re ready. Then you can take some cute pictures and untie it so the two of you can revel in how special this moment truly is. Or, if you choose, you can leave the blindfold on as a bit of a tease before you walk down the aisle. This way, you can be photographed together without him or her actually seeing you in your bridal ensemble. I mean, how cute is this?
Have an audience
If you want, you can get your bridal party involved with the first look moment as well. Have them standing at a distance to watch the whole thing go down. After all, it’s likely they’re just as excited to see how he or she will react when you reveal yourself.
Of course you’ll want a first look with your future spouse, but the moment your mom and dad see you all dressed up and ready to walk down the aisle, there’s likely to be some emotions, and those are just as worthy of being caught by your photographer. This will be a photo that you and your parents can look back on for years to come. Many brides forget to capture this moment, but you’ll be glad that you did. Just take it from this breathtaking photo of a dad admiring his stunning daughter-turned-bride. This bride took a more dramatic approach by making her grand entrance down the staircase to her smiling father.
