First-Look Moments to Capture on Your Wedding Day | Outer Banks Wedding Photographers

Blue Poppy Wedding Photography Outer Banks First Look Bride Groom

Aren’t first-look moments romantic? I absolutely adore capturing them! The anticipation builds as the bride makes her way to her groom, and then such heartfelt emotions are revealed. It is certainly a beautiful moment to capture.

Did you know there are actually other types of first-look photo sessions that you can take part in on your wedding day?

I believe that every couple should get the most out of their wedding photography! That’s why Blue Poppy Weddings has gathered some of our top first-look photos that we can capture on your own big day:

  • ROMANTIC – with the Groom
    The classic, most well-known first-look photo session is one you take part in with your partner! Of course you may spend every day together already, but you have yet to see one another as a stunning bride and handsome groom. The emotions revealed in that moment should be preserved! Smiles, nervous laughs, tears of happiness…these expressions will add so much  love to your collection of photos.

  • FUN – with your Bridesmaids
    Your bridesmaids most likely know what your wedding dress looks like, and will be with you as you get all dolled up for your walk down the aisle. However, they haven’t seen you as a complete bride just yet! By having a first-look photo session with them, you can capture their excitement as they lay eyes on you first the first time as a bride, squeals of delight and even a few tears, you’ll want to remember this.
  • HEARTFELT –  with your Parents
    You probably have a special bond with your parents. After all, they raised you, and are now giving you away on your special day to begin your new journey in life with your husband. This is likely an emotional time for you both; capture the emotions by taking part in a first-look photo session with them. Their reaction experiencing their little girl all grown up, getting ready to walk down the aisle –  and your reaction to theirs, makes for moments you will definitely want to be captured.

A first-look photo session will add tons of love and emotion to your collection of photos! 

If you are still searching for a wedding photographer on the Outer Banks of North Carolina to capture your once-in-a-lifetime celebration, contact us at Blue Poppy Weddings! As a fun team of professional wedding photographers, we would be thrilled  to be a part of your happily ever after.

Until Next Time ~

I have an affinity to all things light and airy.  I love color, sunshine, romance, and laughter.  I love inspirational quotes, meeting new people, flowers, and the idea of finishing a great book.  My go-to drink is coffee.  My outlet is dance. I have always been an artist, and with over 250 weddings under my photography belt, I am super excited to bring my experiences and absolute love for beautiful imagery to serving brides on the Outer Banks.
