1. Calm Your Nerves
Seeing your other half before your ceremony can calm those nerves. Not to mention those first look photos that turn out amazing! Those natural smiles will shine through, we promise!
2. Alone Time
On your wedding day, you are going to spend A LOT of time with your wedding party and guests which is why some alone time before the ceremony can be the only time you get the entire day. With the alone time comes more calming of the nerves as you can talk while taking a deep breath together.
3. Look Your BEST!
The best part about formal photos at the beginning of your day is YOU LOOK THE BEST! Your hair has just been done, makeup on point, and the tux is wrinkle free. Get those photos that you will cherish for years to come.
4. Get More Photos
More time = more photos. You will be less rushed between the ceremony and cocktail hour if you get a few of your couples shots before the ceremony. It would be a shame to look back and wish you had more time for photos. Remember, your ceremony can run longer which can only add to time constraints.
5. Spend More Time Celebrating
Enjoy your cocktail hour with your guests because you will have gotten more photos before the ceremony. The smiles are only starting at this point of the day, and they are all smiling at you!
