Victor Villodre | San Diego Wedding & Portrait Photographer
First Look


The first look is a new tradition that many couples choose to take part in. The couple chooses to see each other for the first time in a moment taking place before they walk down the aisle. The anticipation and private nature of them moment allows them to have this moment to themselves before their vows with their friends and family surrounding them.

Is the first look right for you? There is no right or wrong choice. Whatever you choose will be the right way for you and will be memorable. I am offering my thoughts as a photographer so that when you do your research, you can hear different opinions and decide what will work best for your wedding day. When it comes the time for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time, there are only two ways to photograph the moment:  before or after the ceremony.  Which should you pick?  Well, both have their pros and cons.  Let's compare them.
