Why Dave Bigler thinks every couple should do a first look.
I am a huge fan of the first look. Not because I am a photographer and it allows me more time to get photos, and not because the bride and groom get to attend their cocktail hour (which both of those are good reasons). I am a fan of the first look because I believe it facilitates a more laid back and relaxed wedding day.
