Who have you noticed being the most emotional at weddings? Many times, I’ve found it’s the father of the bride who is the most emotional. While bride and groom “first look” sessions have been becoming more and more popular, a southern tradition that is making a comeback during weddings are father-daughter “first look” sessions. First looks are not just for you and your future hubby; here are 5 reasons why you should consider doing a daddy-daughter first look:
1. Quality Time Before Wedding Time
On the special day, mothers and daughters get to spend time together before the wedding getting dressed, getting their hair and makeup done, setting up, etc. A father-daughter first look is a great opportunity for brides to share some quality time and special moments with their father before the wedding as well.
2. Wedding Traditions
Many brides do not want to break the tradition of allowing the groom to see her in her wedding dress before she walks down the aisle. However, they would love to have a session that captures the sweet and precious moment of their father seeing them as a bride for the first time.
3. Special Moment and Memory
It can be tough for a father to see her daughter all grown up as a bride for the first time. Seeing her on her wedding day before she walks down the aisle may be the first time it really hits him that she’s truly all grown up. Being able to capture his reaction and emotion at the very moment that he first sees his beautiful baby girl as a bride is so incredibly special and sweet.
4. The First Man She Ever Loved
A father-daughter first look allows the bride to share the first look with the other most important man in her life – the first man she ever loved.
5. Giving Away His Baby Girl
After all, the father is giving away his baby girl. He deserves a first look too and for it to be captured in beautiful photographs for the family to cherish forever. And oh! The emotion you’ll capture. Seeing his baby girl as a bride can bring a whirlwind of emotions to a father. Having a father-daughter first look allows you to capture it all.
