TO DO or NOT TO DO a FIRST REVEAL... That is the question?

The Milleridge Inn NY Wedding-0020.jpg

Let us start off by explaining what a first reveal is.

A FIRST REVEAL or FIRST LOOK is when the couple see’s each other before the actual ceremony.

Let us go into the PRO’s and CON’s of this decision.

PROS

A STRESS FREE wedding day. By having a first reveal you are able to get all of your photographs done prior to the wedding. This will allow you a sense of freedom once you walk down the aisle. You will be able to enjoy every aspect of your wedding and you will not be missing any of the party or fun.

COCKTAIL HOUR is yours! You, your bridal party, and your family will be able to attend all of cocktail hour. Since you have completed all your photos before hand you are free to drink, eat and mingle with all your guests.

STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHS! Having a first look will allow more time for your photographer to get all the images, poses and looks you want. This would be something you should discuss before so the photographer knows how much time is needed for this portion of the day.

CONS

EARLY START. Due to getting all your images done before hand you are looking at about 2 hours extra prior to your ceremony on top of bridal prep. If you have a day wedding this means you could be looking at a 7:30 AM start time with the photographer! Hair and makeup would be done before that time!

NON TRADITIONAL. If you wanted that traditional first look of your partner seeing you walk down the aisle.

EXPENSE. Having a first look may extend the photographers coverage time. This would all depend on the location to each aspect of your day.

SELECTING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Here are three good points to consider when selecting your wedding photographer. Remember you will spend the most time with them out of all your vendors. Really the only other person you will see that much of on your wedding day is your partner you are marrying!

ASK YOUR FRIENDS WHO THEY USED BUT ALSO DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

If you know someone who got married ask them who they used. They may give you some great insight. Do remember that every photographer has their own style so make sure your taste matches their images. Do you like dark and dramatic or light and airy? Those are things to think about before starting the search for the right photographer. You may want someone that does a bit of both. Start a list of question you can ask your potential photographer when you set up that meeting.

PRICE OUT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS YOU WANT BEFORE MAKING YOUR BUDGET.

Many people do this the opposite way. They start with a budget and try to make everything fit into it. Yes this is practical for many people and does make sense BUT it does not make sense when your photographs are the only thing that lasts past your actual wedding day. Do your research! Find a few photographers that fit the style and look you want on your day. Contact them all and get prices. This will allow you to see how much great work will actually cost vs what you want it to cost. Weddings are expensive but at the end of the day your images will be all you have left to look back on your day.

SET A TIME AND DATE TO MEET EACH OTHER

In today’s day and age you can meet anyone know matter the location. FaceTime and Skype have made this possible. Meet the photographers and get to know them. Remember you will spend a good portion of the day with them. You need to enjoy their energy and vibe. Do you like a hyper and energetic person or a laid back and go with the flow one. These are things you will be able to find out during this meeting.

I hope you find this helpful and if you have any questions just send me an email at jennifer@jennifercampos.com

Maternity Session in El Paso, TX

PRISCILLA & ANTONIO | El Paso, TEXAS


Being pregnant is such a special time in a families life. Why not have a photo session to document such an amazing experience.

Priscilla and Antonio jumped on this opportunity and knew exactly where they wanted to have it done. They are an outdoors couple and it only made sense to do the shoot with the Franklin Mountains in the backdrop.

We actually did their engagement session in the Franklin Mountains so it is wonderful to have some of those aspects in this shoot. Multiple shoots like this allows me to really understand a couple and see what side of them they may want displayed in a session.

In just a few short months they will be an amazing mom and dad to their third child. Such an exciting time in their lives and I can not wait until they welcome their little boy into this world.

How to Tie a Bow Tie

Many grooms are going with a bow tie these days. I personally think they are sharp looking, but only when tied correctly. I am finding that grooms are choosing to go with the ones that are not pre tied. The problem is most grooms and groomsmen do not know how to to tie one. It is not a typical daily article of clothing we put on each day so I totally get not knowing how to tie it.

Hopefully this diagram will help a few men out!
