Many brides-to-be have grown up dreaming about their fathers giving them away on their wedding day – it’s an age-old traditional that has become one of the most memorable, sentimental moments of the wedding day.
The moment when a dad sees his daughter in her wedding gown for the first time is a monumental one, so these days, whether or not they plan on having a first look with their soon-to-be husband, brides often include a special first look with their dad. This way, the photographer can capture the moment on camera so that the emotion can be treasured for years to come. Many of our favorite photos from our real wedding submissions are of the father daughter first look — the dad’s reaction to seeing his daughter right before the ceremony is priceless! We simply love this series from Cyn Kain Photography.
Some brides also choose to do a first look with their mother, or even their grandparents. This trend is a fantastic way to share a few moments focusing on just you and your family members before walking down the aisle!
