Tutorial Shares Tips for Capturing the ‘First Look’ at a Wedding


Wedding photography has grown exponentially over the past decade, and with that growth has come some new trends in weddings that weren’t nearly as prevalent before. One of these is the ‘first look,’ the moment that the groom first sees the bride in her dress, and a moment that is quickly becoming a must-capture.

The above video, put together by B&H in collaboration with photographer Joe Buissink, shows just how to get the most out of this rising trend.

Buissink takes us through the steps leading up to the moment where the groom first sees his bride, sharing a few tips on how he personally drags out the moment and builds the suspense. By teasing the groom with a few tricks, Buissink grabs every ounce of emotion in the room, a technique that, as you can see from the screenshot above, makes for photographs that the couple will treasure forever.

Check out the full video at the top, and then let us know if you have anything to add to Buissink’s methods by dropping a line in the comments down below.
