The first look moments are beautiful to capture and can be full of emotions, genuine feelings & stunning opportunities to capture. The biggest thing is to not over plan it and get too involved in it. Find a great spot for your couple (you should be in charge here as they wouldn’t know what’s good for your photography), and then let them do their thing.
Always be on the move during these moments and don’t stop shooting until they’re done. Some first looks are over in 2 seconds, others take their time. Whatever it is, keep shooting until the couple looks to you to stop.
Once you’ve got your safe shots, move in for close-ups. Look for little details, little emotions, little gestures, and try and fill your frames with these. They make awesome storytelling pieces and can be really striking by themselves.
