What to do if you don’t want a first look

If you want to go the more traditional route and don’t want a first look that’s totally ok! But, you have to think about the time needed after your ceremony for family photos. Here are the minimum times you will need to schedule out for photos after the ceremony.

  • For family formals, you will need 30 to 45 minutes depending on your family size.
  • You will need a half hour for bride and groom portraits and 30 to 45 minutes for your bridal party pictures, depending on the number of people in your party.
  • If you are taking photos off location, you will have to gather everything together and transport it. It is a good idea to designate a friend or someone who is not going to be in photos to do this for you to save time.
  • Keep in mind that it is super hard to keep family, friends, and bridal party members together and all in one place after the ceremony, especially if it is a large party. For that reason, you need to allot some extra bubble time in case someone goes missing.

These are the minimum times. If you have more people in your family and bridal party photos, you may want to add some more time if you don’t want a first look.
