First look photos have become a modern staple for many couples. These photos usually show the groom seeing the bride for the first time in private (with your photographer, of course). But, this doesn’t mean the groom has to simply close his eyes, while the bride walks towards him. There are some fun ways to get a super cute photo that also incorporates your personal style.
1. Holding hands
This is a traditional pose that also makes for a super sweet photo. You can hold hands around a door, corner, or even a tree!

2. She walks up from behind
Another fantastic photo can be a simpler choice where the groom turns around and the bride walks up behind him. This way, you can see both of your beautiful faces in the photo.
3. Hugs from Behind
You can always make sure your photographer gets the perfect shot of you hugging your groom when you walk up from behind him. This is a more intimate option for couples who don’t just want to do the simple shoulder tap.
4. Bridesmaids Surprise
If you want to surprise your groom when you’re walking down the aisle, but still want to capture that feeling of excitement before your ceremony, try a first look with your bridesmaids. Make sure you can see all of your maids in one photo to get the full range of super sweet shocked faces.
