One of our friendors chatted with us about first looks! Black brides don’t always go for the first look because of tradition but there are a LOT of reasons why it is actually a good idea. Ashley Strickland of Ashley Nicole Photography (@ashleynicolephotosatl) talked to us about other reasons why brides don’t go for this, how it allows brides to enjoy their cocktail hour and reception, and other first look-like alternatives to consider.
