Once the formality of the wedding breakfast is over the partying can begin !
It is great when we are booked to stay into the evening as it means we get to photograph people when they are more relaxed, we get to photograph the cutting of the cake, the first dance – and the arrival of the evening guests.
The evening guests are often missed by wedding photographers – which is a shame as they play an important role in your special day and spend many hours at the celebrations.
For photographers, photographing the first dance is the biggest technical challenge of the day. The DJ/Band quite rightly want the dance floor to be lit in a way that reflects the romantic mood (dark!), so we have to use every trick in the book to get good pictures in these conditions. The first dance pictures are the ones that truly separate a good photographer from a great one
It is worth considering that, if you are having a wedding album/coffee table book then you will need an appropriate final picture for the last page. A romantic shot of the first dance is often perfect for this.
