Beautiful backdrops, flowing moves and elegant venues make for stunning wedding photography. Here are five fabulous first dance photos to recreate on your wedding day.
First dance photos are some of the most romantic images of your whole day as they show you together as newlyweds in embrace, surrounded by all your loved ones. Have your photographer stay on after the wedding breakfast, to capture your first dance moves to complete your wedding album in real style.
1. The Dramatic Dancefloor Shot
Stylish chandeliers, high ceilings, polished dance floors and low lighting can all add to the mood. Ask your photographer to capture the height and grandeur of your reception venue in a composition featuring the full line of your bridal gown.
2. The Embrace
One of the most timeless and romantic shots will be of your embrace on the dance floor. Make sure there is a a close up capturing your faces cheek to cheek, with arms in hold, and a longer shot featuring the swish of your gown and beauty of the surroundings.
3. The Quirky Couple Shot
For couples who like to express themselves this one is not to be missed. It really doesn’t matter if you’re performing a sultry Argentine Tango or free-styling it on the dance floor, just be yourselves, have fun, and the photographer will capture your personal style as you do.
4. The Romantic Lift
If you’re planning to perform a specially learned dance with The First Dance Company, for instance, complete with a lift, make sure your photographer knows to capture it. Such a dramatic shot could make an amazing addition to your home, once framed or on canvas.
5. The Artistic Angle
Get arty staged shots including all your guests, with a high angle or a slower shutter speed effect. An artistic look can be achieved with some amazing effects.
