Lighting is everything when it comes to reception! Most Edmonton wedding venues have phenomenal lighting but just incase your venue does not here are our secrets to having the best wedding reception photos possible.
1. Hire an EXPERIENCED Wedding Photographer! When couples ask what is the difference between one photographer and another I suggest asking to see reception images from a full wedding day. Photographing a wedding outside with perfect lighting can be achieved quite easily. Properly lighting a dark wedding venue is where you will really see a difference.
2. Connection. As wedding photographers we capture moments. These moments are not posed or directed we just anticipate what is going to happen next. This is not something people can pretend or fake you are either totally present or you are not. In order to achieve this is it is vital that the couple is either touching or looking into each others eyes especially during the first dance and parent dances.
3. Have Fun! Most wedding receptions are based off how much the bride and groom are on the dance floor. If you are up dancing and having a great time its like a magnet for your guests and they want to be around you while your dancing. It is very difficult to capture reception candids if guests are just sitting at the table. Some of our favourite candid photos are of people dancing and enjoying themselves.
