First Dance

The dance floor was lit with strange natural light which afforded me little opportunity to create the image that I anticipated.

The couple moved quickly across the dance floor and a series of choreographed moves until finally they finished their dance with this active dip.

As a wedding photographer, it's very difficult to capture a dip during a dance because there are only certain angles in which the dip would look good through the lens. In that I was lucky at this event.

Also, the bride and groom are moving very quickly and I only had a split-second to snapped this photograph. You'll see how closely I was following their movement because the couple is in focus while there is motion blur on all of the guests in the background.

That shows that I was panning and following the couple as they danced.
