For the first dance at this wedding, the dance floor was lit with some strange natural light which afforded me little opportunity to create the image that I had expected to capture. However, 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. In fact you'll see how closely I was following their movement because the bridegroom are in focus while there is motion blur on all of the guests in the background. That shows that I was panning to follow the couple as they danced. These photographs feature Villa Del Leon, a private estate near Malibu, California (in Pacific Palisades).
