Back to wedding photography for the end of Week 1 of the advent calendar. The first dance photo is often the one that ends the wedding album so I love to create a striking image that finishes the story with an artistic flourish as the newlyweds look forward to the rest of their lives together. Flash overpowers the vibrancy of the disco lights, so I prefer to use the available light to capture the intimate atmosphere. Here’s one of my favourite first dance photos of the year to illustrate the point. It was taken at the lovely Sophie and Matt’s Wethele Manor tea party themed wedding reception at the end of May.
