Hi, I'm mattie.


As a wedding photographer, you know that some of the most memorable moments of the day happen on the dance floor. To ensure you capture those fun and lively dance floor images that every couple cherishes, here are a few creative ideas to consider:

1. Gather Your College Crew:

One fantastic way to kick off the dance floor festivities is by gathering all your college friends for a group picture. College friends often have a special bond and bringing them together for a photo early on sets a lively tone for the dancing ahead. As soon as the picture is done, start the music!

2. Create a Glow Stick Tunnel:

For a visually striking and energetic shot, consider creating a glow stick tunnel. Have guests line up on either side, holding glow sticks or other fun props like sparklers or confetti. As the newlyweds make their way through this tunnel, the vibrant colors and animated expressions of the guests create a dynamic and festive atmosphere. This setup not only adds a pop of color to your photos but also enhances the excitement for others to go through the line next.

3. Encourage Spontaneous Dance-offs:

Spontaneity often leads to the most candid and joyful moments. Encourage guests to participate in friendly dance-offs or challenges. These impromptu dance battles not only bring out everyone’s playful side but also provide you with ample opportunities to capture genuine laughter and spirited dance moves. Candid shots from these moments can truly capture the essence of the celebration.

4. Capture Moments of Elegance and Exuberance:

While the fun and lively shots are a must, don’t forget to capture moments of elegance and intimacy on the dance floor as well. The way the bride and groom gaze into each other’s eyes during a slow dance or the graceful movements of friends and family members sharing a heartfelt moment – these images add depth and emotion to your wedding album.

5. Be Ready for the Unexpected:

Lastly, as a wedding photographer, always be prepared to capture the unexpected moments. Whether it’s a spontaneous group dance, a surprise performance, or a heartfelt gesture, these unplanned occurrences often make for the most memorable and cherished photographs.
