I have had one of those weeks where I have NEEDED to listen to music. I go through these weeks regular where I just need to listen to some of my favourite tracks. For me music often takes me back to times in my past. When I hear Matchbox Twenty ‘3am’ I’m back at university reading Lord of the rings for the first time. Or Lou Bega’s ‘Mambo Number 5’ I’m back on the beach in Mallorca in ’99.
The main two tracks in have an infinity with are from my wedding (I have to say that really!) when ever I hear ‘thank you for loving me’ by Bon jovi, I’m back in the main hall at Matfen Hall with my wife walking down the stairs and me in a blubbering state;-) The second one is ‘You’re my best friend‘ by queen which was our first dance song!
This got me thinking about some of the fun first dance photos I have been involved in. From full on arrangements to the classic couple shuffle they all mean so much to the couples which is why I try and get some unique images to take people back to their big day if they see the photo or hear their song.
Now if you are feeling a bit nervous about the big dance it may be a good idea to invite in some more couples! now i have been asked to shoot a first dance with only 10 seconds of the bride and groom alone! this was maybe a little tight but with most tracks being about 3-4 minutes …surely you can manage 1 minute of dancing on your own;-) Being totally honest as long as you tell your photographer your plans they can do wonders in a short space of time;-)
Having done lots of work with lights in the past I always try and mix things up on the dance floor to give couples some coolio options for the last page in their wedding albums!
Here are some examples of some of the things i play with. If you want to have a chat about your Newcastle upon tyne wedding photography that may involve some of these cool shots drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
