Wedding Photography on the Dance Floor

Wedding Photography on the Dance Floor

Getting a great party shot at a wedding reception is definitely not as easy as it seems. People are in motion, the atmosphere is chaotic, and the lighting can be a challenge to say the least. To make it work, a wedding photographer has to get in the action without interrupting any of it, and they need to have split second timing and solid technical skills. Almost all dance floor photos require the use of flash so they don’t come out blurry, so be sure to ask your photographer to see photos from a whole wedding with varying lighting conditions before you book.

Below you’ll find 15 photos from our galleries that are exceptional examples of dance floor wedding photography and one Moment Award winner from Spanish photographer Victor Lax. We think all of these photos are amazing and we are thrilled to share them with you as part of our every Tuesday series of award-worthy photography.
