A lot can happen during the reception, especially on the dance floor! That’s why we advise having us stick around after the traditional stuff (aka speeches, cake cutting, etc) is finished. But how much open dancing coverage do you really need? Probably a lot less than you might think, when you hire the right photographer. By having us there for 20 minutes of open dancing, it will result in photos that make it look like we were there all night :)
The key to getting a lot of great dance photos, in a short period of time, is to get everyone on their feet right away. To accomplish this, ask the DJ to request that everyone hit the dance floor for a song or two. Maybe start with a big group photo, then immediately after the picture, ensure that the DJ puts on the perfect crowd pleaser song. Get that dance floor packed, and in 20 minutes, we will get the spirit of the room covered!
To illustrate our point, here are examples of photographs captured within the first 20 minutes of dance coverage:
