Reception lighting greatly varies by location. Most of our couples opt for an outdoor reception under twinkling market lights. We do out best to embrace the mood and grit and very rarely use flash outside of dance party photos. If you are lighting your reception with market lights and candles, GO NUTS! The more the better as far as photos go.
When our couples eat, we eat. No one enjoys being photographed while they are stuffing their faces, so we take this opportunity to get some food in our bellies and take a few minutes off of our feet before the dance party begins.
Friendly Reminder: feed us what you and your guests eat. Vendor meals generally consist of a PBJ or, at best, spaghetti. This is our only meal during our 8-10 hours of us being hard at work, documenting you and your wedding. Best case scenario, you have seats at a table with guests for us, both so that the catering staff doesn’t give you a hard time about feeding us an actual meal and so that we’re not instructed to sit somewhere where we could miss key moments. If you have questions about this, hit us up.
