Usually when we do a post from a reception, I like the shots form the dance floor. I like the color and I like the moments. There’s nothing better than grabbing an unexpected moment. It could be a quick kiss or a great laugh. There’s emotion and it’s almost always spontaneous.
As a general rule, the best photos don’t come from the introduction of the parents or the bride and groom. They’re usually nice photos but not always the best shots. But in the case of Jen and Joe, I love the emotion! It was so genuine and contagious and it spread through all of the guests. It was a party right from the get-go. It was family and friends and it was a celebration. The whole night had that great vibe that you don’t get at every wedding. I think these “intro” shots capture the mood pretty well.
