The emotion of wedding receptions can be addicting. The music, dancing, families coming together. All of it combines in this feel-good cauldron of a great time. Not surprisingly, some good photos usually come out of it as well. Whether it’s the first dance with dad, the toast or the feeling that the night is coming to a close. There are plenty of moments when the emotions are palpable and exciting to be around. And if you think it’s lost on the photographers, forget it. Whether it’s right or not, we feel as invested as the families and get caught up in the moment too. I really think it makes us better at what we do. It’s probably true of most things – the more you attach yourself and feel a connection – the more energy you’ll bring. And weddings are overflowing with energy.
Here’s some photos from the reception at the beautiful Scranton Cultural Center. We’ll have more photos from earlier in the day coming soon.
