Playful Dance-Floor Pictures to Inspire Your Photographer

Discover fun action shots from real wedding receptions you should consider asking for.

After all of the coordinating, the touring, the plethora of decisions, and the excited nerves, you’ve said your “I dos” and walked back up the aisle – now, it’s time to celebrate! Your wedding reception is a fun and happy time dedicated to thanking your guests for witnessing your vow exchange, as well as being able to unwind with your nearest and dearest while you bask in the warm glow of matrimony. Some couples choose to host more low-key, relaxed events to match their style, while others opt to throw lively bashes with strong party atmospheres. 

For those who seek the latter fête, you’re bound to have some great times with family, friends, and your new spouse on the dance floor: whether it be during more traditional practices, such as the father-daughter dance, or the wilder side of the party, such as being tossed in the air by your wedding party. No matter the moment, you’ll want your photographer and videographer to capture certain instances that will remain a constant in your memory albums to come. We’ve put together a list of 9 precious and playful photos from real weddings to inspire your reception shot list – make sure your photographer knows what’s in store for the soirée.
