Reception Lighting {A Single Flash Will Do} | Denver Vintage Wedding Photographer | Colorado Destination Wedding Photographer

When I first began wedding photography the dance receptions were the most intimidating part to me. Not because there is so much going on during the dancing but because it is always so dark. Romantic lighting is great for that perfect ambiance, but camera's, darkness, and non-blurry images are not best friends.

But, I am so thankful for my new  Nikon 85mm f/1.8 lens and my  not so new Nikon SB-600 flash! Oh, and this awesome book: On-Camera Flash: Techniques for Digital Wedding and Portrait Photography By: Neil van Niekerk

Between all these tools and understanding of using my surroundings I am able to capture sweet moments that take place during those dancing receptions without stressing.

It's moments like these that I'm able to captures using only my on camera flash.

Now I just love dancing, because I get to capture what I want one day to be me and my husband...along  with almost every other girl I know. ;).
