I came across these wedding dance pictures today by Me Ra Koh Photography and it struck me what a fantastic idea it is for a couple planning a special first dance. The couple had a wonderful routine worked out for the evening reception, but during a private photo shoot earlier in the day after the ceremony the couple decided to practice their dance. This not only helped a lot for the performance in front of the croud that night and also allowed the couple to rehearse in their clothes, it provided an awesome intimate photo opportunity! The shots are posed in the context of the routine but utterly natural as they are moves the couple are used to practicing together. They really are to me the shots of the day!
This is not just limited to couples lucky enough to have a beach wedding however. Why not invite the photographer to the hotel room maybe at the end of the formal photo shot, or any private space you may have a chance to try some moves out in.
A terrific idea and the shots of the actual first dance show how successful the rehearsal was!
