One major advantage of shooting as a team is that there is always the opportunity for one of us to find a different perspective on what is happening. The first dance was extra special to the couple as the bride’s brother + sister-in-law was singing live. As we knew the first dance would be happening outside we looked for an opportunity to get a second perspective. This venue had a balcony that would allow for an overhead shot and we made sure to take advantage of that. Our only direction was to let the couple know the area we wanted them to dance. The rest was up to them!
