First Dance with No Effect

The event almost goes without saying as far as its importance to a wedding reception. The wedding dance although sometimes varies in which it takes place during a wedding reception. Sometimes it occurs right after the newlyweds' grand entrance which is probably the most common. Another alternative would be to have the couple have their first dance right after dinner as a way to starting up the reception festivities after a completing a great feast. The first dance can also occur after the last speech or toast that has been made just before dinner is served. But no matter its place in a wedding reception, this typically is one of the highlights of the day and of course in a wedding video. As a result, we offer an effect that also helps enhance this scene and moment in a video.

The First Dance Without Any Effect

In this clip, it demonstrates how a wedding video would look like with no effect added to the first dance. This video was shot with two cameras which helps keep the scene a bit more interesting. As important and as intimate as this moment may be between the couple, for other people they may get a little impatient while viewing this scene in your wedding video. The reason why is it isn't them sharing the moment, but it is instead them on the outside looking in watching the couple have their moment. Not to mention, because of the scene's intimacy, we try to take a step back in which we do not capture any of the dialogue that goes between the newlyweds during this moment. Instead, such dialogue is inaudible by the ballad playing during the first dance. Therefore, to be realistic, no matter how much your friends and family love you, they unfortunately may ask to fast forward ahead in the video to the next scene. This is why we offer a First Dance With Romantic Shot Effect in your wedding video.
