Crystal Plaza Wedding PhotographerEvery wedding reception has its’ own vibe and every party is orchestrated differently. Some wedding receptions have cocktail seating and passed food all night instead of a sit-down dinner. Some have buffet stations and open seating. Some are formal, many-course meals. I know how long it takes to work with your floral designer and event coordinators to create the perfect space, set the perfect tone, and plan the perfect party! I always strive to create images of reception spaces that truly encapsulate what it felt like to be in that room, on that day, at that particular celebration. At this Livingston, New Jersey wedding reception at the gorgeous Crystal Plaza the entire party was set up to emulate a nightclub. In order to truly capture the setting I went into the balcony during the dancing portion of the evening and took an image with a very, very slow shutter speed. This allowed the room to be sharp but the dancing guests to blur. I love this image because it really captures the wild, crazy party vibe of this wedding reception!
