Evening reception usually is a difficult task for the wedding videographers because most of the time will be dark. In most cases, the DJ or venue provides their light setup, but we can’t rely on these lighting so we still need to place our own lights to get certain shots like dancing, head table, speeches and cutting the cake (according to the coverage you need).
Our camera sensors do handle low light very well, and in some situations, we rely on this because the guests don’t want to be blinded by video lights all night. If the lights are on we don’t want to destroy the mood by leaving them on during the entire reception so when we have the important clips we turn them off.
