I won't be offering dance lighting in our 2019 packages. Why? Well, I hate it. It's not about the setup, though it is an extra step. It's about the product that I can provide, and I truly believe that dance lighting is obnoxious, unnecessary. So, why:
Picture scrolling through your wedding photos, and you get to the last few photos. Generally, the last few photos you get from a photographer are "grace pictures"; only thrown in because they had them. They are never expected to be beautiful, but what if they could be? The problem I have seen with most of them is the lighting effects. Picture a photo of people having a blast in a party, but they are all blue, red, green, or colored, and they are covered in colored shapes. For a party, it's okay, but for a wedding, I don't believe in it. A wedding is pure and clean in nature and everything should cooperate with that. For a white wedding, moving shapes and bad colors should be eliminated. In my experience, I have even found that people would try to be outside of the lights when on the dance floor. So, I don't suggest dance lighting, but what would I do instead? Well:
We will be including wireless uplighting with all of our DJ packages for 2019, and will be pushing current clients towards that package. Uplighting is absolutely gorgeous, provides ambience, and ties the whole room together instead of segregating the dance floor from the tables. Uplighting provides some color to subconsciously floor your theme throughout the room, and can also save you a fair amount of money on your decor costs.
So, how do you feel about our opinion? What about our decision to move to included uplighting for 2019 packages?
