An empty dance floor is a boring dance floor, just gonna say it like that. If you’re a wedding photographer, a full dance floor is where the action is at. If a dance floor is full, I usually stick around the reception a little bit longer, because this is when I take some of the best candid shots at a wedding. People tend to forget about me and the camera once they are out there shaking their stuff. So that is when I take the best snappy snaps.

That being said, to get people out on that dance floor, you need the right combination of tunes. Based on my last five years of research and observation, here is the first list in a series of top 10 songs to get people on the dance.

Welcome to the 1980’s, with photos from the 2010’s…

Hi, I’m Janelle a photographer hailing from Edmonton Alberta. I’m all about connection and celebration. Seriously, it’s my focus from our first client meeting till the chicken dance starts. I make an effort to get to know your closest friends and family on your wedding day. Why? First, they’re probably cool people, and second, when they know me as “Janelle” the gal who plays Dungeons and Dragons and has a pet Duck, they’re going to let me into their world. My favourite moment of every wedding is right after the ceremony. This is when your friends and family smother or possibly crush you with either love or cheerful embrace. Bring on all the candid moments.

  I value connection and celebration of moments over a big production.
