The first dance of the bride and groom is obviously a big deal. The song they dance to will be their special song forever. It will be played on anniversaries and bring the two back to their wedding day. That is, because for a moment, the couple were able to express their love in a romantic way with actions rather than words in front of the people in their lives. It is their moment alone together where they can just enjoy the romance and the thrill of the union they just made without having to having to express any words of their own. They will remember the details of that moment for the rest of their lives. The bride and groom first dance is magical and it deserves to be captured in photos and optimally on film as well.
There are many perspectives to capture this moment. You can get a shot of the bride and groom first dance against the background of the crowd to show the love of everyone in attendance of their wedding. Or, you can take a photo angled above or below the couple as to get the atmosphere of wedding reception, but capture only the two. That captures the feeling of the newlyweds sharing their first dance wrapped up in the moment where they only see each other. You can also get the tender moments between the bride and groom during the first dance, such as when the groom dips his bride, when he takes her hand to begin the dance or when they take a moment to simply hug each other.
