Normally, I feel like the money dance tradition makes for some pretty lousy images. Guests come up with little wadded up bills and they jam them into the pockets of the groom and a little pouch that the bride's got on her wrist or something. It looks fine on video but often no one has any idea what's going on in the still photographs.
Last weekend, most of the wedding guests pined a bunch of bills together into hats and leis and drapped them all over the bride and groom. Much more visually interesting. They also pinned extra bills and IOU notes all over the bride and groom.
If I'm ever involved in the planning of the wedding (not often enough), I'm going to suggest that everyone does the money dance this way.
Here's the bride losing her hat as her father tries to help out.
Lens used was the 35mm f/2.0 Summicron-M ASPH, and I've got a Joe Demb adjustable bounce card attached to my on-camera flash.
I originally cropped this tighter, but I liked the image better with a little more of the reception venue visible and the DJ's Arri 150 light spilling in from the left side. Ideally, I probably would have been a step or two to my right so I could frame the bride and her father closer to light coming in from the left.
