Last wedding I shot (last weekend, crazy stories) the bride was letting me know she had hired someone to light the reception and she had them put these "totally cool looking purple lights" up behind the bridal table. Yes they look cool, but now on some of the photos the people have a purplish/reddish tint to them from those lights. Yummy!

People need to learn that different color lights is usually bad for photography. Especially venues that mix tungsten lights and those energy saver florescent lights. What a pain.

I usually enjoy the uplighting actually. I like to overpower the purple to the point of where the subject is covered in nice warm lighting, but the purple is lighting up the background. Creates some really great color contrast!

I had a couple off camera lights pointed towards the table, so most of the images came out fine. There is a couple that I shot more from the side on that those really show the color tinting. As an individual image it doesn't look that great. When its viewed with the other images from the reception its not too bad.

Static color lighting on the tables is a real pain.

Color lighting on the dance floor, however, is something that I luuuuuuuuuuuuuv

I like having uplights around the room. Just have to balance my room lighting to the uplights to capture the best effect and color of the decor lighting while keeping the skin tones nice

The last wedding I shot had the purple lights for the dancing. I just let them do their thing for more moody dance shots, like the first dance, and then just overpowered them with my flashes for everything else.

a recent wedding of mine had purple lighting in the church for the ceremony, I delivered exactly like it looked in the church, it honestly did not bother me one bit because that is obviously what they wanted

+1

Same for the reception: You want purple lighting, baby? You got it.
