Two strobes metered at F/9 usually overpowers all lighting, even video lights.

DJ's generally respect you if asked to not use certain lights for the first dance.

Like everyone else. Mostly I overpower with flash, some I shoot available light for the effect, and some I shoot available light and just convert to B&W. I live in Baltimore, so everyone always has purple (Ravens) uplighting. Especially in the fall.

I tend to embrace them to capture ambience. Certain times I will overpower with off camera flash. One point no one has covered yet: When it comes to how the DJ light effects your metering...shoot in manual. During the reception, there is no other option for me.

If a photographer is great, mostly they blend in with the ambiance. But usually, I either do the B/W, no flash, or overpowered flash.
