As a Atlanta wedding photographer, one of my favorite things if light painting and photograph at night. The results are always very dramatic. I like it when there are sparklers at the exit also when we get a wedding venue that has exterior lights to show the building off. Recently I had the honor of photographing a wonderful wedding in Atlanta. The venue was gorgeous and the wedding went into the night.
Let me set up this shot "LOVE" photo and how it was done. While I had my assistant inside shooting the dancing I saw group of people getting ready to leave. I asked them if they could help with a shot real quick and they said "sure". We went outside where I already had the sparklers and tripod set up. I explained to then that they were going to spell out "LOVE". I assigned each one a letter to make and told them they had to do it backwards as if they were looking in the mirror. I lit the sparklers and let them at it. I had a set up my camera for long exposure of 10 seconds and deep depth of field. We had enough time to take 4 exposures and the sparklers burned out. The group were great and so generous with their time. I showed them the picture and they "LOVED IT". The bride and groom were inside and did not what was going on. So at the end when I gave them the photo they were pleasantly surprised! It really is a simple photo to make but makes the couple so happy.
I hope you enjoyed the photo as much as I did making it. The wedding photographers at Atlanta Artistic Weddings would love to hear from you! Please go to the contact page and drop me a note.
