I've seen light painting used lots but never done it and hadn't ever thought of doing it at a wedding. After watching a video on Kelby Training where David Ziser used it I thought why not give it a bash. The couple were game for a play and were really amazed at the result (they hadn't ever seen light painting so were just excited by the whole thing LOL).

I know it's not perfect but it was a bit of fun.

A wedding photographer who knows he is not as good as he could be so always looking to improve. Happy to take any and all constructive advice and critique!

Okay, I've done this before and will give you me two cents!

1. Camera on Tripod
2. Have B&G kissing
3. Have the four helpers do their thang
5. Use off camera flash to illuminate B&G after a few seconds of the 4 helpers 'writing'.
6. Color balance in post

I've even done it where I had the helpers leave the shot then I popped the flash.

That's what I did ;)

Great idea! My main critique would be - in this instance anyway - since the members of the wedding party were in the frame as the flash popped, I might have moved the b&g closer to the camera to help them stand out a bit more.

Otherwise, great execution!
