Paint with Light Engagement shoot

I am very excited to share this Paint with Light engagement shoot with you.  As a photographer I get to shoot a lot of weddings, babies, couples and "the normal" stuff :)    Algeatha saw some of my Paint with Light photos at a wedding expo a few years ago.  When she got engaged she visited all the wedding expos that year to "find" me and to book me for her wedding :)   She obviously also wanted to have a few Paint with Light photos.  I don't do so many Paint with Light photo shoots but when she booked me I was so excited because I had a few new things I wanted to try. 

I am looking forward to photograph Angelo and Algeatha on 1 April.  Yes, they are getting married on April fools day :)

More info about Painting with Light:
1.  The photo (with the lights) you see is the way I took it on the night.
2.   I don't edit the lights into the photo, everything is only ONE exposure.
3.  The shutter speed of each photo from this whole shoot was between 30 and 60seconds.
4.  I ran around during this time and "painted" in the lights while the shutter was open.

If you want to book a shoot like this, please contact me, OR, if you would like to learn to do this, you can book a 1 on 1 workshop session. 

The next 2 photos Angelo and Algeatha did the painting themselves.



  1. INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHY, WOW!!!! Something different than the usual stuff one see everyday. You are a true master!!!
