Wedding Sparklers {Waco Wedding Photography}

I just love sparklers — especially at the end of a wedding! It’s such a bright and festive way to send the newlyweds off! I’ve always wanted to do a shot with sparklers with the bride and groom at a wedding, but for one reason or another, it just never happened… until now. At my first meeting with Justin and Ashlee I talked about doing a shot with sparklers (I was determined to get the shot this wedding!). Everyone was completely on-board with the idea and knew I could bring a simple idea to fruition … and here is the result: Wouldn’t you want me to shoot your wedding? (By the way, this shot is straight-out-of-camera with no photoshop work. I even showed Justin and Ashlee the image right after I took it)

For those who are curious as to how I achieved this shot … my lovely and talented assistant ran around the couple with a sparkler as the bride and groom stood still.

Hi Kristie! Thanks for the compliment :) To answer your question, it all has to with the shutter speed. If the shutter speed is slow enough, only stationary or bright objects will appear or “burn” onto the image. The time length of the sparkler is irrelevant, as long as it sparkles–any time length would work; it’s all about the shutter speed chosen in the camera. Hope this helps :) Thanks again for stopping by :)

I’m curious. Lol I know you had a person to run around the bride and groom but how did you get them assistant out of the pic in time and how did the actual sparkler light stay lit that long for the photo? Lolol this is a very interesting photo
