Wow! It turned out even better than we imagined!

I think it reflects on just how great our relationships are with our couples. From the quality of our imagery, to how fun we are to work with on their wedding day, and the new technologies that we keep introducing to our craft.

I think that our light painting wedding photography is a great example of how seriously we take our craft. No one else in the world is creating these light painted art works at weddings and I think our couples know how cool that is.” – Michael
