Light painting photography is a unique and complex photographic process that is created in the dark. It utilizes specially modified LED lights and/or powerful high-speed strobe lights to create a series of images of a stationary subject, usually on location. 
Once the subject is placed, it cannot move until all of the exposures have been made. With each exposure, Michael will light small portions of the image from different angles to bring out the details of the subject. Then, he will do the same thing, all over again, to light the rest of the whole scene as well. 
Michael will often make 200 to 300 images (sometimes more!) during the actual photography session. The whole photographic process, setting everything up, waiting for it to get dark (for outdoor projects), and the actual light painting, usually takes 3 to 4 hours.
The best of those images, usually about 100 or so, are then combined in post-production and "painted" into a single, one-of-a-kind, high-definition image. Post-production can take anywhere from 8 to 12 hours!
This unusual photographic technique highlights the subject’s details in a way that is simply not possible with any other lighting method.
The icing on the cake is when we print your finished light painted artwork on aluminum! It's done through a sublimation process. Your finished image is infused into a coated aluminum substrate. It looks absolutely amazing!
Michael is one of a very select group of photographers worldwide to employ this type of image creation in his work. He's studied this very specialized photographic technique for many years and has perfected a light painting style that's all his own.
To our knowledge, Michael & his wife Joannie, are the only wedding photographers in the world who employ this unique image creation technique to create full-scene light painted images for their wedding clients.
Michael and Joannie have even incorporated light painting into the artworks that they create during The Santa Experience every holiday season! Some of the proceeds from The Best Santa Experience go to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. We donated over $17,000 to Cystic Fibrosis in the past three years alone!
