WOW Wedding Contest

Atlanta Wedding Photographer | LeahAndMark.com | WOW Wedding Contest | 11Alive

Hello. We are LeahAndMark.com

These last few years have passed at light speed and we’re very grateful to everyone who’s helped us grow our Photography Business. We photograph a lot of weddings all over the country. From Maine, to California, to Michigan, to Florida, back to California and then all over the East coast – our clients take a chance on us – and we do our best to deliver the best.

We know how precious life is; we know how precious love is – and we know that there are many people out there who are unable to have a wedding for many varied reasons. Now although we can’t possibly help everyone – we can help someone – and a few months ago we decided that we would give two people in love a Full Wedding.

Not only that – we made this wedding contest open to everyone.

Straight. Gay. Awesome. Whatever. Let’s do this.

Yes – we know we’re in Georgia and we know the laws about marriage, but we’re doing this anyway. (Heck – only about a month ago could we FINALLY buy alcohol on Sunday in this state.)

(Psssst – we’re looking for Photography Interns to work with us on Weddings, Events, Family Portrait Sessions, Model Shoots – basically everything and anything we do – CLICK HERE to find out how to apply.)

(oh yeah – one more thing – we’re still offering our 25% Scoutmob discount off of Wedding Packages & Portrait Sessions!)

Last night we photographed the Scoutmob + HowStuffWorks.com Trivia party at Five Seasons Brewery! For this event, Leah came out to shoot and we brought along Intern Deborah. We were lucky enough to have an awesome, awesome sunset – and just really good light to work with for a few hours – and then it turned dark and we brought out our big light bulbs.

(Check out the wide angle – Click on the Photo to see it larger.)

Okay – they’re not really light bulbs – but that’s kind of what I call them since the basic idea is to turn a regular hotshoe speedlight, into a big overhead lightbulb that illuminates the outdoor space. Because we were on the patio and as great as it is to have mood lighting in general while you’re partying – that sucks for taking photos. So a long time ago we devised a way to use off-camera flash, without shooting it right into people’s eyes.

Last time we used it was at a wedding reception in a small restaurant – but this is what the setup looks like:

Basically – it’s IKEA cabinet liner + velcro. Soft, indirect lighting. Yeah. We’re so hardcore 😉

But if you know us – we really dislike on-camera flash – so unless we can bounce light off of a ceiling or wall – y0u won’t see us using big white tupperware diffusers like most event photographers. In fact… I think we’re the only ones out there that are crazy enough to use this setup instead of just shooting with a flash on our hotshoes – but hey, there’s no way you could ever get a crowd shot like this with the flash sitting on your camera.

Still. This event was a lot of fun to shoot – and we even played around with the VIPs while we were shooting them – such as asking them for more robot!

Or to just come at my lens!
