Fireworks Photography by Seattle Photographer Natalie Fobes

seattle wedding fireworks display

A fifteen minute fireworks display ended this amazing Seattle wedding.

One question that came up over and over at the Seattle Wedding Show was how I did the photograph with a bride and groom in the foreground and fireworks in the background.  The shot was from an amazing Seattle wedding I photographed last summer that included a wonderful couple, a black bear, a cougar, an owl, and stickleback fish. A fifteen minute fireworks display closed the festivities.

I knew that flashing the couple during the fireworks display would interfere with their enjoyment. Instead, I set up my lights and took a shot of them  before the fireworks began. During the show I mounted my camera on a tripod, used a shutter release and kept the shutter open to capture the bursts of  fireworks. My aperture was set at f11 and my ISO was 400.

The final photograph was made up of the portrait image and seven fireworks shots that I layered in Photoshop.
