Up-Lighting and how it can impact your wedding photos

Up-Lighting is one of the most popular wedding reception room enhancements. If you want to add a warm glow to your reception space but candles and string lights aren't enough, you may consider uplighting. That's an effect created by putting lighting units on the floor pointed up. Magical makeover!

WHAT IS UP-LIGHTING?

Uplighting is a popular lighting effect used for special events. The effect is created by placing small lights on the floor and aiming them up. This creates a vertical beam of light -- hence the name "up lighting." Uplights are commonly used on walls, backdrops, pillars, tents, and trees. Uplighting is an effective way to change the look of a room and add ambiance for an event.

WHY WOULD UP-LIGHTING BE IMPORTANT FOR MY WEDDING PHOTOS?

Uplighting has a very dramatic effect on the backdrop of those important and memorable moments captured by your wedding photographer. Those photos will be with you for the rest of your life and beyond. When uplighting is properly placed within the venue space, it helps to enhance the photos as shown in examples below. The biggest and most important aspect of how up-lighting can enhance your wedding photos is the use of color & lighting balance. You and your guests are the primary subject and the background frames the subject. With uplighting, the background becomes part of the beauty of the picture.

From these two example photos above, you can see the difference. Both are great photos but the example photo with uplighting frames much better and will really enhance that important wedding 1st dance photo.

WIRELESS UPLIGHTS vs. WIRED UPLIGHTS

We provide wireless lights. This means no wires! Each light has a battery so there is no need to plug into any wall outlets. This allows us to freely place on walls and architectural points of interest within the venue space without limitations. All of our uplights are also remotely custom color set to match your color style & taste. Another benefit of our wireless uplights is a much faster set up. This is important because your venue may not always allow for more than an hour for set up & tear down without charing you extra for the time. Having the ability to place uplights and set the color in minutes means you don't have to pay extra for more set up time or tear down time!

DECORATIVE UPLIGHTING IS EXPENSIVE, RIGHT?

Well, no. With advancements in lighting technology, the cost for decorative uplighting is more affordable than ever! With combined DJ entertainment packages, in most cases, uplighting can be included with discounts. You don't need a lot of lights to enhance the look of a room either. A few lights can make a huge difference! We generally provide up to 10 LED lights that are also fully battery powered (no wires, no mess!) and can be custom color matched to your wedding theme colors.
