Wedding photography is one of the most challenging and demanding of all the genres you can choose. The pace is fast, the stress level is often high and the lighting conditions can be tricky. Not only that, you're often going to be carrying a ton of equipment, but still be expected to move with speed and grace to capture every special moment, without disrupting the proceedings. Having lightweight, reliable and highly versatile lighting that can be modified to meet any situation lets a photographer focus his or her creative eye and be more "in the moment" and the subjects for more rewarding shots.
High-output, continuous LED lighting is quickly proving itself to be an ideal lighting solution for many applications and there's a new line available from Light and Motion that's a great fit for every scenario in the wedding package, from the bridal portraits to the ceremony and reception. Stella Pro Lights are extremely powerful, clean and compact lights with multiple mounting options (including hand-held) and modifiers available for almost any situation.

No matter where your clients choose to shoot the pre-wedding bridals and other portraits, Stella Pro Lights will deliver the constant light, power and correct color temperature needed to make your job easier while you concentrate on modeling features, keeping your subjects comfortable and getting those unforgettable images. Create exactly the mood you want with Stella's own options (50 degree optic and barn doors included with Pro series), the optional modifier kit, or fit them with other popular modifiers like Profoto, Elinchrom, Chimera, SpinLight 360 and more.
Family and wedding party shots will be a breeze wherever you shoot them, thanks to Stella's chip-on-board (COB) LED technology that helps render color accurately in-camera every time. During the ceremony, you'll have lightweight, but extremely powerful fill lighting that's effective indoors or out, so it's suitable for whatever location suits the happy couple. With up to 12 hours of operation on the internal battery, you can shoot untethered and be where you need to be for every shot and eliminate shadows without the distraction of a flash. For those moments that need to be captured on video, Stella delivers a 120-degree native beam, ensuring that you capture all the action without light falloff at the edges.
After the setup shots of the reception venue, cake, etc. you can move right on to everything from the first dance stills and video to the cake cutting and toasts, and then follow the merriment into the night. A little bit of weather won't deter you, either, since Stella Pro Lights are fully waterproof. You keep shooting, the party keeps rolling and the end result is a great set of images for your clients and their guests.
With all this convenience, reliability and versatility, Stella Pro Lights are becoming the got-to solution for more wedding shooters every day. If you're serious about wedding photography, these FL1 Standard-certified, rugged and versatile LED lights may be the only source you'll need for every shoot, in and out of the studio.
