Paul C. Buff Inc. & DeVende Photography
Well, we shot a wedding this weekend in Las Vegas which was absolutely fabulous. We got some excellent Bride & Groom portraits of Kevin & Cortney Hughes and everything went great........until a gust of wind came by and blew over our studio flash units which broke of course. One was an AlienBee B1600 studio strobe which is my favorite, which cracked in the back next to the AC plug......tear. I called Paul C. Buff Inc. and was wondering how much it was going to cost to repair one of DeVende Photography,s favorite lights. To my surprise they stated they will repair it for free just send it in. To all you fellow Photographers out there, not only are these flash heads great products and superb light but they have excellent customer service. Believe the hype, this company rocks! Thank you! The photo above was done with a AB 1600 with large softbox (just before the wind blew it over) , and an SB900 speedlight behind the bride to simulate the sun and create a solar flare triggered by Pocket Wizard TT5's.
