So I absolutely love a good smoke grenade! Smoke grenade wedding photography is awesome! I think they give a great colour pop to your images, and they can be a lot of fun too! I always get lots of questions about smoke grenades (smoke bombs) and how they work, so hopefully this page will be helpful!
Looking to have Smoke Grenades at your wedding?
Do smoke grenades stain?
There is a risk of them staining dresses (and other fabrics) and they do get very hot. When you set off the smoke grenade, there are a few sparks which can also burn if you aren’t careful. Always pull the ring at arms length. If you are 2-3 feet away and just standing in the smoke cloud, it should not stain your clothing, although there is always a risk.
Smoke grenades will start to heat up after a while. To avoid the heat, it’s recommended to hold the bottom third of the smoke grenade. Consider the wind direction, so when placing on the ground, the smoke stays behind you.
Tell your Photographer in advance!
Where can I buy smoke grenades?
I always recommend buying the EG Enola Gaye Wire Pull Smoke Grenades because they burn cool, not hot. Plus, these smoke bombs are all non-toxic smoke with a fully biodegradable body.
The best place to buy them from is Enola Gaye. Please always buy the Enola Gaye wire pull smoke grenade WP40.
