It is quite common that anyone who hires professional photography services for a big event like a wedding wants that one ‘perfect’ Instagram and Facebook worthy picture that can embody countless beautiful moments at a single glance only. What if you could have numerous pictures to reminisce and use over the years for marriage anniversaries, throwbacks, birthdays, etc.!
For that ‘perfect’ shoot, you will have to look into a ‘popular culture’ for inspiration. Premium wedding photography ideas and trends keep changing and evolving every year. These trends could be either completely novel or a mix of vintage and modern ones. If you are planning to get married this year, look at the following trends for 2020:
If you and your partner are diehard fans of Netflix series, movies, etc., it can be an amazing idea to have a theme-based wedding photoshoot. For instance, you can try Game of Thrones theme-based wedding. However, if you are not a GoT fan, then you could try something else i.e. 80s inspired theme. Everything from your outfits to decoration and props to food, you can hire someone who can customize to add that ‘pizzazz’. Apart from this, your theme-based wedding shoot can also be centered on a specific hue or an ideology too.
An exciting trend that has truly lasted for quite a while is the use of some different props. Previously, wedding photographers were using those tedious cardboard props with quirky phrases and one-liners such as ‘Just Married’, ‘Miss to Mrs.’, etc. But, now there has been a massive shift to a more subtle use of these props. Today, props involve different kinds of lights i.e. fairy lights, sparklers, paper lanterns, candles, you name it. These can provide your wedding photographs with that ‘extra bit of magic’. If you need colors, then smoke bombs can be used to create joyful and vivid images to contrast with monochrome outfits. Other options of trendy props are confetti, flower petals, soap bubbles, and glitter.
A good photographer like us knows the real value of having black and white pictures in your wedding album. It is also believed that monochrome photos are the best way to evaluate the skills of a wedding photographer as they are like the reflection of their ability and artistic eye. When different colors are filtered, you can see if they have the eyes for capturing the right emotions in their pictures. Apart from this, other filters can also be used to make phonographs look better. For example, the sepia filter is one of the best ways to get the vintage feel and a film filter, on the other hand, can be used to add a grand and larger-than-life effect. It is a top wedding photography idea you can try for your special day.
Rather than posing for pictures, try to act naturally to get some uncontrived photographs. Make sure you discuss with your photographer to capture some candid moments as well. For instance, pictures of you and your beau laughing, crying at the time of vidaayi, hugging your family and friends, etc. are some of the moments where your photographer can capture the emotional journey. You can relive all these moments after months, years, and even decades down the line. Additionally, such candid shots can serve as memorabilia for your children and grandchildren one day. Simply put, by capturing candid moments, your wedding photographer can help you immortalize the most beautiful day of your life. Believe us, emotion-filled candid pictures are a trend to follow.
Another amazing or popular trend for taking fun pictures is featuring the most important people. Being at the wedding in a heavy dress or a tuxedo does not always mean a wedding cannot be interesting. Rather than traditional photographs in boring poses, you can picture yourselves enjoying with your ‘gang of girls’ or ‘band of boys’. You can also recreate old pictures to collect memories for a lifetime. It is another premium wedding photography trend.
All your wedding photographs do not have to be at the venue only! There are so many beautiful places in India like Jaipur, Goa, Manali, Shimla, etc. that can serve as a background for the photoshoot of your wedding. Depending on the type of vibe you want, you can explore the options available. For instance, if you want more magical vibes, you can choose an outdoor location like a garden, nearby a lake, perhaps.
These are just a few trends you must look out for in 2020. However, to convert these ideas into reality, you will need a wedding photographer who is professional, can understanding your vision, and execute the ideas to perfection.
