Engaged couples and wedding planners, listen up! We don't mean to brag but your search for the latest wedding photography trends has ended. We've gone beyond the usual trending hashtags to find five trends that are certain to come up in conversations amongst the in-crowd by years-end.
1. Editorial Style Portraits
Editorial style portraits are the hottest new trend in wedding photography. For a long time, weddings were more about the big picture than they were about individual shots of the newlyweds. But nowadays, couples are looking for more intimate and fashion-focused photos that show off their personalities. That's why editorial wedding portraits are all the rage! These unique images use elements like vintage cars and fun props to create beautiful scenes that capture the couple's personal style. They also feature individual shots of the wedding couple so that their personalities come through in each photo.
2. Cinematic Storytelling
While cinematic storytelling has been a trend for some time now, it's not going anywhere soon. Cinematic storytelling is about telling a love story through your images—and it's the perfect way to showcase your relationship in an artistic way. Keep in mind that cinematic storytelling doesn't have to be literal; instead, think about how you can tell a story with your photos that go beyond just documenting the big day.
"A camera alone does not make a picture. To make a picture, you need a camera, a photographer and above all a subject. It is the subject that determines the interest of the photograph." ― Man Ray
3. Outdoor Photography and Natural Settings
Weddings in the great outdoors have been popular for years, but they're taking centre stage this season as couples opt for outdoor ceremonies at venues like beaches, parks, gardens and even vineyards. Natural settings offer a gorgeous backdrop and an awesome way to showcase your love story with gorgeous scenery. They also make it easy for you to create a cohesive look throughout your wedding photos by using the same background in multiple shots.
4. The Hollywood Party
Couples will continue to search for soft lighting during the day, but at night, Hollywood-style parties will take over. A more outgoing and fun approach to photography will be encouraged, whether it's a studio backdrop or the dance floor. To emphasise the magical ambience of celebrations, flash photography will become more popular. Flash photography will be used more frequently than ever before because it's the best way to create dramatic images and make them stand out on social media. The use of artificial light means you can create different effects and make your photos look more artistic.
5. Overhead Photography
A new trend in weddings is overhead photography. Drones can help take photos and videos that will mesmerize you for years, especially if your venue is located along the magnificent UK Coast. If you are getting married on a beach or by the sea, then this could be an excellent option for you. The drone can capture some amazing aerial shots of your big day. This would also be great for the couple who want to add a bit of glamour to their wedding. With today’s technology, it is possible to make your wedding look like something out of a movie!
