Wedding photography trends of 2021 you need to jot down now.
Candid shots are the win.
Well not entirely of course, but giving a go to a relaxed environment where people are in their zone is a new trend of wedding photography. Due to the pandemic, weddings have become intimate and informal. Which has tremendously affected the aesthetics.
Use nature to make you're candid come out better:
For example, the locations are not moved to private beaches or gardens, and even vineyards. Nature is one of the best artists. These locations are a highlight of their own. The real-time focus and emotions are the NEED OF THE HOUR! People like to see authenticity and things they can relate to. Wedding photographs have to be as real to the couple as they can be, to jog down the memory lane later. Do you feel me?
Lastly, on the day, flowers are to be taken into consideration. From garlands to bouquets, to jewelry or decoration. They are an extremely essential entity of the whole event. You can take up many poses and shots using them. Get creative and search upon it with the florists and the bridesmaid!
One of the other wedding photography trends is the much-talked-about pre-wedding shoots. It is usually done within three to six months of the wedding day to seize the beautiful journey of the couple.
How to ace pre-wedding shoots?
You should try to meet the couple before the shoot so it can make them comfortable around you. Pre shoots are the next step to make the wedding day a smoother process.
A BIG YES in the wedding photography season of this season. It is accessible and super aesthetic. The aerial view is going to add extra spice!
Document the shoot:
At the time of compiling the whole album of the couple, you can include bits and pieces of the “PROPOSAL” and the “PRE-WEDDING” shoot. These are gaining all the popularity there is to achieve.
How can you shoot a proposal?
It is not an easy job because there is only one shot to take. And so many emotions to capture. There are some points you can take into consideration:
- Familiarize yourself with the location and find a good hiding spot
- Pick a good lens and extra batteries
- Use the best source of natural light
- Make sure you take up comfortable clothing
- Pre-plan the angle
The one after the wedding.
A new addition to the wedding photography trend is the shoot after the day of the wedding. Also called a post-wedding photo shoot that can be a part of their honeymoon too. This is like putting the cherry on top of your cake.
Weddings and the following rituals are hectic. Post shoots are highly recommended to get the best out of the couple to make up for the loss that might have happened on the day.
How to make the most out of a post-wedding session?
You can use props like color bombs or a beach with fairy light set up and an intimate dinner. These act like that extra bit on the magic that your wedding photography is to create!
