Photography has always been an important component of a wedding. Who doesnt want this day captured and cherished for many years to come? With its ever-growing popularity, couples now have a myriad of options to choose from. So, what to choose? To make it easier, we have outlined some of the most popular wedding photo styles today.
Black and white with spot color
Black and white photography has so much going for it. Its romantic, classic and elegant. It is a must-have when it comes to wedding photos. When used with spot coloring, black and white photo techniques give the images a slight makeover and add some flair. For example, a photo of you and your husband can be black and white, but your bouquet of pink roses will be shown in color. This offers a beautiful contrast against your white wedding dress and your husbands black suit.
There is a certain charm when it comes to vintage photographs. They can be artfully fuzzy, or designed with old-school looking borders and muted colors. These techniques create a timeless and captivating look.
Couples are now turning into professional models for the day. Imagine having some wedding photos that look like they came straight out the glossy pages of a magazine. Have you ever dreamt of posing like a supermodel? This is your chance. For brides wearing dramatic ball gown wedding dresses, even better.
Think of those incredible photojournalist images you see in magazines, nature magazines, newspapers and books. They are expressive, candid, and beautiful. They tell a story with one image. These photos can also be created for your wedding. With this trend, the wedding is photographed and chronicled as it goes along. The focus is on candid, rolling shots rather than posed portraits. These are photos that evoke authentic feelings and sentiments of the day.
