The biggest wedding season in 2022 is soon approaching! Candid wedding photographers are getting booked everywhere. So what are the upcoming photography trends that you’ll get to see this wedding season? Wedding photography has changed a lot over the years, so every year there is something new popping up. If you are getting married this year, keep reading on for the hottest wedding photography trends. As one of the best candid wedding photographers, here are our two cents!
Proposal Shoots– A proposal is the beginning of a marriage and now more couples are opting to get it shot. Usually, the person, who is proposing, arranges for the photographer as couples think that the wonderful moment gets over in a flash. Proposal shoots, usually surprises, are one of the biggest trends of the year!
Reportage– The fancy editorial-styled shoots are slowly fading. While the more relaxed, informal reportage trend has grown in popularity and prominence. With this style, the little details become a part of the backdrop, while the emphasis is on people, precious sentiments, and reactions. Isn’t that amazing?
Groom Love– More eminence or rather equal prominence is also given to the groom. 7-8 years back, we don’t think we shot more than a few getting ready shots of the groom. But now, grooms are getting solo photo shoots done and even photo shoots with groomsmen. Make way for the groom this year!
Dramatics– While editorial-style shoots are out, the drama is making an entry. Couples who are tying the knot are looking to capture a sense of drama from their wedding to show just how vibrant their day was. These shots usually encompass dramatic scenery in wedding attire, as well as action. Think of a destination wedding in Goa with a couple standing over a ruined shipwreck or even a high cliff.
Use Of Light– More and more candid wedding photographers are using light to their advantage to capture memories this year. Contrasting light or even simple silhouettes photography is a massive hit with couples.
Simplicity – This is our favorite one on the list! Many couples are focusing on getting back to basics, with a spotlight on timeless photographs that emphasize and exude simplicity, purity, and sobriety. So if you are tired of those excessive props and too much effort to click a simple image, go simple. You just can’t get it wrong with simplicity.
