The season of renewal and fresh starts, many couples choose spring as the perfect time of the year to officially vow to spend their lifetimes together. Many are expected to wed this Easter and throughout spring, hence the great demand for wedding photography services. David Jones Photography has recently come out with the leading trends for contemporary wedding photography that soon-to-wed couples may want to consider to create tangible memories of their special day.
According to the new blog post of David Jones Photography, vintage is still in trend. “Vintage photography will continue to be popular among soon-to-wed couples, albeit to a lesser degree. For this year, bright and bold colours like yellow and red will figure prominently in decors, clothing and even post-production of pictures.” As a lot of people love the old world classic appeal of vintage styling, the different techniques to achieving the look through creative wedding photography will definitely be utilised by couples getting married this Easter.
Another important trend discussed in the post is the posed candid position, and while it may sound like an oxymoron, photographers claim that the attractive quality of this photo trend is it “presents a happy medium between traditional wedding photography, which emphasises set poses, and photojournalism techniques, which seek to capture the spontaneity of the moment.”
David Jones Photography likewise reveals that the use of negative space can be expected to figure prominently not only this season but throughout the year. “Unlike traditional photographs wherein the picture is composed in such a manner that the focus is on the couple, this trend allows the elements in the empty space to be a part of the picture.” For this season, the attractive wash of different bright colours in the background will prove to be an impressive aesthetic feature in wedding photographs. Similar to this is the use of colour drain and depth of colour techniques. The use of the backdrop of a clear blue sky (colour drain) or the sunset (depth of colour) never fails to add a romantic flair to photos.
For something really fun, a couple and its entourage can pretend to be A-list celebrities with movie-star style photography with the photographer acting as the paparazzo. A wedding is the perfect opportunity to receive “celebrity” treatment with everybody all dressed up and looking smashing, but the big advantage is that everything’s calculated and there’ll likely be no “real” unflattering pictures at the end of the session.
And the last trend discussed in the post is “segmented pictures” which is rising to great popularity in digital wedding photography. According to the post, it’s basically “a play on the superstition that the groom cannot see his bride before the wedding, lest they tempt the Fates and attract bad luck.” With segmented pictures, the couples are allowed to be together without seeing each other through the use of some physical barrier or through digitally composing two separate pictures into one.
So many trends, all great choices. To see a portfolio of photographs that make use of these photography techniques, visit http://www.davidjonesphotography.com/.
