They’ll act as a lasting memory for your big day, so it’s fair to say your wedding photographs are pretty important! These photography trends will give your photo album a little extra wow factor.

Smoke bombs
While we still love sparkler shots, smoke bombs are the latest must-have props for creative couples. Keep it classic with white smoke or have fun with pink or red – the effects are seriously show-stopping.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

#weddingoftheyear
Social media is everywhere, so it’s no surprise it’s often now a part of weddings. Many couples now set up their own wedding hashtag so they can easily find and curate all the casual guest shots from their big day.

No filter
Remember two years ago when we were all obsessed with putting the Amaro filer over Every. Single. Photo. Now though? Not so much. Our fondness for a more pared back image on Instagram has seeped into wedding photography, with more couples opting for the natural look.

THE BIGGEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY MISTAKES

Gifs
We can’t get enough of these cute, two-second loops. We love GIF photo booths too – all your guest can get sharing their best wedding moments immediately. Try one on your wedding day for a new way to capture the fun! 

Film photography comeback
This soft-focus photography style adds a beautifully light and airy look to your shots for a timeless feel. You’ll need a highly skilled photographer though as they won’t be able to review their work on the day. Eeek!

WHAT'S YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?

Drones
Want photos on another level (literally)? Get some stunning shots of your venue and wedding party from the air with a drone! There are a limited amount of photographers in the UK offering this as an add-on service, and the dramatic results are well worth the extra spend.
