Latest Trends in Wedding Photography

Like any great event, the most important thing besides wedding dresses is the wedding photography! Whether the wedding is a beachfront fete or a black-tie affair, every couple wants their wedding photography to be picture perfect. Now, more than ever, there are countless ways to chronicle your big day in pictures. Here are some of the biggest trends in wedding photography today.

The Digital Photography Revolution
Thanks to digital cameras, the days of flashcubes and dark rooms have given way to higher quality pictures that are less expensive and faster to produce. Wedding Photographers can snap almost unlimited shots without having to reload film or intrude on the moment.

Forget having to wait agonizing months to finally see your ceremony negatives. Within weeks, photographers can post event pictures online for easy viewing. Friends and family of the bride and groom can also browse through the photos and order prints of their favorites. Not to mention digital pictures are a snap to store on a DVD or computer and can be printed over and over again.

The Heart of the Story
In recent years, a new style of wedding photography called photojournalism has become wildly popular amongst newlyweds. Instead of snapping staged shots — and those inevitable forced smiles — photojournalistic photographers focus on telling the story of your special day as it unfolds. From the pre-ceremony preparations to the last dance, they capture the events with wedding photography that elicits the unique emotions of the wedding experience. Whether it’s the bride’s heartfelt hug with her grandpa or the best man’s dance with the flower girl, this style catches the spontaneous and touching moments in an artistic and unobtrusive way.

In Vogue
Some couples are opting to have wedding photography taken in a style inspired by the pages of fashion magazines like InStyle or Vogue. This type of wedding photography plays up the glamour and romance of the day. Images of the bride and groom are shot in an artistic manner and later edited to get a high-fashion look. Move over Tom and Katie! Non-movie star couples can look like celebrities too with special photography techniques both behind the camera and in the editing room.

Options, Options, Options
The possibilities are practically endless to soon-to-wed couples today. Can’t decide between black and white photos or color? Do both. Traditional wedding photography or photojournalistic style? Try a combination of the two. Don’t want to miss the reception while you’re posing for pictures? Wedding party shots can be taken before or after the ceremony so you can enjoy it.

Have It Your Way
The one trend that never goes out of style is being true to yourself. Because you only get one chance to take pictures of your ceremony, make sure your wedding photographer has a good sense of what you have in mind. Be sure to discuss the possibilities and communicate your likes and dislikes clearly. Agreeing upon a wedding photography style before it’s time to say “I do” will help ensure your photos turn out the way you want. And most of all, don’t forget to smile and enjoy your big day!

Do you have any great suggestions of wedding photographers in Toronto?

Tis the season for giving, and I will be giving the gift of Ashy-no-more. It’s winter time; and this means that the chances of having ashy, itchy skin are now multiplied. Vaseline sent us some samples of their new Intensive Rescue line for us to try out. Due to some recent personal developments, I won’t be able to try out the line. However, if you’re a Vaseline lover and want to try out their new line (and you don’t wanna be ashy no more!). Let me know, and they’re yours!

All Good Things

I went to see this movie last weekend with Joey and Parry and it was awesome. Shocking, great acting, cool cinematography, wardrobe styling and a true story (which I love). I don’t want to give away any of the good parts but this is definitely a must-see! It’s not the kind of movie I would see again but it definitely touch upon deep emotions, mental instability and hard choices you make in a relationship and in one’s life. Have you seen it? Let me know what you think.

With holiday parties all week long, I stopped by Team Epiphany’s Ho Ho Ho party last night in the Meatpacking District at RDV.

Ridiculously good looking crowd and in true New York fashion… lots of guys and just a handful of chicks. Just the way I like it.
