Stylish wedding photography: Give your shots a fashionable spin.
Brides, you’ve spent the past few months planning your glamourous look on your wedding day. Why not take advantage of some stylish wedding photography techniques to capitalize on your effort?
Stylish wedding photography, one of the latest wedding photography trends, can make you and your new spouse look like you just stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine. The shots are dramatic, ethereal and/or romantic, depending on how the shot is set up.
So what makes a shot look high-fashion? Just a few ways are through scenery, the details in the fashion and the editing process.
The scenery in a stylish wedding photography shoot is out of the ordinary. It’s unexpected. You won’t find any stylish wedding photography happening in a group photo in front of an altar of a church. Instead, the photography will lead the bride and groom to out-of-the ordinary places to create a magical look. What type of places those might be is only limited to where you’re able to travel for photos. For most couples who don’t want to spend their wedding day taking a tour of the city, the photography will be done at their reception venue. So daydream a little: Where can your photo shoot take place?
If you’re getting married in a historic inn, ask if you can be let into one of the ornate bedrooms for some photography. Here, you can get a gorgeous set-up of the bride applying red lipstick in mirror of the glamourous bathroom. Incorporate both the bride and groom with a pose on the bed, utilizing the bride’s stylish wedding gown perhaps as a blanket for them both.
The details in the fashion, though, is what makes it truly stylish wedding photography. Bright red lipstick, a pop of color on the bride’s bright pink shoes or the intricate details of an engagement ring or lace wedding gown – in the end, a fashion shoot is really all about what they’re wearing. A bride wearing an outdated wedding gown is probably not a likely candidate for a fine-art, stylish wedding photography shoot (unless it’s so outdated that it’s vintage, in which case, it’s fair game for a stylized shoot).
Finally, the editing process can really make a difference. With Photoshop and other photography editing programs, there are so many ways to make a photo look like fine art. One of the easiest tricks is converting to sepia or black and white – it makes the photo much more dramatic and emotional.
