Mela Photography Trending


Written by Puja Agrawal

Talk about photography, and wedding is a subject that pops up instantly. Long gone are the days when straight looking pictures were clicked, today the photographers have given a new dimension to photography, wedding photography in particular.

Call it a trend, necessity or a show-off, who doesn’t want their wedding to be memorable in. Here we bring to you six hottest wedding photography trends that are very common.

  1. Back-lit bridal portraits

Brides spend a lot of time and effort in styling themselves perfectly so as their portraits could be documented properly. Using the natural light coming in from behind the subject creates dramatic images. The best time for this look is when the sun is setting or rising. This is completely called relying on Mother Nature for gorgeous photographs.

Using a lot of props and creating a photo booth on a wedding is what attracts the crowd. This trend is going high tech these days. This will also allow your guests to be engaged and help them update their pictures immediately on the social networking sites. This is what people look for in a wedding, a good place to be photographed.

  1. Casual family photos

A general problem in many weddings is that the family members are busy handling stuffs and thus end up being un-photographed. Family portraits tend to be the most attractive part of a bridal album, where all the members are standing in a row; looking in the same direction…this does not really happens in real life. A group hug or a formal shot brings out the best results.
