With the evolution of how photographs are developed, the invention of digital cameras, and the influence on radical cinematic techniques on the static art form, photography has witnessed a monumental change. Wedding photography too, is now radically different than what it used to be.
After all, technology gives us the opportunity to enhance static images and there are so many devices available to help lovebirds capture every second of their special day. So why wouldn’t people make use of what is now available to them because of new developments in the field?
But it’s also important to remember that technology isn’t the only highlight of the past 50 years. It was in the last decade of the 20th century that the world truly became a global village. With the intermingling of people from different cultures and countries, wedding rituals and practices that seemed interesting also changed hands! These also had an effect on the themes that wedding photographs usually have nowadays.
Before we move on, remember that wedding photography in Brisbane, Australia was hardly anything like what we see today. Continuous coverage of every event was not a thing and most couples would generally focus on getting no more than 5-10 pictures. But now, let’s see what’s different:
While candid photography has actually been around since 1890, we noted a proliferation of it in the wedding photography world only after 2010. There is no doubt that looking back at a candid after your wedding will make you smile because there is nothing artificial or ‘posey’ about it. It will show you that you were in the moment, having fun with the love of your life! Moreover, if the wedding photographer that you have chosen is actually good, then you’ll also have some good shots of the guests having a wild time!
If you scan wedding photographs randomly, you will also notice that the poses in group pictures have changed over the years. Now, we don’t have the stiff, formal poses or the done-to-death themes anymore. People are open to experimenting with fun poses and themes and photographers in Brisbane are more than happy to help them out!
Although these are extremely popular in South Asian countries, the West caught on to this raging trend quite late. This gives the couple the chance to tell their love story to their guests through pictures just before the wedding. Usually done 3-4 months before the wedding, it helps the couple to get more comfortable and closer to each other. A sure-fire way to test your chemistry!
Like we mentioned earlier, technology has completely changed the wedding photography game. Drones are now used at opulent weddings for grabs of the entire venue and also to add a bit of drama to the photo grabs. There is also no doubt that that over-the-head aerial shots offer a very grand and different perspective of the event.
