But, luckily, Australia offers a plenty of breathtaking landscapes. Whether you chose Daintree rainforest or Whitehaven beach for the location, you wouldn't make a mistake. The combination of magical nature and sunlight always makes an excellent setting.
In addition to choosing nature for a photo shooting scene, there is also a possibility of underwater photography, which is a perfect choice for adventurous and sporty couples. With the right equipment, this wedding photo trend provides graceful and astonishing couple portraits. And sometimes, if you are lucky enough, you might find a fish or two photobombing in the background. As Australia has an incredible shore, your underwater photo shooting can take place at Noosa's main beach, Hyams beach, or Cable beach.
Weddings are joyful events and photos are supposed to resemble them as such. So, what can represent joy better than colours and sparkles? Thus photographers use props such as smoke bombs, holi powder, and confetti. They reflect the light nicely and look good on photos. What is more, everybody has fun playing with these props while shooting, so it's not useful only for photography, but for entertaining the guests, too.
Speaking of props and ways to wow your guests, photobooth is definitely a 'must have' at a wedding reception. As the booths have evolved, there is a wide range of amusing photobooths to rent. For example, at PhotoboothMe you can rent so-called hashtag photobooth. It's a combination of vintage and modern both by appearance and functioning. First of all, it's made of timber and it resembles old tripod cameras, so it won't ruin a vintage wedding decor. But, how does it work? It is an HD printer that prints public photos from Instagram under the previously made up hashtag particularly for your wedding. So, instead of classic posing photos, your guests can take home a memory in the type of printed Instagram post.
Another prop that made its way to the list of the hottest wedding photo trends is a drone – flying camera used for aerial photography. Drone photography offers taking photos from the angles that would never be possible to achieve from the ground. From a bird's eye view, it captures the beauty of the landscape and the decor at the same time. However, as it's a big expense, the question is: is it really worth it?
A GIF is a short animation made from a set of images by digital processing. This hot photo trend seems to be perfect for weddings shooting since it seems to capture more emotion thanks to its picture moving effect. Even though it's a short animation, it's long enough to obtain those sweet little moments such as a ceremonial kiss or first dance. As it is explained by one of the wedding photographers, "...they look more like a photograph that happens to be telling a story inside of it".
When it comes to the style of wedding photography being popular these days, the film photography is at the top of the list. It implies processing photographs in order to look like film. The popularity of this trend lies in its classic and charming impression.
