Motion and Naturally Looking Wedding Photos

Bye-bye, sepia-looking photos, non-conventional angles and perfectly prepared poses. Say hello to ‘bright and airy’ photographs, a lot of natural light and capturing some candid, genuine moments. It’s all about the personal touches to bring the whole experience closer to the couple’s values.

Recently we observe a new trend emerging on TikTok and Instagram. A lot of creators go for retro-looking, blurry photos and wedding photography is also a part of this trend. I a lot of couples look for photographers skilled in dramatic candid shots this year.

Micro wedding parties

Even though the pandemic is officially over the small wedding trends are about to stay with us for longer. Many couples want to avoid potential problems related to planning, big expenses and all the hustle of a big wedding. They are less concerned about doing their wedding ‘just for show’ and prefer to spend this time with those who really matter.

In a few years, more and more couples try to host their wedding responsibly and incorporate sustainable practices during the reception. This means using local products and cutting back on unnecessary waste. Also in 2023, we will see a surge of sustainable, raw, and natural wedding decorations, farm tables, or biodegradable materials. Wedding venues are becoming more green, full of flower decors, and plastic-free.
