Vintage style: A lot of Brides are adding a vintage look to their weddings, then looking for the sepia and old grainy look to the photographs to really get that feel.
Wedding week pics: couples are starting to request wedding week coverage, especially if they have friends and family in from out of town. We are already being asked to cover more rehearsals and rehearsal dinners and day-after sessions, so why not just extend the photo fun to a whole week?
Detailed images: More couples are asking for detailed photos of all of the centerpieces and everything that goes into the wedding day. This includes creative shots of shoes, rings and the dress.
Pre-wedding portraits: Different styles of portrait sessions done before the big day, such as a boudoir session as a gift for the fiancée, are becoming more popular.
More creativity: As couples want to get more creative with their portraits, they need more time to get the type of shots they want. More couples are scheduling a few hours before their wedding to go out and have a pre-ceremony shoot where they can be more relaxed and get some images that show them enjoying the moment.
Shoes: Huge deal these days no more white shoes… Brides are going bold bright and beautiful with the colors, we have also found that Toms are a popular shoe for the whole wedding party. Its all great for photographs.
