Since 1900 when the first Box Brownie camera popularised snap shot photography, technology has continued to develop apace. From drone technology to photo and video booths, you may be surprised by these recent trends in the wedding photography industry:
Using drone technology to take aerial photographs and videos during your wedding day can have stunning results, but there are a few things to keep in mind.
- Drones are noisy and can be disruptive during the ceremony
- It can take time for a drone to get a good shot
- If it’s a windy day then the drone won’t be able to take off
Having said that, the use of drones is in innovative and unique way to capture images that you can’t achieve with traditional photography methods. Imagine a bird’s eye view of your special day!
Wedding videography basically refers to a video of your wedding, but you don’t need to ask Uncle Phil to run after you with his video-cam making cheesy comments. Pay a professional to make a film of your big day as it unfolds. Story-telling videography is a charming style to use for a wedding. Usually it involves filming the couple before the wedding, telling the story of how they met and fell in love, culminating in footage of the wedding day itself.
Photo and video booths
Photo booths have become very popular at weddings largely because they are such fun! Guests instantly get a photo-strip of themselves and the bride and groom will have a copy to add to their more formal photographs.
Video booths are taking off as well, with some companies providing booths that will take either a photo or a short video. Wedding guests can step into the booth and film a personal message for the bride and groom.
Whichever style or trend you choose for your wedding photography, the important thing is to have a beautiful and personal record of your special day. Knowing whom to trust for your wedding photography is hard. At Waterfront Function Centre we have built trusted relationships with several local businesses and have no hesitation in recommending any of these photography and videography suppliers to you.
