Here at Photography with Heart & Video, we have gathered the top photography trends to inspire you, so be sure to continue reading to gain some insight:


  • After the big day. Your wedding day is a busy day, and while you try and take moments for yourself, oftentimes you are bombarded with actives that will keep you far too busy. Seeing as you want to capture each and every moment of your wedding, your photographer can certainly take all of the photos that you seek to help you remember your big day, but also know that taking photos takes time. You should consider scheduling a photo shoot for the day after your wedding, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your big day and less time posing for the camera. A day-after photo shoot provides you with hours of stress-free photography time with you and your new spouse.
  • Angles overhead. All of your friends and family have gathered together to join you for your special day, surrounding you and your partner with happiness and love, so don’t you want to capture everyone in a unique way? Consider an aerial shot of everyone, or more formally known as an overhead shot, to provide a unique and intricate angle. When choosing this style for a photo, you can enhance each and every person, as well as the gorgeous setting, so it makes for a very creative photo!

  • Capture the “Yes!”. With all of the excitement of your partner popping the question, it can be difficult to remember exactly what was said or the love portrayed within each other’s eyes. Hiring a photographer to capture your proposal can help preserve those memories, as well as provide as an additional surprise for your lovely lady. Being able to relive the nervousness and excitement of this once in a lifetime moment can certainly be cherished for years to come.

  • Before the “I Do’s”. You looked for the perfect dress for weeks, or longer, trying on multiple duds, so after working so hard to find it, you wouldn’t want it to go unnoticed in your photo gallery! Scheduling a pre-wedding bridal photo shoot for you as the Bride will help you get every flattering angle of you in your dress, and you won’t feel rushed for time. Also, it allows you to “break” your dress in, and feel even more confident and beautiful within it.
