Shrey Bhagat, co-founder of Knotting Bells, shares the best wedding photography for the year ahead.

1995 was just the beginning of recreating scenes from the big screen with your significant other. Over the past few years, especially starting in 2018, the spectrum of #ReCreate has expanded to track and integrate TikTok trends, Instagram challenges, Snapchat filters and more! Obviously, photography being an ideal representation of what is happening in the world, no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic has also brought the wedding industry to a halt. We were already on the right track to regain our initial rhythm. Shining a light on the silver lining, this pandemic has encouraged us to explore things and work in ways we never thought we could. because, as we said in 2014, we do what we do to celebrate love, no matter how demanding and trying the conditions may be, but as there are two sides to a coin, the pandemic has put several forms of photography on the trending radar with several options to explore.

Intimate wedding photography is #TheNewNormal

With the current scenario, the days of mass weddings at fancy wedding venues are over, although they were a joy to film and watch. Due to the lockdown, the strict security measures for taking photos resulted in more authentic and intimate photographs. Now it’s about filming the couple in their happy environment in their garden, their houses or their streets. Plus, it captures the celebration of love with the closest friends and family. I personally think that as a photographer it gives us a sense of happiness while capturing the raw emotion. Small and intimate weddings have played a big part in how we see photography today, it’s no longer just about glitz and glamor as is often said, it’s more about capturing reality subtle, making it more real than reality itself.

Instagram Reels to give you all the feels

With the new Instagram Reels feature, the entire wedding photography industry has seen a paradigm shift. Reels have changed the perspective of videos on all platforms and I think good wedding photographers would be those who use Instagram Reels to strongly separate themselves from the rest of the pack because with this new 15 second feature, who knew that so many emotions and feelings could be experienced. With the whimsical effects and transitions available, every wedding will have a reel stand, enticing guests to do something unique and iconic.

Wedding Editorial Sessions

The traditional way of capturing wedding photos is long gone, now every shot needs to tell its own story. Wedding photography has evolved into much more than just capturing the event, it is now about capturing every mood along the journey of emotions, bringing every element together and capturing every little detail and turning them into unadorned photographs through which all emotions can be relieved, sending the lucky couple back in time. Shoots like this are the perfect example of turning magical moments into everlasting memories.

Pre-wedding photo session for the perfect two

Due to the current scenario, pre-wedding shoots also known as engagement shoots have become the need of the hour. The luxury of a mini getaway before the big day to capture in the purest form the love between partners in a derivative location amidst rich architecture and a sea of ​​blues has become possible with a moderately priced lower and adhering to health protocols and travel restrictions amid the pandemic. Since destination weddings seem like a distant dream at the moment, dream pre-shoots with a limited number of professionals are on the rise.

Cinematic style on the big screen

This type of photography helps you tell the story, but in style. Being an ode to all movie buffs to achieve their dream on the big screen, this trend not only breaks the boredom but also adds the drama of color and fun that is often needed to capture the important day. This was seen as a big trend in the pre-covid era and it will soon gain momentum because who doesn’t want their wedding album to look like a scene straight out of a movie.
