It's that time of year where the wedding season starts to get busy for a photographer. I have some lovely weddings booked for the next season and I am starting to plan ahead. I will begin by looking at last years work, and see what worked and what didn’t. That's part of being a professional wedding photographer, always trying to improve your game.
I look at the unused images as well, and look how I can improve and obviously if something worked (posing, light etc) then I won’t change it.
Looking at new trends, I look at magazines, forums and other places to see what the clients are needing. It's no good staying the same and saying “that's what I do”. Unless you are very famous and people book you because “that's what you do”!.
So it looks like the vintage theme is still around for weddings but with a bit more style. I photographed a lovely wedding last year that used jam jars for Pimms, great idea! Lets see what this year brings..
