Random

Yes, we’re talking snaps of feet, the back of your nan’s hat, and the father of the bride stuffing down a few too many pieces of cake. Just. Random.

They may seem like pointless pieces of photography, but in actual fact this style, in all its candid, personal glory is set to be a major trend for 2016 and we highly recommend its use on your big day.

Funny and vibrant, there is no better way of capturing the day in real-time than by taking natural shots without your guest’s knowledge.

This major photography trend isn’t going anywhere in 2016 and remains all the rage.

Make photography fun and spontaneous by getting everyone in on the action with this modern photographic style.

It’s quite simply a fun break from the traditional, posed wedding photos taken throughout the day.

The proposal

Take yourselves through a once upon a time story book by snapping the very first scene of your story book.

There is a trend emerging in 2016 where grooms-to-be are capturing their proposals to their girlfriends on film without them knowing.

You can do this by arranging for a friend or photographer to be at the scene of where you propose taking memorable snaps.

So guys, if you’re reading, get a friend to capture the moment she says ‘yes’.
