Amazing Photography Idea #1
- BLOW EVERYONE'S MINDS WITH SMOKE BOMBS! -
A relatively new trend has been gracing the feed on Pinterest for weddings - smoke bombs!! Create a completely random, totally unique and etherial image by using something as simple as a smoke bomb!
Your photographer will probably need the help of an assistant to capture these types of dreamy landscapes, hopefully dry air, and very little wind! They're easy to purchase, and come in an array of colours, so you can get so creative and have so much fun when you unlesh the unscripted beauty of a smoke bomb, as captured so beautifully by Malou Peters and Jessica Oh below.
An assistant can be hiding just off the frame of the shot to get the smoke in a good position, or the couple can play with the smoke bombs themselves and create the movement.
Amazing Photography Idea #2
- LOOK TWICE WITH DOUBLE EXPOSURE -
This whimsy effect is down to pure talent by the photographer, coupled with a bit of luck! You could talk to your photographer before the day to ask if they can take a few captures of the location or landscape so that you can receive a couple of super-special double-exposure photos in your album. They can either achieve the double-exposure affect by some skillful Photoshop or even in-camera techniques.
Amazing Photography Idea #3
- (LITERALLY) BREATHTAKING UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY -
Amazing Photography Idea #4
- LONG EXPOSURE NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY -
By late in the evening both you, your new hubby and the photographer are probably all feeling really confident and creative with your wedding photos! Time to let your hair down and try something totally new! All you need are some sparklers, a torch or even an LED light, a tripod and a little bit of patience! Your photographer will change the settings on their big fancy camera to allow for a long-exposure photo, which may be up to about 10 seconds long. This means that you have 10 seconds to stay still as a handy assistant will run around and 'paint' with light! The results speak for themselves, and surely a moment in time you will treasure forever.
