Bitten by the Wedding Shutterbug

And in heat of that heart-warming Sindoor moment…Just as the groom inks his fingers with a bright red promise, the photographer adjusts his focus on the bride’s expression… Lighting check, texture check, colours check, expressions check. Just like that, a timeless moment is captured. Like etching on stone, it will be one that you can touch and feel for years on. Lord knows, a good photograph will always bring back dear memories with it. With so many brilliant wedding photographers in the market today, we’re rolling in options.

There is no denying that innovation and style have truly sky rocketed, sweeping us of our feet and giving us a serious case of the wedding shutterbugs. The only suitable remedy that comes to mind, is dwelling deeper into all things wedding and photography.

For starters, let’s identify the metamorphosis of photography in the wedding industry. You no longer have one or two camera men recording the event in a standardized fashion. The wedding industry has evolved to integrate the art of storytelling, which heavily reflects in the imagery. Couples are familiar with the process of scanning through mood boards and conceptual shoot ideas months in advance, making the visuals exclusive to ‘their’ journey of coming together. This noted shift in mentality gives a lot of room for creative spaces to thrive and is attributed the need for individuality or uniqueness to the couple, as well as recognizing the value of quality over cost. With smoke bombs and flower showers draping picturesque landscapes and designer wear, everybody is inclined to splurge on wedding photography. Then again, you may wonder. Why should one hire steeply priced professionals for the same? Simply put, the more beautiful the pictures, the more beautiful the memories. It goes without saying that weddings are a colorful tsunami of emotions and details and so, it must be shot with finesse. In fact, noting down minute–to-minute details of expected shots and important moments can go a long way in ensuring nothing is missed out!
