Pre-wedding shoots in 2020 are predicted to get much up, close and personal in 2020. While the previous decade saw people getting familiar with the concept of pre-wedding shoots, the concept is all set to get further personalised this year. Expect pre-wedding shoots to be more of a reflection of the personalities of the couple than just random poses clicked against the backdrops of mountains, rivers and parks.




All in a GIF-fy!

Photojournalism FTW!

Although fake candids and done to death traditional poses were already abandoned in the early years of the previous decade, candid wedding photography is all set to take an advanced, photojournalistic approach this year! With more and more wedding photographers insisting on the liberty to use their creativity freely in weddings, be ready to face the all-new whimsical, artistic yet breathtaking side of wedding photography this year, resplendent with relaxed and informal emotions and moments thriving in the wedding.




Unplugged Weddings

Although not a photography trend literally, unplugged weddings have a huge hand to play in ensuring perfect wedding photography. With more and more guests resorting to shooting the wedding themselves with their high-end phones, tablets and cameras, professional wedding pictures usually end up being compromised. Unplugged weddings on the other hand, make people unplug from their devices quite literally and bring out their real emotions which help photographers with great shots during moments like the bride's entry or the pheras.




Quirky Portraits

Gone is the era of couples striking poised, choreographed poses like the ancient regalia for portraits. Couple portraits in 2020 are predicted to be all about capturing their quirky nuances, either posed or not! Whimsical edits will also have a huge part to play here with jaw-dropping photographs that are sure to be way different than what you've seen previously.
