The ultimate light for wedding photography
Profoto A1X and A1
What makes a wedding image stand out?
Wedding photography is not only about finding the right poses for your couple or the best camera angles. More importantly, it’s about the light - because great light is what makes an image stand out from the crowd. The Profoto A1X and A1 deliver natural and beautiful light on demand - and are incredibly easy to use. Along with their super-fast recycling time, you’ll be sure to never miss a shot.

Wedding photography trends
From what I see, wedding trends are leaning for finding more and more unique ways to decorate and celebrate two people in love. It’s made photographing so much fun!
I see the trend going towards an even more personal touch with people incorporating unique details into their weddings. So, if a couple is into spirituality, they would include crystals or other spiritual details into the wedding.
Unplugged ceremonies – asking guests to put their devices away and being in the moment. I’ve also seen an increase in couples that want handmade wedding albums. People are realizing that having digitals are essential, but that they also want to enjoy their images long term in a physical album.
Bridal couples want their weddings to be unique and personal. This leads to strong lifestyle documentary wedding photography and less posing or staging. At least my clients want both: they want genuine emotions yet artistically framed.
I think that beauty shots of the bride are becoming more important, and that
dresses are less fitted than before. Therefore, more movement is required in the images, to show off the design of the dress. I also feel that weddings are becoming more relaxed.
Honestly, we don’t know, because we don’t really care about trends. Trendy photos can often be eye candy, but it’s the soul in the images that make them timeless.
