Defining The Modern Wedding Photo

Modern wedding photos are a step away from the staged, staid, and stagnate images that were once captured at these momentous events. Now, photographers capture images of life in progress. Wedding photos show images of the groom and bride as they are jumping in mid-air and you can see the streaks made by the rice as it falls and is thrown by well-wishers.

They are more likely images of life in mid-stride instead of a proper image of the ideal family frozen in time. When we see the images, we can almost smell the champagne and the bride’s perfume. We feel as if we are reliving the moment with the people depicted.

These keepsakes take the wedding couple back to the moment they tied the knot. The arbitrary imagery is so visceral that the photo’s viewer can almost feel the environment and the emotions of the people photographed.
