Every professionals must stay in touch with their industry and know the future trends. They must know the underlying and future trends so that they will be able to adapt to their industry changes. Likewise, as a professional wedding photographer myself, I have been keeping track of all the Singapore wedding photography trends.
Here are some trends of the local wedding photography in Singapore. Let me share my insights with you.
1. Indoor wedding photography is going to be extinct. In my experience, the number of people asking for indoor wedding photography decreases every year. Sooner or later, everyone will just be taking outdoor wedding photography. No one will take indoor wedding photography anymore. Indoor wedding photography is too rigid. On the other hand, the creativity that can be applied on outdoor photography is boundless. You can choose to have your wedding photo shoots any where you feel like it. The entire photo shoot experience will be much more relaxed and comfortable outside than being cooped in a studio. Moreover, people also feel the societal pressure to take outdoor wedding photography just because everyone else is doing it. Indoor wedding photography is perceived as outdated in Singapore.
2. White and pink gowns
The most commonly wore gowns by the brides are white and pink in color in my experience. What color of wedding attire the couples are wearing does make a difference to the photographer. You will have to choose the wedding venue wisely, taking into consideration the different colors that will be inside the photograph. Colors should blend together with each other and make the photograph look awesome.
3. Natural backdrop
More and more people prefers to have their wedding photographs taken in natural, scenic places rather than urban backdrops. I guess Singaporeans are tired of seeing modern buildings and skyscrapers which can be associated to stress and work. They want to take their wedding photographs in somewhere relaxing and stress-free.
