There’s something nice about a photograph that’s clicked from a certain height simply because it offers a different angle which allows capturing a wider area of the room as well as of the people being clicked. Shots taken on staircases look particularly good from overhead angles.

Story Tales

Another 2017 wedding photography trend that’s doing the rounds is telling a story and in this case, specifically giving the guests titbits about both the families or just about the couple. Guests want to know details such as how the couples met, what their hobbies are and what they both like about each other- which couples are more than happy to oblige.
