1. Boudoir Shoots

A big hit with brides in recent years, boudoir shoots continue to be popular, easily earning them a spot as one of the top wedding photography trends for 2013.

Damien says that he has definitely been doing more bridal boudoir sessions as wedding photography add-ons, allowing brides to give their grooms a truly special and unique gift.

2. Same-Day-Edit Slideshows

This is another trend that’s been around for a few years and is still hot!

Damien finds that newlyweds love seeing a recap of events during the reception, and there’s hardly any question that their guests enjoy seeing some of the day’s special highlights, too.

As a unique twist on the same-day-edit concept, the photo-sharing app Wedding Snap offers a live slideshow feature that allows guests to see their own photos displayed on-screen in real-time throughout the reception.

3. Photo Booths

I’ve mentioned photo booths a lot in some of my recent posts, and it’s not very hard to see why!

Photo booths are fun for guests and the wedding couple alike, and are also incredibly easy to personalize with everything from creative backdrops to themed props.

During 2013, Damien has seen an increased interest in digital delivery instead of instant prints, as well.
