Cupcake Cakes!

Cupcake cakes have skyrocketed in use at wedding ceremonies this year. We are seeing many brides choosing cupcakes for their reception versus the traditional wedding cake. There are several reasons for choosing a “cupcake” cake for your big day. For starters, cupcakes are quite versatile. A typical cake simply leave the bride confined to less flavor options. Flavors are restricted to one per layer and the frosting is normally limited to one flavor. Cupcakes nevertheless, make it easy for the bride to have several cake flavor options for their guests to choose from. Even more, every individual cake can be decorated differently with different toppings or frostings. Some brides even decide to have separately decorated cake stations and use different flavors and cake toppers for each. A huge upside to these cakes is that they can be stored more securely and are much easier/safer to transport to the wedding venue. Lastly, the cupcake wedding cake is a serious statement piece. Here are a few examples:

5 Wedding Photography Trends of 2014

Wedding Photo

Wedding photography has changed a lot since our parents got married three decades ago. That said even though photography trends have changed there are very few couples who know much about the latest trends or upcoming trends. This often means that they don’t know exactly what they should be looking for when hiring a photographer to cover their wedding. The important thing that wedding couples should always remember when hiring a professional is to never hire one simply based on if or not they are using the latest and the most expensive equipment. It should be based on their portfolio and if they are able to shoot your wedding based on the latest trends, five of which have been described below.

Trend no. 1: Celebrity wedding style

Almost every wedding couple may want to feel like a celebrity and this particular wedding photography style makes it possible. This particular style brings red carpet style posing to wedding couples. The resulting pictures are often of couples who are acting out famous movie and music video scenes. This allows for the photographer to create new and unique themes which look like photos on a glossy film magazine cover.

Trend no. 2: Soft toned black & white pictures

Black & white film cameras may have been replaced with their color counterparts a long time ago but there was a certain class that these monochrome pictures had. Today even with the latest photography equipment many photographers like the black & white effect especially when it comes to wedding photography. The amazing thing about this sepia or soft toned monochrome photography is that it is very classy, clear and stylish, it can also be edited to suit certain themes and artistic tastes.

Trend no. 3: Very deep color themes

A growing number of wedding photographers are leaning in the favor of using a combo on low light photography and dramatic skies to produce pictures that are stunningly deep. This effect is usually achieved during weddings that take place at night or during the reception which is under an open sky. However, if you opt for this particular photography style the professional should be able to provide you with a few tips on what you’ll need to do in order for the pictures to turn out as expected. This type of photography is ideal for beach weddings.

Trend no. 4: Candid photography

This year we may see a growing number of couples opting for candid photography because it combines their unique acting talent with the photographer’s ability to shoot their best sides. However, even though a lot of the candid shots will be composed but they need to look spontaneous which can be difficult. So, many wedding photographers will start by creating a scene in which couples need to act spontaneously just so that the pictures don’t look planned.

Trend no. 5: Bold colors

This type of photography literally turns up all the bold colors at the wedding party. So colors in the flowers, the dress, accessories etc. will all pop. Many professional wedding photographers will provide their clients with a list of bold colors that they need to use. Any shortfall in bold colors will then be filled during post production.
