Wedding photography trends are getting bigger and better. If, like us, you love the idea of playing with colors and photography styles, why not hire a smoke machine for your big day.

Believe it or not, flares with colored smoke are very easy to get hold of and use. You can find them in all kinds of colors and you will only have to opt for the one that makes the most contrast in photography. The possibilities are immense and surely your photographer will have hundreds of ideas to play with. However, the most important thing is that you let them work to their full capacity; the more smoke there is, the more artistic your photos. And don’t restrict the smoke effect to your wedding day, they can catch the eyes of your guest on wedding invitations and engagement photos!

The best we can recommend, of course, is that the colored smoke be used in an open space. The contact with nature, a forest backdrop or a garden, will allow you to have a better effect when letting off the bomb. In addition to using it with great care, the objective should be to achieve inspiring portraits that reveal not only the aesthetics and vision of your photographer, but also your style and the love you have for art. Thanks to the movement of these flares, the difference between the movement of smoke and the rigidity of the human body create a sensational contrast. Don’t forget to play around with different poses to achieve a good selection of photos to choose from. Don’t be shy!

Nature is, without a doubt, one of the best backdrops for photos with colored smoke; however you can also choose frames that bet on a modern and cosmopolitan tint. If your style is more alternative, do not miss the opportunity to conquer the corners of a magnificent forest with these colorful pumps, but you can also bet on old and worn spaces that create the perfect harmony between the movement of smoke and the feeling of abandonment in an artistic proposal without limits. The interior of a parking lot, for example, is perfect to achieve an urban feel, while the night will be the ideal setting to play with light, color and the most meaningful emotions.

If it is about playing with these types of photos, remember that clothing is important too. Think that this is your great opportunity to get involved with an artistic vision that combines the smoke of colors and fashion, as if in a magazine! The most interesting will be the emotions that are born in the middle of each shot. This will be your time to explore and show your romance.
