My Ins & Outs for Weddings in 2024 | Columbus Ohio Wedding Photographer

As we step into 2024, you’ve most likely seen some of the top wedding trend predictions grace your feeds. As a fine art wedding photographer, I love a good trend, like bows and color – yes, please! But I also think this year will be all about embracing what makes your heart happy and celebrating your love story in the most authentic way possible. And that’s by doing what you want!

Whether you’re planning your dream day or simply seeking some inspiration, I’ve compiled a few of my favorite wedding trends to share with you.


Color, Textures and Patterns

Color is making a comeback! And so are unexpected texture and pattern combinations. Couples are embracing color and other intriguing prints to infuse into their florals, table settings, invitations, and more.

Garden and Estate Venues

Couples are also gravitating towards the timeless charm of garden and estate venues for their weddings. Picture yourself among blooming gardens and opulent architecture. These venues offer a dreamy and romantic landscape to exchange vows, create memories, and celebrate.

Non-Traditional and Retro Elements

It’s okay to step away from tradition! Whether it’s through your decor, your gown, or even the day itself. Couples are breathing new life into their celebrations by opting for unique bridal gowns, whimsical decor, and weaving nostalgia and individuality into their wedding days.

Film-Like and True-to-Life Editing

We’re in the era of capturing authentic moments, and there is nothing more alluring than the depth and emotion of film photography. It brings out the best in skin tones, shadow and light, and of course, a little bit of grain is a good thing. 😉

Reception Outfit Changes

I love the surprise of reception outfit changes. 2024 is becoming your chance to showcase your style and don an outfit that you can hit the dance floor with.

Personalized Details and Experiences

Personalized details infused with personality can create memories that your guests will cherish. Think about how you can reflect your unique love story into certain elements of your day.

Genuine and Emotional Moments

Couples are craving imagery that captures genuine and emotional moments from their wedding days. While your photographer can guide you into authentic moments, it’s important to be present. Cherish the laughter, smiles, tears, and love that unfolds naturally – and allow your photographer to capture the moments.

Grand Floral Arrangements

Florals are going to take center stage. Elaborate arches, cascading table centerpieces, suspended installations that defy gravity, and bouquets that look like masterpieces.


This might surprise you, but I’m saying, “Nothing, do whatever you want!” Wedding events open up the doors to boundless creativity, so feel free to embrace the elements that resonate with you and reflect who you are a couple.
