Photos have always played a huge role in weddings. From the rehearsal dinner to the reception, couples want to be able to reflect back on the evening, but now, the documenting is continuing to the morning after.
A new trend has many newly married couples inviting a photographer into their room the morning after their wedding to have a photo shoot, sparking some provocative pictures. The trend has caused an uproar on both sides, with critics saying there is no privacy on Facebook, where the pictures usually end up, and those in favor saying the moment is arguably as beautiful as any other during the wedding process.
“This is really about recording a time where people are in love,” said Michelle Jonne, a morning-after photographer in New York. “I’m not sure why people would be upset.”
Jonne, who is credited with starting the trend, said she was inspired from Armani's underwear ads of David and Victoria Beckham. Jonne charges $650 for one morning-after photography session and retouching. Other photographers have undertaken a similar endeavor but the difference with Jonne's photos is that they are more risqué than the others.
After the photos are developed, newlyweds with more presents than room in their home, should consider Toronto affordable self storage as a realistic and space-saving option.
