Night Photoshoots That Really let Love Shine

Photoshoot/Videoshoot Ideas

A wedding photoshoot is a must have to freeze frame your love with once in a lifetime portraits. Not the first choice for photoshoot themes, nighttime and low light photography adds intimacy, romantic flair and drama through professional lighting, clever props and talented photographers. Join us as we explore how to create magical images that show off what low light photography has to offer.

1. Writing in light

Low light photography is a great way to create magic by simple means. Utilise the space you have, or create a scene through props and create your own loved-up world; candle light and cupcakes for this picnic scene by Knotties Frame.

Fairy lights are budget friendly and versatile: hang them on trees, drape them across the ground, or why not encapsulate them in an umbrella. The effect is warm, intimate and magical.

Sparklers are also an easy way to amp up your portraits. Using a slow shutter speed you can make words, shapes, and lines to add an ethereal ambiance to your portraits.

2. Add Colour

Add some fun to your portraits through the use of colour. Use neon lights and glow sticks with a low shutter speed to create an otherworldly effect like these images by Knotties Frame. Surrounding the couple in moving light creates a sense of vibrant intimacy.

Another way to inject a bit of fun into your wedding portraits is to use fairy lights in contrasting colours as a backdrop. This portrait by Knottin Visuals shows off the couples personality through the use of backlighting in colourful fairy lights, and the use of a top flash to capture their loved up expression.

3. City Lights

If you want to steer away from props you can still create magical images by just using the light available to you. These images by Chris Chang Photography not only encapsulate the iconic love between the couple, but the monumental landmarks that surround them. A unique and candid way of making a memory.

4. The night sky

Nighttime photography is a great opportunity to grab a sky full of stars. Like this portrait by Multifolds that utilises the night sky and some fairy lights to capture this star-filled landscape, creating an image fit for fairytales.

The hour before the sunsets is ideal for wedding portraiture as it bathes the couple in a soft, warm glow. This shot by Loveinstills back lights the couple with an artificial spotlight and the peach tones of the setting sun. The back light creates a stunning silhouette of the couples closeness, creating a romantic and intimate image.
