Are Smoke Bombs the Next Big Trend in Wedding Photography?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been seeing signs that there might be a new trend on the rise in wedding photography—or at least a new trend in the props used in wedding photography: smoke bombs.

They’ve become quite a hot topic online; you yourself have probably seen a few photos showing brides and grooms swirling about with colorful clouds of smoke off in the background. And we’re digging it. It’s a really neat concept that adds a touch of fun and whimsy to your portraits, and it seems more and more couples are catching on to the idea. Take a look:

Incredible things happened yesterday with Taylor and Jorden in Northwest Arkansas. We will have more from this one coming soon. Congrats you two!

We checked in with a few of our local photographer friends, and while none of them had yet to shoot off a smoke bomb at any of their recent weddings, all of them were hoping to try the trick out soon.

We’d love to know your thoughts, though! Would you try out a smoke bomb at your wedding?
