It is no secret that I am a boho lover! Whatever trends come and go, I will ALWAYS have a special love for the bohemian vibes! However, I also can’t help but love the modern and contemporary when it comes to weddings and I thought they couldn’t mix. But then I discovered the Moho trend, and I think I have found my place in the wedding photography world. It is the absolute best of both worlds, blended together to create such a stunning look. In this blog post, we will explore the essence of Moho Wedding Photography and how it can add an extra touch of magic to your special day.

What is Moho Wedding Photography?

Moho Wedding Photography is a contemporary style that beautifully blends the elegance of traditional wedding photography with a touch of bohemian artistry. Moho, short for “Modern Boho,” encapsulates the essence of free-spiritedness, creativity, and a love for nature. This style aims to capture raw emotions, candid moments, and the enchanting beauty of natural surroundings, resulting in breathtakingly authentic and timeless wedding photographs.

Why Choose a Moho Wedding Photographer?

  1. Unconventional Elegance:
    Moho Wedding Photography offers a refreshing departure from traditional posed shots, embracing a more relaxed and organic approach. The photographers adept in this style strive to capture the essence of your love story, focusing on genuine interactions and emotions. The result is a collection of photographs that truly reflect your unique personalities and the intimate moments of your wedding day.
  2. Natural Beauty:
    Nature plays a significant role in Moho Wedding Photography. Whether it’s a rustic countryside, a sun-kissed beach, or a lush garden, Moho photographers skillfully incorporate the surrounding environment into their compositions. This connection to nature creates a harmonious backdrop for your love story, evoking a sense of serenity and enchantment.
  3. Creative Artistry:
    Moho Wedding Photography embraces creativity and artistic expression. Photographers in this style utilize various techniques, such as soft focus, creative framing, and play with light and shadows, to craft visually stunning images. These artistic elements elevate your wedding photographs into true works of art, telling a story that goes beyond the surface.

How to Incorporate ‘Moho’ into Your Wedding Day

  1. Choose a Scenic Venue:
    To fully embrace the spirit of Moho Wedding Photography, opt for a venue that complements the bohemian aesthetic. Consider outdoor locations with natural backdrops, such as gardens, forests, or picturesque landscapes. These settings provide an ideal canvas for the photographer to work their magic and capture the essence of your day.
  2. Embrace Bohemian Style:
    Infuse your wedding with bohemian elements to enhance the visual appeal of your photographs. Flowing, ethereal wedding dresses, flower crowns, and dreamy accessories can all contribute to creating a boho-inspired atmosphere. Let your imagination run wild, and work with your photographer to curate a visual story that encapsulates your unique style and vision.
  3. Flowers: This style generally utilised a lot of floral touches. Dried flowers, varying textures, pampas, earthy colours. When it comes to flowers, it’s best to go big if you are wanting the moho look.
  4. Add Modern Touches: Incorporate modern trends into your wedding. The latest dresses for your bridesmaids, trending groomsmen outfits, archways, shoes, accessories, table wear, venue decor… the options really are endless here.
  5. Colours: When it comes to moho, it’s best to stick to an intentional colour palette. Earthy, natural tones are best, and when it comes to colour, add a touch but generally don’t go overboard. Choose colours that complement each other well. Infuse this colour palette throughout your entire wedding from the invitations to the dress to the decor. Think about it like your own personal wedding branding.
  6. Candid Moments and Authentic Emotions:
    Moho Wedding Photography thrives on capturing genuine moments and emotions. Instead of solely focusing on formal portraits, encourage your photographer to capture candid shots throughout the day. These unscripted moments allow for the most authentic expressions and interactions, resulting in photographs that tug at the heartstrings and preserve the true essence of your wedding day.
