While popular pattern and color styles come and go with the seasons, as a photographer it’s important to stay on top of the current trends and offer the best options for your clients. A current style trend we’ve noticed this year are themed Chalkboard Backdrops – specifically for two pretty different niches: school portraits and wedding party pictures!

School Portraits

School portraits are taken every year, but that doesn’t mean they have to be the same traditional shot you’re used to seeing. School chalkboard backdrops are a fun and relevant way to tie in the classroom theme to more memorable portraits. Alphabet scribbles pair nicely for elementary grade models, or heavy block lettering make a statement for upcoming grads.

Wedding Party Portraits

Even more popularly used are chalkboard backgrounds for wedding portraits. A distressed slate chalkboard backdrop with custom text like the bride and groom’s names, romantic quotes and special dates displayed in a beautiful arch on the backdrop can make wedding portraits much more special and unique to the married couple. The chalkboard style writing is popular for outdoor and garden weddings to enhance the DIY look.

Painting and designing a large chalkboard backdrop by hand can be time-consuming and expensive to commission. A quicker and easier route may be opting for a computer printed backdrop. We offer several bridal chalkboard backdrop styles ready for easy customization with your wedding details, starting as low as $65.
