I was absolutely thrilled when Julia contacted me to not only request that I will be the wedding photographer for her and her fiancé Tom, but also that I shoot exclusively in black and white!
“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!” – Ted Grant
It’s probably every wedding photographer’s secret dream to be able to shoot an entire wedding in only black and white. You can focus entirely on expression, emotions, shapes, shadows, texture, perspective and light without the distraction of colour. The result is timeless monochrome photographs which have elegance, magic and class. Every photo immediately feels more romantic and intimate. The traditional white/ivory wedding dress lends itself particularly well to black and white photography because it immediately captures the eye and draws attention to the bride. Although not the most common choice for weddings, black and white photography creates a strong sense of mood and can feel even more photojournalistic/reportage compared to colour photographs.
