I love black and white photography - I always have.
The viewer is drawn into the emotion of the image, removing the distraction of colour allows us to connect at a deeper level with the subject we are viewing.
Black and white wedding photogrphy lends itself to the popular reportage style of shooting. I love capturing the speeches in black and white as it is such an animated part of the wedding day - the guests laughing, crying or just plain dumbfounded at what is being said! The natural human emotions in these photographs is appealling and make the photogrphs more complex and interesting.
I think it is a mistake to just limit black and white wedding photography to just one style of photograph. As you can see from this gallery - Black and White Photography can do so much bringing out the emotion and the drama of the day, adding a timeless approach and an emotional appeal, black and white photogrphy is the master at bringing out the human element and injecting life into your wedding photographs.
