“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”
― Ted Grant
I came across this quote and immediately felt the want to share some of my favorite black and white wedding photos I’ve captured overtime. I remember learning a little on how to “properly” take black and white wedding photos, I quickly became overwhelmed by all the instruction that was given. My search efforts didn’t last very long and I countinued to do shoot how I felt was right for my style.
“So what do I look for when considering a black and white photo?” you may ask. Simply put, moodiness(if that’s a word) a style I’ve come to fall under— but really love. I’ve heard the expression— in reference to Good Omen as, dark and moody wedding photography and have even been called a dark and moody wedding photographer( I didn’t know whether to be offended at that comment, or feel honored) either way I roll with it.
Over time I’ve learned to see a black and white photo that will be to my liking— even before actually taking the photograph. Many things in life come with rules, but I believe some rules are meant to be broken.
