My style in wedding photography is always to try to keep the photographs timeless in appearance. When you look back in time at your wedding photographs in 10, 20 years time they look as pristine as the day they were taken.
Fashion and trends in wedding photography always come and go but a beautiful timeless colour or black-and-white images will always remain.
This is no exception when producing black and white wedding photography.
Right throughout my career as a wedding photographer and now entering my eleventh season, shooting over 300 weddings I love seeing and converting wedding images to black-and-white.
I always feel black-and-white images capture the emotion and details that make you feel that you are/were part of that photograph when looking at it.
This year on the blog I aim to post more regularly and bring in more in this series of black and white wedding photography.
The first wedding I’ve chosen is the beautiful story of Emily and Ben’s wedding day.
As you can see all the details really stand out in the black and white wedding photography with all of the emotions are emphasised in the image.
Prior to capturing one of our signature one-to-one images I always think to myself should this be a colour photograph or black and white wedding photograph.
I just love this image Ben and Emily are having a quiet moment before the speeches start waiting to be announced into the room and I was professional in giving them that private moment but capturing it via the mirrored table.
Needless to say, you can see from the images above the speeches were very emotional but again just capturing it and emphasising it in black-and-white really tells the story of wedding photography.
The image above is one of my favourites from the series is basic and beautiful as Emily looks out of the window the photograph makes you wonder what she’s looking at and what she’s thinking at this particular time. A Timeless and classic wedding photograph.
What wedding is not complete without the first dance as Ben and Emily gaze into each other’s eyes with their friends and family around the black-and-white image shows off all the details especially of the couple in the moment.
Our Story of Emily and Ben’s Wedding photography is captured at the Old Vicarage Hotel in Southwell, Nottinghamshire.
