We all know that both color and black-and-white images are essential to document the planning that went into your day and the moments that will define it in your memory for years to come. Every bride and groom wants to capture the beautiful colors of their wedding… your colorful bouquet and the rich colors of your bridesmaids dresses. Your wedding will have so much beautiful color, but when it comes to capturing those special moments that live in your mind forever, black-and-white is so perfect.
Emotional moments are captures so beautifully through black-and-white photography. Without all the colors, the black and white photo allows the subject to truly shine through! Moments throughout your wedding that are very intimate such as the kiss and the first dance… those are all moments you really want the emotion that you felt at that time to shine through when you look at the photo.
Today we want to share a few gorgeous black and white wedding photos with you, so you can see what we are talking about…. how they truly are great for showing emotion and capturing those special moments of your wedding day. You will also hear from a few photographers about their love of black and white photography!
The first few photos we want to share with you are from Misty Enright Photography. Here is what Misty has to say:
“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE black and white images as part of a wedding coverage. I convert images to black and white as a way to convey emotion in candid moments, to show contrast, in detail shots, and I always try to shoot one close up of the bride and groom individually in black and white. It is clean and classic and a part of the way I see a wedding day.”
Next, we have Dion with Dion Robert Photography. Here is what Dion had to say about this couple:
“They were a romantic and elegant couple. The bride looked so poised in every photo I took, even the candid ones. The grooms smile would light up the room and was more than photogenic. It was such an ease and privilege to photograph such a beautiful couple.”
As you can see, the black and white really brings out the moment and makes the subject stand out. It truly makes these photos those special defining moments that you will remember forever. Here are some other black and white photos that we love and wanted to share.
We hope this post has showed you how wonderful black and white wedding photos can be! Of course, you will want photos in color that showcase the beautiful hues and details of your wedding day that you will want to remember forever, but having black and white ones is important as well!
