I’m a big fan of black and white images so when I shoot weddings I always make sure I have a nice mix of vibrant contrasty colours as well as the smooth timeless tones of monochrome. Some scenes and environments completely suit the black and white medium, for example when you are indoors with lots of different artificial light sources. Each light source gives off a different colour temperature which can really detract from the image and play havoc with skin tones. You may be surprised to see some outdoor shots also converted. Overcast days with moody dark clouds really work in black and white, in fact pretty much any image can look awesome with great light in monochrome!
I photographed the amazing rustic wedding between Megan and Barney at Hyde House, Stow on the Wold in the beautiful Cotswolds and made sure I shot lots of black and white as the bride loves the look. I think monochrome really focuses the eye on the light and the details within. If you have never tried it why not pick up your camera and give it a go. You may be surprised with the results, I love it,
