  • Colour vs. Black and White

With all my wedding couples I love to give them the option of having colour and black & white images – often when I’m editing I lean towards the black & white images, but sometimes a colour one stands out.

When I met up with Claire and Josh a few weeks back we had to deal with wind and rain. Early on I could see that the black & white images were going to stand out and I really wanted to give a sense of the weather we were shooting in. In this shot I’m using Josh to give a sense of depth whilst focusing on Claire; I positioned Claire so the wind would play games with her hair – and it worked and the image for me is full of character and depth.

The only thing I’m not sure about is whether I prefer the colour or the black & white version…?
