Wedding photo of the week: B&W and why I love a tree!

I’m known for being a little odd… and I’m a country girl born and bred, an artist at heart. This kind of beauty takes my breath away:

Black and white wedding photography only occasionally makes an appearance on blogs – and I’d love to see more. The beautiful contrast, the striking effect all make this photograph (from Michelle & Rob’s Yorkshire wedding to be published on Mother’s Day) one of my favourites, ever.

I’m in love with the tree, too. What? It’s timeless, strong, beautiful… and makes for a spectacular wedding picture!

    Fantastic image and well done for daring to publish a b&w photo. As a pure wedding photojournalist my preference is to shoot with b&w white images in mind – given it’s timeless and classic feel. Sadly, over the last few years with a trend for “boho” and “whimsical” Instamatic-styled wedding themes in mags and on blogs, us b&w purists have kind of been sidelined from this side of the industry…yet we’re definitely seeing an increased demand from couples for b&w and less staged wedding photography. Hopefully the blogs and magazines will begin to catch up with this. B&W has stood the test of time, Instamatic filter effects will look dated when that fad has run its course.
