Colours matter- in fact they matter a real lot! There are some important points to keep in mind when you choose the palette for your wedding day. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Wedding photography is predominantly captured in colour
  • Post processing can bring out or subdue some or all colors, rendering them differently to the original scene
  • Black and White conversions can give wedding photography new meaning, by reducing colors to shades of grey
  • Spot color applied to a black and white image can draw attention to one or more elements in the photograph, shifting the viewers interest to a different point to that within the same image in color
  • Toning can alter the mood of a wedding photo dramatically, by applying a tint to the complete picture

If you are planning your wedding day with your wedding photography in mind, try to coordinate the colors of your flowers, bridesmaids dresses and wedding cars. That doesn't mean that everything should be the same colour- but the colour palette should look pleasing to the human eye as well as the camera.

If you like spot colour in wedding photography- where part of a black and white image is brought back to real colour, then white flowers will have the least impact in this technique, as they will just remain white. Deep reds work well, however red is a half-tone, and in a true black and white photo, it reproduces as black.

Wedding photography uses bridal limousines or wedding cars- and it's worth having a think about where the cars will be photographed, and ensuring that there is color harmony with the surroundings your wedding photographer will use.

A final word about an often overlooked element in wedding photography- the humble umbrella. We don't mean photographic light modifier type umbrellas, we're referring to the ones that keep you dry during rain. These stretched pieces of nylon might end up being your co-stars in some of your loveliest wedding photos! Plain works best here- keep the corporate brollies for the golf days and seminars- you don't really need your company logo displayed prominently throughout your wedding album.

Wedding photography is about you- it needs to reflect who you are, above all else!
