Weddings Are Pretty Much ……..Black & White


John Spink

Weddings are not always so black & white. When it comes to planning, budget, food, the guest list etc., what starts off as a simple celebration can quickly turn into a quagmire of unforeseen issues. For pictures on the other hand, black and white – is black and white, even when the entire take is shot in color.  Yes, there is some creative time involved in wedding post-production with adjustments – but some beautiful results occur there bringing some great results. Ron and Regina were married at St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, Georgia. Built just after the turn of the millennia, this is a large church and has a traditional feel to it, without the poor lighting symptoms that plague other older churches. The reception was held at Founders Hall that kicked into high gear with some Louisiana, New Orleans style partying with handkerchiefs, parasols and temporary fleur-de-lis tattoos.

There are a variety of choices when it comes to how you want your pictures to look. There are some investment additions when looking at black and white or tinted photos – but if your photography tastes are suited for these artistic expressions, they are well worth exploring. Just ask me about how we can make your images tailored to your needs.

Presenting – Mr & Mrs Portrait

Rhodes Hall in Atlanta gives the atmosphere of elegance & pageantry.

Most bride and grooms do not want to see each other until after the ceremony which puts a little pressure on when it comes to making a good, couple’s portrait. If it isn’t the church’s bridal coordinator trying to run you out – then its the anxiety of the couple wanting to get to the reception that throws a wrench into having the quality time to make great portraits. I usually like to do about 5-7 different situations with the bride and the groom following the post-ceremony group shots – time permitting. Some of the portraiture happens in the posing and environment at hand – others come within the event itself.

Lots of movies have been shot in Covington, Georgia.

The Carter Center lends itself to some wonderful spots to shoot in.

Villa Christina had this great piano which the bride, a pianist herself, appropriately posed with her new husband.

Naylor Hall in Roswell is a favorite for many.

Chateau Elan has several areas to make some great images.

All roads lead to Rome – Rome, Georgia at Belle Terra.

I have stressed the importance of budgeting time in these situations so that memorable portraiture can be done properly. It takes a little coaching and follow up – but we make sure it happens, and our clients see why and are thankful we did.
