If you’ve read my notes about black and white wedding photography you will know that I also believe there is a place for colour too in a wedding coverage.
Typically, I concentrate on people and emotions and often those images will lend themselves more towards black and white.
However, in some cases, when colour is almost a reason for the image to be taken, then it will of course stay in colour.
This image is one of those occasions.
I shot this image at Julie and Mark’s pretty amazing festival wedding back in July 2015. Their whole day was a riot of fun and colour, lots of children being, well…children.
I spent a lot of the time at the wedding with my little Fujifilm X100T simply wandering around and looking for an image that would sum up the day in a single frame – and I think this one does it perfectly.
Unless you were there, you wouldn’t know that it really was a very family orientated day and I really enjoyed watching the children playing, riding, jumping and hopping as the the sun beat down.
I love this image because of the colour, and it absolutely needs to be in colour, but also because of the multi levels of activity that is going on.
I like to take my time looking at this picture and it keeps reminding me of the day so much.
We have dads with strollers, ladies with wine, babes in arms, big bouncy blue balls (I know there is a more elegant name for those things), kids in trucks, laughter, sunshine and even love (look carefully).
This wedding photograph is far from traditional, but one I really do love. Its a riot of colour and fun.
I hope you love it too.
