5 Fabulous Reasons To Add Black And White Photographs To Your Colourful Wedding Album

Weddings in India are not just full of beautiful emotions, but a lot of lovely colours as well. Be it the bright hues of the couple’s outfits, the wedding décor or the finely dressed guests, these colours simply add to the festive feeling. Hence, all the couples also love to get these bright shades locked in their wedding photos.

Well, going by the usual format, it is nice to see a colourful wedding album. But, you cannot make your wedding album truly special, unless you have a few black and white photographs in it. And, if you are wondering why we are saying so, then here are some reasons behind the same.

#1. They let the emotions speak

There is something magical about the black and white shots that give your emotions a voice. These images depict what you feel at that very moment in a very beautiful and pure form. Jayant Chhabra and Shruti Khanna, from Cupcake Productions, simply explain this by saying, “Since there are lesser colours to divert the onlookers’ attention, these photographs help them focus more on the emotions. That is why, a lot of photographers prefer using this format to capture special moments.”

#5. They give your wedding day a new perspective

While the coloured images in your wedding album remind you of your special day just the way it actually was, the black and white ones give them another perspective.

Ankit Lamba says, “The moods and expressions in the images come out amazingly in black and white photos, and their classiness cannot be described. So, it is a good idea to experiment with the different black and white presets to get good results.”
