are just so many opportunities to find images that speak bold color
that one could write a book on just that subject. These two examples
are from the same wedding out at Star
Hill Ranch in Austin Texas. By themselves the images are “nice”
but as part of a layout in a wedding album – they can be used
as back ground pages, or opposite each other for a full 2-page spread.
The bridesmaids dress, royal blue against a darkened background really
sets off the pink/fuchsia tones of the flowers.
black negative space could easily support additional photos or text
and can lead the eye into the next page. The groomsman image with
sapphire blue flower in shirt pocket complements the bridesmaids dress.
The white shirt also supports negative space and could have photos
arranged to the left of the shirt pocket. Together these two images
speak of color and work well together in a layout; the colors are
interesting and have potential for selective emphasis.
As wedding photojournalists – we look for images
that can stand on their own, but may also support additional imagery
that tells the story of the day’s events, your wedding.
