dark side

When you peruse wedding blogs & magazines, the vast majority of wedding photos are light, airy & sunny.  I haven't conducted an official study or anything but, in general, I'm pretty sure this statement rings true.  Now the dark side of weddings can be just as incredible with black skies & dramatic lighting.  Here's some love for dark, moody & romantic wedding photos!!

The happy couple (me & my hubs!!) posing by their bright yellow cab on a cobblestone street really shine against the glittering downtown Manhattan skyline & blackish-brown skies:

The colorful lights of the Ferris Wheel add a whimsical touch to a nighttime wedding portrait:

A Bride & Groom look downright angelic surrounded by a burst of white light in an otherwise dark photo:

A sparkly heart makes for a lighthearted nighttime wedding portrait:

 The Bride & Groom are the focal point of a dark perspective on a wedding portrait: 

I love how the darkness & the light truly create dramatic wedding photos.  Very different, very cool.  Do you love the dark side of wedding photography?
