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!!

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?
