Hi Paul,
I'm with Michelle ... an awesome photo! Also, I really like the black-and-white look. Any thoughts on your decision to convert from color to B&W? Again, Paul, fine work!
Kerry

Hi Kerry, Thank you!
I really like to do a lot of my wedding coverage in b&w. I think it adds a timeless quality to the photograph. In color, it looked okay, but the main light source was fluorescent with very yellow/brown walls so the color didn't look as nice, in my opinion.
With the black and white, too, you go right to the bride's eyes, and that is what I really want people to see.
Thank you so much!!
Paul
