I keep threatening this, a whole wedding in black and white. I just feel that what draws me are the moments and the moments speak louder with no colour.
Also, I've got to stop using "just" apologetically.
I make zero apologies.
I've been thinking a tonne about creating and where the work I make sits in that space. I don't feel I'm a creator.

I've only shared black and white photos from the reception part of this wedding - I get that colour is real, and nice, and wonderful and all that. But moments are louder in black and white.Read More
