When I take photos of the wedding day I like to take a few moments for portraits. It really only takes a moment. I ask for two variations because if you just take one then eyes may be closed or the expression may not be quite right. I don't usually ask for more than two because it is also easy to get bored. In this way (willing) family and guests will receive three photos. A colour version, one in monochrome and as with these examples, a sepia with a white vignette.

Photos are taken wherever the bride, groom or guests happen to be, but take a look at the backgrounds. Very often a plain wall that you would not normally consider as a background works very well, especially when you point the flash to the ceiling. This gives a gradual change in tone from top to bottom.

Happy snapping
