If you are unsure what we mean by sepia, think back to those old photographs of relatives from years gone by with the brownish colour tinge to them – that’s sepia.
For a really traditionally themed Wedding, a whole album of sepia photographs will be ideal, though for all other Wedding themes this may prove a little overpowering. Sepia images have a warm and romantic feel to them and you will find that the most flattering shots are taken in sepia.
Close-up shots of the Bride and Groom will be simply stunning in sepia and you will find that any blemishes, spots or bags under the eyes will hardly be noticeable. Sepia photographs are far less popular than their full colour or black and white counterparts these days, but when scattered throughout a Wedding Album, the result can be very dramatic and endearing and provide images that catch your eye and put a lump in your throat.
Having read up on the colour options open to you, think long and hard in advance about what will suit the Wedding theme and your personalities and taste. Whether you opt for full colour, black and white or sepia images, just make sure that your photographer can provide it, and if not, find one who can!
