Watch this soldier being greeted by his dog after being away for 8 months... hard to tell who is happier.
(Really (really) sorry if you have to watch a commercial first (not my doing), but trust me, it will be worth every second of the wait.
Wendy Roe has spent the last 10 years ingrained in all things web marketing – from design/development to search/social media. In May 2010, she decided to quit the corporate life and join forces with her husband, Byron Roe, to shoot full-time one of life’s ultimate highs – weddings! She now focuses on business development and her role as a second shooter for wedding photographers, Byron Roe Photography, based in Bend, Oregon.
She is the co-author of "55 Smart Web Ideas for Photographers” e-book, a 2-time speaker at WPPI Photographer’s Ignite, and has traveled through west coast speaking and consulting with photographers on web marketing. She’s known as an "interpreter", changing technical language into easy to understand information. Above all, she’s an educator at heart and believes: “Web marketing and wedding photography are two passions that drive bringing the best out of beauty and brands.”

In the second image the couple is at the altar and I was presented with several challenges, it was dark and what light we did have came from several different light sources (temperatures) making it difficult to get a correct white balance.
To get the shot (without using flash) I jacked up the ISO, but this added noise to my bad white balance, so things are going from bad to worse.
Black and white to the rescue again, it gave me back more details, overcomes the bad white balance, and the noise simply makes it look like an "old time" black and white.
Noise can be much more easily overcome (or explained away) in black in white than it can in color.
Are they "perfect" images? No, far from it, but it can still end up being a treasured memory for the client.
