Do you need a toastmaster for your wedding day?

Why I love black and white photographs

I don't hide the fact that I absolutely love black and white photographs, but why? Black and white strips the picture of all the distractions and just leaves the subject to focus on. There's no colours, flashy logos, different colour clothing to take your eye away...

How do I deliver your photographs?
