Question for DW Photographers - Favorite Colors?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I'm still not set on the colors for our wedding, and I could really see myself going in a number of directions here (though I do have some ideas in mind).

 

Since we are really investing in our photography (the lovely Ms. Elizabeth Medina!), I would like to choose colors that specifically "POP" with our location (Las Caletas).

 

Obviously, orange would pop against the blue ocean - but that is actually one color I just don't really see myself doing (along with yellow).

 

Here's where the color(s) would specifically come into play: BM dresses (MOH has light complexion but does tan, 1 BM with beautiful ebony skin & 1 BM with olive skin), chair ties, GM shirts or ties, Groom Shirt or Tie. And then flowers. Also, I'm very fair-skinned with freckles and blond hair so I don't want something that will clash with me. lookatme.gif

 

So, what have been some of YOUR favorites to photograph - color wise?

 

I'd love to hear what y'all have to say - whether they're just personal favorites of yours, or if you have a particular suggestion for our little group... I'm all ears!

 

TIA! :)

Looking at Elizabeth's work, I'd go with really bold colors. Maybe bright pinks and greens? Throw in some yellows? Her work amazes me because it has such vivid colors and such POP... so I would definitely think about that.

Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of a deep fuschia and some sort of green. Originally my colors were teal, green & hints of fuschia. Then I thought maybe fuschia should be the main color. Now I'm considering a shade of green though...

Elizabeth's bold use of color was one of the top selling points for us! pinkie.gif

I'm a photographer AND I'm getting married in September. I decided to go with magenta as my key color because I love how it looks outside. There are some obnoxious tones of it, but there are also some really lovely jewel-toned magentas.

 

Then, I'm using lots of silver and white, and a hint of green. So in many cases the magenta will be a pop of color.

 

I'm with you on the orange. I love it in photos and on so many brides, but it just isn't for me.

Sounds lovely :)

I agree - if you go with the right shade, then I think it can work.

We don't really have many places to add in color (the island is our decoration! lol), so I don't know how I'd go about adding in accent colors... hmmm

I love how those chair bows are tied. I think that's much prettier than the normal bow which never looks like a bow because it's blowing in the breeze. Not that my opinion has anything to do with colors... I'm just saying! :)
