Dark and Moody Wedding Photos

 Moody Vibes

Wedding photography style spotlight: dark and moody! When compared to a light and airy look, these images reflect a more emotional vibe, featuring deep shadows and contrasts. Dark and moody wedding photos capture that timeless romantic look that we all know and love! Thankfully, our photography professionals are masters at telling stories through this classic style. From shooting to editing, they know all the tricks to successfully convey your unique photography style. Are you ready to wed your wedding photos in moody matrimony? Explore our secrets for capturing dark and moody wedding photos that are trending on your Instagram feed!

All About the Contrasts

dark and moody wedding photosSaturated colors and deep shadows? Yes please! When it comes to setting a sophisticated dark and moody vibe, it’s all about bringing out the strong colors and contrasts. We LOVE how dark and moody wedding photos have a painted quality to them. Our photographers will find you the perfect dim environment to set the mood! Quick tip: window lighting works wonders! Peep Jackie and Luke’s breathtaking wedding photos to give you an idea of what we mean here! The soft window lighting in their bride prep pictures provides just the right amount of contrast with Jackie’s wedding day glam. 

Furthermore, Jackie and Luke’s  dark and moody wedding photos prove that this classic style can be captured outside, too. We’re totally swooning over their dim outdoor portraits at Valenzano Winery. The autumn trees at dusk in the background provide the ideal setting for dark and moody shots. See how the directional lighting makes Jackie’s dress pop in such a graceful way? Likewise, color blocking in wedding photography also helps to accomplish this look. Check out how Luke’s dark navy suit enhances the elegant effect. Simply stunning!

Set The Mood!

Feeling the moody vibes yet? Our photographers understand each element needed to set the mood, indoor or outdoor! When adjusting the camera settings, it’s crucial to use a wide-depth of field here. One example to take a look at is Sarah and Ed’s wedding photos at Ramblewood Country Club. See that striking wide shot of the bride and groom between the farmhouse doors? The contrast between the light and shadows is just right! This, coupled with the neutral color scheme of their surroundings, sets that dark and moody tone that we want! With our skilled photographers, setting the mood will be a breeze.

By the way, sunsets make for incredible dark and moody wedding photos! Take another look at Sarah and Ed’s portraits at golden hour. The mute glow yet gloominess of the sunset creates a remarkable contrast with the happy couple in the foreground. We can’t get enough of all this dark and moody magic!
