True, i find black and white photography much easier to deal with than color photography. True, i sometimes transform a color photo to black and white because I'm not happy with its original colors, they don't satisfy my photoreceptor cells and i choose the easy way out. True, i prefer color photography to black and white just because i understand (or at least i hope to understand) the challenge behind it. YET, i deliberately blackened and whitened the following photos. I wanted to come as close as possible to what i remember to be my mom and dad's wedding photos. I have never photographed a wedding and despite the grueling hard work i very much enjoyed shooting this one. There were traditions involved - the kind that I, as a Romanian, understand and i really hope i captured them.
