Moody and Modern Wedding Theme

October 29, 2019

Blue Black and White Wedding Theme


The term Moody Photography means so much to me and I can write at least three hundred pages about it. You ask why? – Because that’s the reason I fell in love with my job in the first place. For me, moody photography brings intense emotions, and that doesn’t mean the photo needs to be filled with dark and gloomy feelings, on the contrary, it can bring so much love, sexiness, and happiness.

Brides tend to shy away from using black in a color scheme because it is so dark.  Sometimes people can totally get the wrong image from the dark theme, but with adding the right complementary colors, and touches you will end up with the perfect color palette for your wedding.

Therefore, I want to show you a little inspiration, with black as one of the colors for this styled wedding. That is why, today in this blog post, I am sharing with you one of my favorite shoots, styled after my photography business branding. The modern, mature bride inspired this moody blue and gold geometric wedding shoot. And the main goal is to show you that–“what makes you imperfect to the rest of the world can be what your true love finds most appealing… and to embrace it, and own it as yourself.”

Inspired Moody and Modern Wedding Theme Board

The color palette behind the Moody Blue and Gold Geometric Wedding Theme is black and white, with touches of light blue, a combination of blue and green emerald color, and elegant gold details. Thanks to the awesome vendors, for us to get that luxury modern feel, we’ve added a lot of unique flowers and cool geometric shapes in little details–from the cake and desserts to the reception table setup.

Take a look at the color palette board and the photos from the styled shoot and get your inspiration. Feel free to pin your favorite photos on Pinterest and let me know in the comments if you end up choosing this perfect modern wedding theme.

  1. […] Personally, I’ve had the opportunity to shoot two recent weddings as well as a styled shoot that featured a black wedding dress. All of them were absolutely stunning. All of the feedback that I heard about their dresses was positive and affirmative. Ultimately, black was the perfect choice for those brides. I love the way all of the images turned out, and believe it helped to capture their individuality and spirit. I think black would be an amazing choice if paired with a moody, modern wedding theme.

Photography for me is a dialogue, a way to express the depth and range of your story.

I take pride in creating a visual narrative that resonates with the essence of who you are, capturing your journey with an artful eye and a heart for the genuine. I find beauty in the balance – where stunning, editorial-inspired visuals meet the spontaneous joy of your special day. My style is a blend of the bold and the delicate, the dramatic and the tender.
