"Is it possible to get black and white as well as color photographs, or do couples typically have to
decide between one or the other?"
If your photographer is shooting RAW files, (and Heaven help you if he's not) they are recorded in full color. A correct workflow would predicate that they all be edited in color and then a batch of b&w images made later. Certainly, some images will translate much better in b&w than in colorbut, in my opinion, to give a bride no choice in the matter is to impose an improper level of personal opinion over what is aesthetically pleasing. Of course we are artists and our opinion matters but I feel that, in this matter, it should be up to the bride, so I always deliver every photograph in color and also in b&w.
