A common trick of digital editing is Selective Colorization. That is where you have a single color in an otherwise black and white photo. Here is a straightforward tutorial on how to do that in GIMP.
Here is an example. Note the red on the belt.
I had a mini tripod with me, but this post actually was a bit higher and was in a perfect spot to catch the better half and I with some great Yosemite High Country views in the background.
I’m a voracious reader, and have devoured my share of photography books.

Shooting weddings is all about the bride. Ya, you have to get the other relatives, including the groom, in some of the shots, but the focus is on the bride. It’s her day and she is the primary buyer.
There was a wedding going on at a hotel just outside Yosemite National Park I was at and I watched the wedding photographer photograph the bride and bridesmaids. He did a fantastic job of fussing over the bride. A very extensive set of shots of her, the bride maids, flower girls and the bride’s parents.
He spent about half the amount of time shooting the groom and the grooms men. Those were were good shots, but they were not nearly as extensive.
