Usually it's a white family that gets the recoloured treatment, let's see how good you are at recolouring a coloured family in.

Single brown shade used Chris or several variants with the skin tones?

My fast method here was to select the skintones and put it on a new layer.
A new layer for the dress, the suits, the background wall.
On every layer i used the curves to get the desired colors.
The top layer (burn) is filled with 50%grey, set on linear light for additional modulation of the skintones. Just paint with brown color and a soft brush with opacity 3.

The JPEG artifects (am I using the term correctly?) is all sorts of wack in this image, tried to get out as much as I can. But overall may I present: My first attempt at colorisation. :)
