I’m frequently asked by couples or potential clients about the editing process that I apply on my photos. How much do I edit the images? Are the photos coming so light and colourful straight out of my camera? Or, do I use Photoshop to enhance people’s appearance? (such a controversial topic!) These are some of the common questions I get asked many times.
Thanks to my years of experience photographing beautiful weddings, I’ve developed a post- production workflow that allows me to deliver a full wedding gallery in just few weeks, even during busy seasons!
It’s important to know that an image is made in the moment that is taken. A bad photo will never become a good one just because of “the magic of the editing process”. On the other hand, every single photo needs to be edited. There’s no way I can deliver straight out of camera photographs! Professional cameras produce flat images with dull colours in order to keep all the possible information in them (“RAW” format).
In my first weddings I was crazy retouching every single imperfection and trying every preset style on the market. This were wrong things! But now, after years of experience, I know what I need in a photo, I know what I can achieve in post-production before even taking it and I have developed my own standards. Shooting consistently is vital for my light and airy style and my workflow. This way I can batch edit a lot of images with my preset and only a few clicks, being able to deliver photo galleries so much faster.
Here are some “before and after” examples and cases. Move the slider in the horizontal images to see the editing process.
