Another question that I sometimes get from prospective clients is whether I do my own post-processing of images, and if so what kind of look do I go for. Well this is one of my favourite questions because I looooooove editing images. This is not to say I cannot take technically proficient images and need to cover that up in post, but more so to add a personal touch to them. And it is also important to note that I shoot RAW format images, which tend to be bland and dull unless some work is done on them.
So below are some simple (and slightly exaggerated) examples of trends that I have noticed in the past and present. I am not judging anyone who uses these methods – photography is subjective as far as I am concerned – but the point here is that I do not use them and I much prefer going for a more natural representation of your day than make it look like something out of a Marvel movie (unless that’s your request and I am happy to oblige :))
So there you have it. There are tons of other editing styles and trends floating around, but these are the prevalent ones in my opinion.
As a wedding photographer I think my job is not only to be there for my clients (if they have certain editing requests I am more than happy to oblige), but also to provide some value in terms of what I suggest might look better in different scenarios.
I just find natural images looking better more often than not and they prove to have that timeless quality to them. Have a look over here if you are keen on my style of photography during weddings 🙂
