North Wales Wedding Photographer: How much editing will I do on your wedding photos?

One of the most common questions I get is ‘Can you photoshop…. x,y or z?’

And the answer is yes, most of the time, but that’s not to say I would.

In fact, I do very little retouching unless my client specifically asks for it; I prefer to make people good ‘in camera’.

Everyone has an angle, a side, or features that look better than others, and it’s much easier and preferable to use lighting and camera angles to make you look your best.

Having said that, although I may not do a great deal of retouching, I’ll often do things like change the exposure or colours of a photograph, or even removed unwanted elements from a picture.

The image below gives an example. This sort of thing can take quite a bit of work, but I include it in the price of all my wedding packages.

North Wales Wedding Photographer - Beaufort Park, New Brighton

I liked this location at Beaufort Park because the slope meant we could really show-off Hayley’s dress.

The foliage and tree branch also make for a nice compostion.

My umbrella, the power cables and the fence weren’t so great, so removing them was the first step.

I could have made Hayley climb over the fence so those things wouldn’t be a problem, but I’d already made her do that on the pre-wedding shoot and I didn’t think she’d be too impressed if I asked her to do it again in her wedding dress!

The next thing I did was make Hayley and her dress lighter and the scene a bit darker, to make her stand out more.

Finally, I added blue to the image and removed a bit of green, … looks better, doesn’t it?

Apologies to Hayley for making her stand on a slop in her  wedding shoes x

North Wales wedding photographer: Newborough 1930s photo shoot – Anglesey

Had lots of fun doing a 1930s style photo shoot on Sunday.

Thanks to my models Abi Low & Lyndon Marshall, and to Alex Plows and Tam Tomkins for wardrobe and styling.

Please find them at http://facebook.com/thomasine.j.tomkins and http://weimarproductions.wordpress.com/

We started with this painting called the singing Butler by Jack Vettrianno, which we used as a reference image for the kind of look we wanted to go for:

We then took all our gear, costumes and props – including a bottle of wine – down to Newborough beach on Anglesey and made the most of the nice weather we’re having.

It was loads of fun, and here are the images…
