If you’ve spent any time at all looking at wedding imagery trying to find the vibe that most appeals to you, you’ve most likely come across these stylistic editing terms…
Bright and Airy…
Dark & Moody…
Bright & Moody…?
And while you may understand the differences somewhat, there’s a lot that goes into the aesthetics of each one. The lighting on your wedding day, the prominent colors people wear, the time of the year and seasonal color changes, and even the time of day can all play a dramatic role in how a particular editing style looks.
First of all, you may have noticed while cruising through our website that we actually have a mix of all of these editing types. Check out the three galleries above to really see the differences. And while we may have several photographers who shoot on behalf of our brand, I am the one who will personally be editing your images and communicating with you from start to finish.
And here’s the biggest thing about the different editing styles: I dig them all. I find beauty and perfection in each one for different reasons. I edit in different ways because each wedding, person, season, and day has a unique look. And honestly, different editing styles accentuate different things, and can make or break the image.
It’s for this reason that I spend a lot of time initially picking the edit to use for a whole gallery. When we first start to discuss your photos, I will try to get a sense of your individual style. I’ll send you a questionnaire that helps me know your preferences, and I always send a sample to make sure we’re all on the same page. Then, once the style is chosen, I go through the whole gallery and adjust each image to fit your unique aesthetic.
I honestly believe there isn’t a one-style-fits-all aspect to photographing a wedding day… and there are even a dozen ways to edit something “bright and airy” or “dark and moody.” Different adjustments accentuate different details, colors, and contrasts.
When you decide to choose us to capture your wedding day, rest assured knowing that I will be customizing your images to truly fit who YOU are, and not just match our personal business color scheme. Your wedding day should reflect you who are; it’s not about us. It’s 100% about you marrying your best friend and capturing that as genuinely as possible.
