Before & After :: French Creek Estates Wedding Photo

wedding photography french creek estates snohomish photo


Before and After from my niece’s wedding in September. The original image straight out of the camera (SOOC) is above and the after with edits is below. You can see that the original was pretty great without any edits. This photo was only edited in Lightroom. Edits made to the original photo:

  • Lens profile corrections
  • Cooled the temperature down a little bit
  • Very slightly increased the exposure
  • Increased contrast
  • Pulled down the highlights quite a bit
  • Edited the tone curve to give a very, very slight matte effect
  • Itty, itty bitty bit of sharpening

    It is an amazing photo Cheryl.
    Hands down a truly stunning image goes well beyond “you camera takes really nice pictures”
    It was such a lovely wedding and we had the whole “family” of vendors working it.
