    Sugestions to really make my Wedding Photos pop!

    Hi All,

    I am only just starting in the photo editing world. i have been taking photos for a few years now but have never been able to or really tried to master the photo editing process. A friend asked me to take photos at her wedding and i couldn't resist however now i really want to produce some amazing pictures.

    Any suggestions on what to try??
    Will upload some photos soon as i go through them all

    I'd suggest trying to download at the least a free 30 day trial version of Adobe Lightroom.

    Ask your friend to Google wedding images and find the style she likes then try to emulate the processing.

    Thats a really good idea! had a look at a few magazines and other images with her last night and have a pretty good idea. she is looking for very natural gorgeous images. So im felling much more confident now

    awesome! You probablly won't need to spend too much time in Post processing then. Looking forward to some results, if you don't mind sharing.

    Wow-looking forward to seeing the results. My cousin asked me to take photos of her wedding and I did ( sigh) -everyone loved the pictures from the mothers to the groom, except the bride ( tears were involved), need I say more. At least with a relative they still have to speak to you at reunions A few years have gone by and now she looks at them fondly- but in the beginning it was tense. Good luck

    Hi Tania,

    I just want to wish you all the best of luck with this shoot. Just relax and shoot in your own unique style. Do not try to imitate others. You are unique in your own right and if your friend did not like your style of photography she would not have asked you to do it for her.

    Search for a repertoire to follow, on the internet and make sure you get all the important shots.

    Your style will make the photos pop and not Photoshop.
    See if you can find a book "Digital Wedding Photography" by Steve Sint.

    Good luck and looking forward to seeing some of your work.

    Andre

    PS: Have you done any wedding photography before?

    Thank you all for your suggestions! Has been a great help! The wedding was great and I am so very happy with the photos I managed to take it was such a gorgeous day! Working on some stuff in Lightroom this weekend just to tweak it and i will upload a few for debate and criticism (please be gentle). Look forward to hearing what you all have to say!
