Retouching your Wedding Photos after the big day
Improving your Wedding Day photographs
So, you get the photos back from your big day and they are great, but not quite perfect. The photographer has some fantastic skills, the day was perfect but there is just something not quite right. Have you considered having the images digitally altered to make them exactly how you want?
Professional photo editing can make any photo just how you want it and the results can be so natural nobody has to know but you.
Some common requests for retouching include:
This is the most common request, probably because it is the most common problem – you wake up in the morning to find a spot has appeared that not even make-up can conceal.
A professional digital artist can very easily and cheaply remove the offending spot and leave completely unblemished skin.
Airbrushing does not have to look fake, professional natural airbrushing should just remove blemishes, smooth wrinkles, improve skin tone, remove under eye bags, creases etc. Airbrushing can knock years off of a person and look completely natural
The second most common problem, there are always people watching weddings who may not be anything to do with you or your family – you get out of your wedding car and a few people appear in the background ruining an otherwise perfect photo.
Professional artists will be able to airbrush them out, replacing them with seamless background and improving your photo.
A slightly more expensive art but can give excellent results. Wedding dresses can be tough on saggy bits and skin creasing – a digital artist should be able to provide slimming of arms, tummy area, uplifting of bums and chests and much more to make you look your best
Lighting and colour
Even a great photo can often use a bit of tweaking to get the best out of it. Top artists should be able to manipulate the colour and lighting to provide real depth and improvement to any image
Image effects and joining
So, you get a great shot of you and your new bride or groom, but the best photo of the best man is without you two there.... No problem! An experienced digital artist can superimpose the best man onto your shot as if he was't
