Jacki the beautiful bride in this photo,
“The colors came out beautiful!”
I agree with Jacki. Her color palette was bright, happy and a nod to late summer, almost fall. I’m glad she sees her vision realized in these photos.
#nofilter is a phrase born out of instagramming. I’m not against applying filters to iphone snapshots (filter examples). Sometimes iphone images lack contrast, look dull, exposure is off, etc… and rather than post a lack luster image it can add a little pizazz without needing special editing software. Wedding photos are different, to me at least. I have the ability to control exposure, use light in a sophisticated way and edit the photos in a clean and simply. The specialness of the image comes from the rich content in the photo. The editing shouldn’t overshadow the awesomeness that was already there.
I do this for a few reasons:
- When you’re planning your wedding you carefully select all the colors that make up the day. Who am I to give you photos that are anything but the colors that were there?
- Why add a yellow, grainy, dingy filter over such pretty scenes? I’m not trying to make my images look like they were shot 80 years ago.
- It’s simply easier for me to shoot and deliver photos just as you’d remember them. A crisp, blue sky looks crisp and blue. It just takes extra steps to change reality.
I’m still a few weeks away from sharing the complete set of images from this wedding. To see these and more from a wedding that featured National Anthem singer for the Boston Bruins Rene Rancourt, visit & LIKE my Facebook page!
Huge thanks to Karla Cassidy Designs for helping me to demonstrate the beauty in floral (& pumpkin) design and seeing the wedding vision through in photos.
