Happy new year everyone! Life as a wedding photographer doesn't seem to stop as I was right back to it on the 4th at an amazing wedding. Things are looking good to have a small(ish) break soon so I can update my website, put in the new wedding photography package and hopefully make some nice new refurbishments on the studio :D
My editing schedule has actually reduced significantly now. Only a few hours ago finishing the photographs from my last wedding. It means for the first time in around 9 months I'm actually up to date!!!!!! (until the weekend).
I had only one night of partying over Christmas and it became apparent I am not used to it. A combination of an intolerance to alcohol and food, the freezing cold weather and a hectic, never ending schedule has got me pretty run down with flu at the moment. Hopefully I'll be getting over it tomorrow ready for events this weekend. Looking through Skye and Marks sun-blessed wedding I'm feeling a little better already.
Skye and Mark had their wedding in Shropshire with their reception at a lovely little restaurant in the middle of Shrewsbury. This meant we had an amazing opportunity to explore a historical and interesting town where we found some cool colours to play with.
Skye and Marks wedding sparked a slight change in the editing style last year. I know I changed my editing style on this wedding because the action I created for it is still called "Skyemark". It has a lot more teal tones and a little more push in the whites while moving away form fades. The style stays pretty similar to this right up until December this year.
I've recently found the beauty and ease of lightroom 5 and for the lower light of the winter months I'm trying lightroom with a little bit of a dim curves fade and no colour tones. I may add a little colour to future edits but at the moment I'm loving the fade style of photographic editing in wedding photography.
Enough of the photography geek talk. To see some pretty photographs of a really pretty couple, take a look at these guys below. I've gone a bit crazy with the highlights. Usually I'd only show around 50 images from a wedding normally but as it's the new year I think there's around 100.
