At Lin & Jirsa, we understand that each and every client has a unique style and vision for their wedding and engagement photos. In addition, different styles of wedding venues and wedding decor pair well with different photo editing styles. To accommodate these nuances and style preferences, we offer three primary editing styles. We encourage our clients to choose one of the three styles for their wedding based on the examples and guidance below.
Our signature editing style is warm, vibrant, and bold. This approach makes use of the camera’s full dynamic range and image quality to accentuate the gorgeous hues in photographs that capture awe-inspiring moments, such as blazing sunsets, deep blue waters, or resplendent wedding blooms. This versatile editing style is appropriate for any type of wedding.
Light & Airy Style
The light and airy style of photography is characterized by its soft, pastel hues and a dreamy, filmic vibe. This style creates a romantic, dreamy feel to the images and is most often appropriate for natural light photos. Light and airy pairs well with natural, organic scenes and well as clean backgrounds in soft light.
The primary limitation of this editing style is that the colors in the skies are often blown out, i.e. turned to white, so it may not be the ideal style if you’re seeking vibrant sunsets or bold colors.
Dark & Moody Style
The editing style is known for its deep, rich, organic tones. Often described as bohemian or earthy, this popular style creates a warmer, darker, and moodier feel to the images.
Why do I need to choose the editing style before the shoot?
Editing styles are more than just filters applied to images. The chosen editing style affects how we approach and shoot, which locations we use, what lighting techniques we use and more.
Can I Choose More Than One Editing Style?
To maintain consistency across all of the images and to provide our photo and editing teams with clear style direction, we do not allow multiple editing styles for a single shoot.
What If I Can’t Decide?
If you can’t decide, then we recommend that you talk to our studio management team and our photographers to get advice. Certain editing styles pair well with specific types of scenes and venues, so we can provide further guidance as needed.
Be sure to let our studio management team and your photographer know your preferred editing style in your questionnaire and during your moodboard reviews.
