I had the honour of documenting a wonderful wedding from a good friend of mine (yet another friend who decided to take a chance with me!). This was shot at the end of August and it was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!

As always, any feedback is appreciated! I received a lot of positive responses from when I shot my first wedding so I thought I would share some more of my work with this community! Any suggestions for improvement is always good in my books... growth is good!

If you're interested, there are more photos and a slide show on my blog HERE (external link)! Thanks for looking!

Your processing is pretty much exactly what I aim for! I love it! Could you share a little about how you do your PP? Do you use Lightroom and presets? Really, gorgeous photos!

Thanks! I'd be glad to share my pp'ing!

I use Lightroom and Photoshop. I know, some would call the process long and tedious but I have better control over how my photos turn out in the end... yes, control freak and perfectionist over here! ;)

I load up my RAW files into LR and do all of my colour-correction/white balance stuff there. Adjust exposures as necessary - most of the time, I try to be bang on out of camera but in more difficult lighting conditions, this usually needs adjusting. I have a preset that allows me to add a little zing to the photos set-up:

- tiny curve adjustment (+highlights/-shadows)
- slight boost in clarity/vibrance (but usually NOT saturation)
- slight boost in contrast

The above preset allows me to batch process all my photos real quick.

Then export to PS where I play around with a bunch of actions. I use the Totally Rad Actions pack and Kevin Kubota's Magic Sharp. Seriously, it's been well worth my money in time saved and to have my photos come out the way they do so I can present them to my clients with a WOW! factor. Virtually all of my processing in PS is simply clicking on actions in the action toolbox (some retouching takes a bit of time... 2 minutes max) from start to save. Saves me a lot of time versus digging around in various menus.

Hope that helps you out! :D

Thanks SO much for sharing. I definitely want to look into that Kubota Magic Sharp. I love that sharp look you have!

BTW, how did you find covering a wedding for a really good friend? I am always worried that my friends will try to pull me into the party. :)

Great Work, I love your style. You've captured their moments really well, I'm sure that they will be happy. Really smooth gradients across the board. Do you have a website?

Cheers,
Josh

It was fine shooting for a friend... just make sure you remember you're always on the job until whatever time you have pre-designated with your bride and then let loose afterwards. Even though she was a good friend of mine, contracts and details were all laid out and taken care of long before the wedding day.

I only have a blog set up right now... (link in my sig). I'll eventually get a site set-up but I'm happy with what I've got right now!

Would love to know what actions you used on #4 and #7.
Photos are absolutely amazing.

I didn't use much actually! For both of them, just did the LR process (as stated above) and then used a bit of Boutwell's Magic Glasses at about 40% opacity (Totally Rad Actions set) and Kubota's Magic Sharp in PS.
