Bright Wedding is a free Lightroom preset that optimizes light and color in outdoor wedding photos. Every image will turn out bright and festive. All will have a warm yet soft look that's specifically designed to enhance both scenery and the subject's facial expressions. This brightening preset can further be used in various scenarios, from portraiture to outdoor photography. It is the go-to preset if you frequently cover events or take on projects that require a vibrant capture of people and nature.
Unifies Your Photo's Elements with a Soft Warm Hue
Enhances and unifies details. The above photo shows a couple outside a city hall, likely after their civil wedding. There are a lot of details in this image: the bride's dress, her bouquet, the groom's suit, and the ornate entrance of the building. The Bright Wedding preset, as can be seen in the After photo, sharpens these minute details and unifies them elements by infusing a common warm hue. With some tweaks in clarity, these textures pop more and give the photograph a livelier atmosphere.
Sets the Mood of Wedding Photoshoots
Adds warm look and feel. Unlike the first photo, this example has fewer elements and colors, yet it is still rich in texture. This Bright Wedding preset infuses the scene with light, thanks to its tweaks in luminance, whites, and highlights. The original photo is dim and appears to be shot in overcast weather. This is a common problem that outdoor photographers face, and it is what this preset specifically addresses. See how much the After photo is transformed: the sea, sky, and the woman's dress are now in bright warm white. What could have been considered as a dull photograph now gives off a warm and charming afterglow.
Sharpens and Makes Colors Pop
Crisp details and vivid colors. Every coverage of a wedding involves taking photos of event setups, table settings, and clothing. Each item in a wedding has after all been intricately chosen or designed by the celebrants, and is often symbolic of their unique story. It is important to capture these as accurately as possible, from textures to color motifs. They must also somehow exude the intended feel. The Bright Wedding preset makes sure that these colors are as vivid as possible without making them overly saturated. Specific colors have increased luminance and are balanced with slightly desaturated warm hues. Notice how the boosts in sharpening and clarity make the blooms appear crisper and the leaves fresh.
Enhances the Subject's Expressions
Captures emotions. It is vital to keep the focus of portraits and group shots on the faces. Weddings are after all emotional, and the most effective photographs are those that capture various ranges of emotions. This preset thus enhances skin tones and makes sure that images are bright enough to reveal people's expressions. See how enhanced these elements are in the After photo, too: the bridesmaids' faces, hair, dresses, and the balloons. Even their background is now more vivid to complement the atmosphere of the occasion.
Brightens Every Wedding Setup
Warm whites. The Bright Wedding preset has a warm white hue that is similar to an indirect light of a sunny day. It is tender and lively. It is cozy and inviting. This calculated increase in warm temperature is just enough to set the mood and complement the vibrant colors in every setup. Its effect gives an air off anticipation and celebration.
