Brightens Special Moments

Vivid Captures. For such a joyous occasion, you would want your photos to equally appear as vivid and cheerful. Colors should pop to exude more life.

To produce this, Elegant Wedding preset increases both exposure and contrast. Compare the couple's attire in the above Before and After photos: there is much more light and color on them now. Also notice how the entire scene has become bright and dazzling.

Adjusts Highlights and Shadows for a Festive Feel

Balanced Tones. Elegant Wedding preset also thoroughly adjusts light and dark hues to complement the boost in exposure and contrast. This helps keep the photo's elements well defined.

In the above After photo for example, you can notice this effect on the bride's bouquet, the trees behind her, the clear blue sky, and the quiet waves.

Softens Black and White Hues

Matte B&W. This particular adjustment produces a stylish matte texture. Elegant Wedding preset mutes whites and softens blacks. This somewhat desaturated look makes the picture look more tender and emotive.

The example photo above is an ideal capture that could have been shot by either the official photographer or a guest. With this sophisticated preset, even a spectator can have professional-looking pictures of a friend's or family's wedding. Try it on your latest wedding pictures (or any social event) and share it on social media like Instagram.

Produces Clear and Crisp Details

Vivid Textures. As with all weddings, couples and organizers pay much attention to the details. There is an intention to every design, setup, and color. The wedding gown, most of all, is often filled with intricate details. The photographer must therefore attempt to capture as much detail as possible, to fill the frame with meaning and emotion.

For this, Elegant Wedding preset amplifies sharpening and clarity to produce well-defined textures. Some vibrance is also added to make these pop. You can see the result in the After photo above: look at how the bride's sleeve now appear more defined, revealing the minute details of the lacework.
