Wedding Lightroom Presets are ideal because wedding photography demands so much out of you as a photographer.
You have a long list of ‘must have’ shots you need to take. There’s usually a badly lit venue to deal with. You hope and pray that the weather will hold long enough to get in some outdoor shots.
And of course, you’ve gotta cross your fingers that none of your equipment malfunctions (or breathe a sigh of relief if you remembered to pack a backup.)
Emotions run high. You work hours without a break (and probably can’t stop for a bite to eat either.) And you might even have to deal with family drama at some point during the big day.
Then, after it’s all over, the REAL work begins.
Editing hundreds of wedding photos!
Wedding Lightroom Presets Save the Day!
When you have a bride and groom anxious to share photos of their big day (and that’s all of them!) you need a fast, efficient editing process.
Sometimes, you’ll even get asked for social media ready images while the reception is still going on.
Fortunately, for wedding photographers everywhere, Wedding Lightroom Presets save hours of precious editing time.
A good preset does the ‘grunt work’ of photo editing (basic slider adjustments) with a single click.
What are Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom Presets are predetermined positions for the slider adjustments in Lightroom (exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast, vibrance, saturation, etc.)
In fact, you can think of presets as ‘recipes’ for editing photos a specific way to create certain looks.
Just like following a recipe produces a specific, repeatable result, so does applying a Lightroom Preset to a photo.
An example is the desaturated look that’s so popular for weddings right now.
If your clients asks for their wedding photos to be edited in a certain style like the one above, simply apply a corresponding Preset to your photos to recreate the look.
Presets not only lets you edit hundreds of photos in bulk, they also create a consistent look through all of your photos.
