Retouching 101

Ever since we started up a few years ago, Rachel and I have always put a big emphasis on the retouching aspect of what we do. We are of course photographers, but for us a lot of the fun and excitement of what we do starts after the shutter is clicked. The post-production that we put into all of our wedding and session images is really as important as anything else we do, and no final product is complete without it!

We include retouching with every session we do, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! The world of digital photography enables us to take awesome images and make them amazing, and this is something we’ve used in the process of crafting our own style of images. All the prints we do, whether they be 4x6s or spreads for your storybook, always get a little extra love from us, and it always results in an gorgeous finished piece.

We’ve been meaning to post a few before and after shots illustrating what we do to finish our images, so what better time to do that than now?

Here we have the always lovely Ryan and Becky (some of you may be sick of them already, haha) in a simple portrait. Good picture right of the camera, though with a few slight color and contrast tweaks, as well as a few other slight modifications, we the new and improved version below…

This is one of my favorite images of Megan and Eddie’s engagement session this past fall. I love Megan’s smile, and the shot looks pretty decent out of the camera. There’s a little backlighting going on, so the shot is slightly hazy. Let’s see it after a little TLC…

Here is a beautiful shot of Amanda from last May. She looks amazing, and I really love the lighting. This one looks awesome straight out of camera, but just some minor tweaks really finishes this one off nicely…

This is definitely one of my all time favorite engagement shots from the past few years. Justin and Lauren were one of the first couples we worked with after we got started with our business, and they were the first couple we did an engagement shoot with. This image looks o.k. straight out of the camera, but the bright sun made some pretty dark shadows going over their faces. When we do a snappy black and white conversion, this one really comes alive…

Last but not least we have beautiful bride Nicole from last June. This is a gorgeous shot taken by Rachel, and it looks really nice without anything done to it. When we take the image and really spice it up, we get an awesome bridal portrait Linczak style…

Hopefully this shows a little more of what goes into each image we create, and how the whole process leads to a stunning finished final product once we are finished!
