The bride's preparation. I like the many hands helping her with her dress.

It was my first time doing wedding photography, i'm very open for critique! Thanks.

I think I might go for a soft focus look since she is a little noisy. You can mask over her with the adjustment brush and pull some clarity out. That will give it a little bit of a dreamy vibe.

Hi!
Thank you for the critique! I tried to apply what you suggested, https://photos.app.goo.gl/Key3ADDeQfHx1PS18

Is it better?

Jacob Szetela's picture

yes. Then I generally also add some additional whites as well so that the clarity doesn't strip it too "flat" looking. Maybe pull down clarity across the whole image. Like a -10 to -20 in Lightroom. just an idea. I really like the composition and the window behind her.

I don't have lightroom, only photoshop + camera raw.
However, I still tried what you suggested! https://photos.app.goo.gl/sKMoh93N2ZQakCrK7
