Step-by-step tutorial for converting wedding images to romantic in Photoshop

In this article, we will teach you how to edit different images in a dream mode in Photoshop. Our example in this tutorial is a wedding image.

1- How to create a mountain landscape

Step 1

Create a new document. My final dimensions will be 1920 x 1424 pixels.

Copy and paste the mountain landscape image onto a new layer. Adjust its size using the Free Transform (Control-T) tool to make it slightly smaller. This helps us to create more depth.

Place the image on the document as shown below.

Step 2

We continue to build the landscape!

Now we need the bottom of the image. Copy and paste another part of the mountain landscape onto a new layer below the first layer. In this step you can use a quick selection tool such as Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) .

Select the lower left part because in this part we have to create a narrow and smooth path (path) to place the bride and groom.

How Your Wedding Photography Editing Style Affects Your Business

Your wedding photo editing style is one of the main ways you can stand out. And clients will pick a wedding photographer based on their photography style. This includes editing.

There are certainly many different styles of editing wedding photos. Trust me when I say that there is a clientele and market for almost any type of wedding photography.

Some styles are what I call evergreen. Natural looking wedding photos which feature bright and clean editing, for example.
Dark and moody, HDR processed, special effects and sepia tones are temporary trends.

The style of wedding photography you choose depends on what you want your work to show. And the type of clients you want to attract.

When you are starting out, it is very tempting to pick a popular trend of wedding photo editing. It might seem like couples are gravitating towards that particular style.

You might think it’ll make potential clients more likely to book your services. I encourage you to think long term business goals for a moment.

Wedding photos last for generations. I still have my parents’ wedding photos in my study. And I love looking at old family wedding photos. They’re a way to connect with my family who are no longer around.

People want to be able to identify features and colours. They want images that offer a true depiction of the actual events. They don’t want editing influencing the mood or tone of an image.
