Matte images will offer a feel that a slightly hazy filter is applied to the image. In this type of editing, the image might look soft and not very sharp. In addition, this type of image does not translate well when changed to the printed format.
Bright, Light, and Airy Images
Bright and airy images provide a sense of natural and clean editing to the viewer. These images will have lots of emotions and can make the viewer happy. In this type of wedding image editing, the photos will look really clean and natural.
Dark and Moody
Dark and moody editing is a comparatively recent trend in wedding photography. It has become popular real quick as these images can look very romantic and provide a cinematic feel to it. In this type of editing, there will be more saturation in some parts compared to others, making some skin tones looks a bit unnatural.
In the de-saturated style of image editing all then colors in the image will look muted, meaning that the bright colors like green or red will be toned down to make them appear less bright. In addition, overall de-saturation of the images makes the skin color look washed out and muted. This style has become much popular these days. In this type of wedding image editing, it is very common for the bright green outdoor foliage to be toned down.
By definition, high dynamic range editing works really well with images of nature and landscapes. HDR editing brings out the bright colors to make images of landscapes pop. However, this type of editing is not suitable for all types of photography. Therefore, it is wise to tone down the contrast and colors while using HDR editing in wedding images.
