Love this image. I was driving to a reception venue and noticed a little farmer’s field with a little open gate. I was in front of the limo so I singled and pulled over into the shoulder and asked the couple if I could have 5 minutes with them for a little shoot in the field. One of the shots that I loved from the set was the one below.
In post-processing I wanted to add some layers to give it a different look.
I added some texture by to the image by adding some shots of swirling grass that you can see in between their heads and on the right of her head. I took out the grass that overlapped her head since what woman would want swirly lines on her face. I added some pictures of a sidewalk concrete on his shoulder and it’s tinted red. I added some blur to take away from him so your eyes concentrate on her more. I added a bit of a “vintage” feel through the image with the tones.
Here is what I was working with before the edits below:
For me… I’m always in love with this image for some reason. Such a happy couple. I do remember the grooms Mom didn’t like it since I cut him off on purpose. The shot was more with her than him.
