Once the confetti has blown away, the champagne glasses have been drained and the honeymoon is about to begin. Here at David Tynan Wedding Photography I begin with very soon to start editing the Photographs. This is always a very exciting process for me to finally see on a big screen the images of the days ceremony. More often than not when I shoot a wedding I will capture anywhere up to 1500 – 2000 images in a day. Once you take into account that the vast majority of these images will look very similar in style and composition, people blinking or simply just not working I edit this number to the region of around 3-400. I am a great believer in style over content and most certainly less is definitely more.
Story of the day
I always believe in a narrative , showing the story of the day naturally unfolding. From the bride and groom getting prepared in the morning, the ceremony as well as the all important shots of the guests having a late night boogie, all of this shows a different chapter of the wedding day. I enjoy weaving the ebb and flow of the edit to reflect this and hopefully capturing the atmosphere and essence of the day along the way.
A few weeks after the big day I then send an online link to the couple who can see the images in their full glory. These online galleries can also be sent to friends and family as well as being responsive to being shared on social media. It is around this time that my couples choose there selection of images to be included in the bespoke Wedding book. I use a fantastic company who print the books called Blurb who go beyond the call of duty making the look and feel just right. I then personally design the look and feel of the book with full collaboration with the happy couple every step of the way sending a pdf of each draft until they are happy to sign it off before they go to print. These really are works of Art in their own right and no two are ever the same.
