Is this killing your bridal detail photos? Here are 3 solutions!

Have you ever wondered why bridal details sometimes have a strange tint to them?! Me too! I would shoot all the bridal details with natural light, load them into the computer, and then I would see it - the pink/purple/orange/red/green tint! Or maybe you have even noticed it when you're taking an iPhone photo! The problem is that our surrounding elements are discoloring the details! This could be from the grass, an orange wall in a hotel, or even our clothesYes, you heard me right! The most common way to introduce discoloration into your bridal detail images is with your CLOTHES!

Wear something neutral! - I'm a fan of wearing something neutral during the winter months! But what about when you want to wear that lovely blouse with the pink scarf?!

Use a reflector - If you're wearing something colorful (or if you're standing by a big green wall), use the reflector to either block the color source or reflect white light!

Pull it out in post - It happens to the best of us! We get distracted with a tight timeline and we forget that our plum-colored skirt is throwing color into our shot! If this happens, go into Lightroom and pull our the unwanted color (Develop -> HSL).

I made a free preset for you!
