Avoid Tan Lines

Tan lines are very tricky to get rid of in Photoshop. They curve around the shoulders in such a way that it makes the process time consuming. So, I usually will only work on the ones where they are glaringly obvious and important.

There are a few things you can do to avoid tan lines:

  • Use sunblock, lots of it. Or, stay out of the sun… but who really wants to do that!
  • Make sure your swimsuit has the same cut as the wedding dress. This way you can tan and it won’t be obvious. :)
  • Take a bronzing powder with you just in case. Bronzing powders won’t actually change the color of your skin… it’s more like a base that will match the tan lines to the surrounding area.

There you have it! A few simple things you can do to make your photographer’s life a little bit easier and s/he will love you for it.

Diane and Greg - Shortest wedding ever

Wow! This has to be the shortest wedding I’ve ever shot. The first image of Diane is at 5:05pm with 35sec and the last image of the ceremony was at 5:08pm with 1sec. To keep the wedding short they got straight to it… a poem, the vows and the kiss. Voila! Total ceremony time: 3min 34sec.

Diana y Juan - San Jose

I’m always flattered and excited when photographers hire me for their wedding. Diana is a photographer and so it was really important for her that the pictures weren’t short of spectacular. I was delighted to discover she had the church and ballroom painted with light.
