Beyond Point and Click l Puyallup Wedding Photographer Post Production

BEFORE

know what you are getting

One of the most important things you can do before you hire your wedding photographer is to ask about his post production experience.  What are you looking for?  If you don’t know, make sure you ask lots of questions when you review portfolios.   What comes with your package?  Make sure you know before you sign your contract.

candidly speaking

When shooting candids the intent is to capture the fleeting moment – which means you sometimes get the wall outlet and power chord in your shot too.   At Firstlight Photography all of our images receive the basic color and exposure corrections but we also do a lot of other editing you might not notice (which means we have done our job).  Aside from aesthetic changes, see if you can find the missing objects in the AFTER image.  In addition to “erasing” several objects, the post production work involved a layering, vignette and other techniques that we like to experiment with for that perfect album photo or canvas print.

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
