Professional Wedding Colour Photography

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with MastinLabs and receive no profit from mentioning and reviewing briefly its colour emulsions.

In reaching and fulfilling the highest expectations of nowadays wedding photography demands there’s no shortage of products available for photographers. Whether colour or black and white, paid or not, there are hundreds of film emulsions, presets, techniques and settings one could experiment with. And I have tried many. I mean, a lot of them. Too many in fact as I always knew what “look” I am after and what my clients are after. If you’re one of those who happen to just jump into wedding photography or have photographed for a while you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say/quote ” … that dreamy, toned colour yet rustic look one can see in magazines, you know the fashion yet reportage style…” - as quoted by one of the brides I spoke to. Yup, we’ve all been there and I feel my search is over. It has in fact been over for quite some time though I write this entry only now… The film emulsions offered by Mastin Labs are simply no match to whatever wedding scenario. The set below is for colour only as for black and white I am sticking to files produced by my much beloved Fuji X-Pro2 system though those are also on offer. Speaking of an offer, there’s a 40% discount at the moment which is highly recommended to try if you have been thinking for a while. They’re worth every penny and I know I’m done when it comes to that restless times of “finding” that “look”. Thank you Kirk Mastin for the excellent work you’ve provided, the time saved has been devoted to writing and putting together this entry:) 

The shots below have been edited with a selection of colour presets in Lightroom including Fuji Pro and Kodak Portra packs.

And if you’re struggling with the choice look here for additional guidance put together by the lab.
