Tips on How to Retouch Wedding Photos

The way a wedding photo is edited is one way to stand out. There are certainly many different styles of editing wedding photos. Here are some simple ways you can retouch your wedding photography with Photoshop:


  1. Highlight the eyes.

Enhance the eyes with a little extra color and contrast. You can do this with the Radial filter. Simply create an ellipse over the iris and use a brush to erase parts as necessary, increase the saturation, clarity, and exposure until it looks perfect.

Remember to darken the edges of the iris before you’re finished working. You can do this by holding down Ctrl/Cmd and Alt and moving the pin slightly to make a copy, and then lower the exposure until the iris is darker.

  1. Remove any Hotspots.

You can fix these issues with the Patch tool in Photoshop. The Patch tool allows you to draw rough borders around hot spots, and then drag them to a clear area. Once the area is removed, you can lower the opacity so that the highlight only shows through a small amount.

  1. Soften the skin.

You can retouch those fine lines and blemishes on your pictures using Photoshop’s spot healing brush, or the clone stamp tool. Just remember not to go overboard. Duplicate your layer, or merge a new layer, and then invert the layer with Ctrl/Cmd and I.

You can visit the layers panel after this and shift down the opacity of the layer while switching to the Linear Light blend mode. Right click on the layer and go to Filter then click on the Gaussian Blur option for a magazine-ready look.

  1. Sharpen if needed.

Click into the Channels panel and click on the red panel, then go into your Filters and click on Sharpen. After that, you can select the Unsharp mask and fiddle with the settings available until you’ve got a result that matches the resolution of your image. Click back on the RGB channel to see the results of your work.

  1. Burn and Dodge the details.

Just click on the Create new layer icon while holding the Alt key to bring up your layer options. Layer whatever is necessary; for this is where you will be doing the dodging and burning.

On the invisible layer, you can paint black or white on the space to either lighten or add contrast to the skin. Remember to set the brush tool opacity to no more than 10%, and then simply paint over the parts of the space where you want to add extra depth.

How long does it take to edit Wedding Photos?

The time it takes to get your wedding photos will vary depending on the photographer, their schedule and also how many photos are in need of editing and or retouching.

If you are having an album created too then this will take additional time too, once the photos have been edited they then need to be ordered and edited down to fit into an album, telling a story of your day and highlighting key moments and have the best selection of photos in there, once done it then needs to be sent away for printing too.


In editing and retouching bulk wedding photos, usually, it will take approximately 4 days to successfully complete the editing process of every wedding photo you have. In every 50 photos, it would take up to 1hour. If it is a simple matter of culling the images to get rid of the blinkers and focus shots then it will take an hour or two.


If they all need a color correction or the like then it is a bit longer and if they need more “extensive” work doing then it can take days.

How Do Photographers Edit Wedding Photos?

As a photo editing service, we provide pro wedding photographers with fast, personalized, and consistent editing services. Below are some helpful tips on how to professionally edit wedding photos:

  1. Cropping

Whether it’s an action shot where the composition is highly off balance or a group portrait shot that just needs a little tweaking, photo cropping is one of the most basic tools in your photo editing arsenal. It is also fashionable to crop into a square 1:1 aspect ratio.

  1. Eliminate Noise

“Noise” refers to tiny random fuzzy specks on photos taken in low-light. It distracts from the foreground, focus and overall effect of the image. Photo fixing and photo editing can easily reduce or eliminate the noise that’s lowering the quality of your wedding pictures.

  1. Brighten Up and Optimize the Contrast

The brightness level is another important consideration when editing your wedding photos. By analyzing the photo and automatically calculating what amount of brightness to let through its filters. Optimizing the levels of contrast is like adjusting brightness or exposure in your wedding photos.

  1. Fix flaws with Clone Tool

The appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, and shadows can reduce the quality of your wedding photos. Using professional, automated photo editing software can help to eliminate the guesswork of photo fixing so that you get consistent and beautiful results every time.

  1. Color Vibrancy

Color levels determine if your photos “pop” with life, or are presented as a dull image as if you have a silt veil across your lens. Fortunately, photo editing software can make it easy to adjust the color balance in your wedding photos.

  1. Dodge and Burn

These tools offer subtle ways to refine your photos and make them the very best images possible. Dodging refers to nudging out more highlights and light areas in the photos, while burning allows you to bring out more data and detail from areas that may have become too light or washed out.

  1. Fix the blurriness with the Sharpness Tool

The sharpness tool can help you to salvage what would otherwise be throwaway images. Take care not to over sharpen, through, or images can start to look unnatural or even cartoon-like.


Photo editing requires a steady hand and a fair amount of knowledge and experience in all of the areas described above and more. There are no shortcuts to experience and a good eye. Fortunately, our Company offers the finest work when it comes to retouching and
