How to Pick the Right Photo Editing Style

Ideas & Inspiration

Classic v. Rustic

We’re one of the only wedding photography studios in the country that specializes in two unique editing styles. Many couples immediately feel a connection to one style over the other.

The Rustic Collection is deep, dark and bold. It’s known as the “dark and moody” photo editing style.

The Classic Collection is bright, vivid and airy. It’s known as the “light and airy” photo editing style.

But what happens if you’re torn… and love both?

We hope this helps you understand the differences between our Classic and Rustic Collections.

Examples of Classic versus Rustic editing techniques on the exact same photo

The Rustic Collection looks great with brick walls, steel beams, exposed wood, urban settings, industrial interiors and other warm tones.

The Classic Collection was designed for garden, outdoor and bright environments. It’s known as the “light and airy” editing style, which resembles its roots as a film look. The Rustic style will look fantastic in outdoor settings, although you’ll get a darker, bolder and deeper feeling to the images.

In some settings, the Classic and Rustic Collection can look fairly similar. When the light outside is cloudy or moodier, even the Classic Collection style will resembles darker, moodier and bolder colors. There’s still no question that the Rustic Collection emphasizes those darker hues. It really brings out the reds and browns in the surrounding buildings!
