Lightroom Presets – Wedding Fairytale Glow
Happy Monday Lightroom peeps (that’s hip slang for “people” which I’m not sure even makes sense 😉 )
Before I get to the presets, I’m starting a 5 city tour of the “Lightroom 3 Live” 1-day seminar this week (Phoenix, Indianaplolis, Tampa, Arlington, and Philadelphia). Make sure you’re following me on Google+ and keep and eye out here as I’ll be giving away some tickets to the seminar.
Now for the presets. Here’s an update and an extra version to a preset I released a while back. I see a lot in family portraits and wedding/engagement photos. There’s two versions: one with a dark edge vignette and one iwth a bright edge vignette (last time I only released the dark edge preset). I find it works best on portraits and photos that tend to be brighter in nature (notice the sky is blown out in the before version already). But give it a try on anything because I’ve seen it work great on close up portraits as well. That’s the cool thing about presets – they’re easy to try and easy to undo if you don’t like it. Let me know what you think.
1) Unzip the preset zip file on to your desktop
2) Go to the Develop module. NOTE: YOU MUST BE THE DEVELOP MODULE
3) Go to the Presets panel on the left. Right click anywhere in it and choose Import.
4) Select the .lrtemplate files you unzipped in Step 1 and click Import NOTE: DO NOT IMPORT THE ZIP FILE

I’m on the wrong continent for the seminar but just wanted to say thank you for another great set of presets. I was struggling with a set of pictures and these presets are perfect for them. Great work.
Cool, Matt. Thanks. I’m doing a couple new-baby shoots coming up, and this one might look nice on a few of the shots. Have a good one, pal.
Thanks for the presets, Matt!
I like this preset Matt! Very cool…thanks for the freebie! Here is a shot of it in use.
I would like to enter your giveaway for a ticket for your Indianapolis show, Please.
Love to be at the one in Arlington Texas…
I am signed up for Indy. Already talked one friend to attend as well. Could certainly get another to attend as well.
I’d be thrilled to get the ticket for the Indianapolis session!
I would love to have the opportunity to attend your Lightroom 3 workshop in PHILADELPHIA, PA. Even thought it will be a 4-5 hrs drive from Virginia, it will be well worth it.
Hi Matt, would absolutely love to be part of this seminar in Arlington, TX..Im a newbie to the field and still in school, would greatly benefit from this workshop, thanks a bunch:)
I am already attending your Phoenix Seminar tomorrow but I would love the tickets to allow a couple of my poverty stricken photography friends to go and share the experience with me

Matt, thanks again for letting us enjoy your passion for these pre-sets.
It surely helps as a starting point on so many occasions.
Thanks again, buddy!

If I attend in Philly I’ll buy you a cheesesteak. Yeah it’s a bribe for a free ticket!
I would love to win a ticket to the Arlington, TX class.
Thank you sooooooo much. I haven’t tried this preset yet, but I’m awfully impatient to try it. I’m very excited with anticipation. Sarah

Thanks a ton!
I love all your presets! Thank you so much for sharing!!
Thanks Mat. I like the presets.
Thanks Matt. Great work as usual.
You are an absolute legend, thanks so so much for these, I was a back-up photographer at a wedding for the first time last weekend and have been struggling to get the look and feel that I really want on a few images, these presets have hit the nail on the head big time.
Thanks for sharing Matt, nice job.
Thanks for the presets. 🙂
Oh, oh, oh this will be one of my most favorite presents. THANK YOU!
any tickets for phoenix??
would love to go
Gonna check them out Matt, thank you “:0}…
Keep doing what you do we appreciate it.
Thanks Matt! Always appreciated. I find that many of the wedding presets work well with baby photos (and vice versa).
