Before and After: Engagement Photos


One of my favorites parts of editing is seeing the image come to life. Enhancing and making the colors pop, removing any unwanted items from the image and creating a beautiful final image. In this blog post Before and After: Engagement Photos, you’ll see how I transformed these RAW images to the final edit.

It all begins with the raw, unfiltered beauty of your original engagement photos. The Seaport District provides a stunning canvas, with its iconic cityscape and waterfront views. Each photo is a snapshot of a special moment frozen in time, but there’s always room for enhancement.


  1. Color Correction: The first step is to enhance the colors to make your photos pop. I carefully adjust the saturation, contrast, and brightness to ensure that every detail shines through, creating a vibrant and visually appealing image. My signature editing is true to color so rather than change the color, I want to give them more life!
  2. Background Enhancements: While the Seaport District is beautiful, there are objects in the background that I don’t want in the final image. Those might be trash cans, other people, umbrellas, a street sign or my sister holding an umbrella over the couple (check out the last photo.) The goal is to accentuate the romantic ambiance without losing the authenticity of the location.
  3. Skin Retouching: Everyone wants to look their best in their engagement photos. My retouching ensures that blemishes are smoothed, skin tones are evened out, and any imperfections are gently corrected, while still preserving the natural beauty of your unique features.

Your engagement is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of love. The Seaport District provides the perfect backdrop for your images. With a sprinkle of digital magic, I bring out the best in your photos, ensuring that each image reflects the beauty of your love story.

When you hire me as your photographer, I take the time to make sure your images are the best they can be! If that’s what your looking for, let’s chat!
