Here’s an update to some older presets. See, I’m always dissecting “looks” that I find in photos, and I’ve seen this one for a while now. I named it Wedding Day because that’s mostly what I see the effect used on – wedding photos shot outdoors in the afternoon. It’s got a very subtle warm-reddish look to it with a slight vignette. After playing with a bunch of sliders, I settled upon some white balance changes as well as some changes in the Split Toning panel. It’s also got some changes to Vibrance and Saturation for a slightly desaturated look. It sounds like a lot, but I think the effect is pretty subtle overall (at least compared to some of my other presets). Also, while it’s named Wedding Day, you’ll see in the sample below that it works just fine on non-couple photos too
Once you apply it, you can tweak the look by changing your Tint and Temperature sliders (move Tint to the right for more red). And of course the overall Exposure will change the look too. I find it works well with a slightly darker overall exposure and if your photo isn’t too warm to start with (if it’s already a warm photo, the preset tends to make the skin too red – in which case, just move Temp/Tint sliders to the left).
Here’s a few samples.
- The preset downloads for Lightroom Classic CC and are in the new XMP format. They’re meant for Lightroom but will also work in the latest version of Adobe Camera Raw.

Hope you enjoy. Have a good one!
There is a very simple and convenient way to convert XMP to Lrtemplate. I use this program to convert:
Open xmp as notepad and copy paste everything inside of it, and convert!
just import that file and light room will automatically convert that to XMP file 🙂
I get an error when I try to import. “The preset was the wrong type of preset file.” Using Lightroom 5.6
I am watching your stuff over on KelbyOne!!! You truly are gifted! KEEP TEACHING! and shout out next time you are in phoenix! I’d love to attend a seminar!

Just found your page. I think I’ll be coming back here for some time. Super stuff
I want to start wedding photography and need some presets and yours look awesome
Hi. I Have lightroom 5 and I have tried downloading your free wedding day presents. It unzips as a template not as presets.
Got any ideas?
Thank you very much!
Matt- Thanks for the many updates to your presets. To help me distinguish the new ones for LR4 from your previous ones, I’ve been adding the suffix “LR4” to your zip file and then again to the folder name into which I upload the preset in Lightroom. This helps me distinguish them from older, pre-2012 Process presets, and, will help in the future when Adobe updates the Camera Calibration Process to the next version.
