When marrying in a hot setting such as Italy, it’s always tempting to soak up the sun in the days before your wedding.A healthy, sun-kissed hue can look very attractive and appealing.However, too much of a tan can look a little unnatural, especially when you look through your wedding photographs at a later date…particularly for a bride, dressed in white, ivory or another very pale shade that can exaggerate the depth of your sun tan.

As for tan lines  the enemy of strapless dresses  as the digital retouching guide on our website explains, nowadays, retouching software and techniques allow photographers to edit, enhance, correct and manipulate images.

So, you would, quite rightly, think that removing a bathing strap mark or tan line, wouldn’t be such a problem, alas that’s not always the case.

Lines and marks can offer differ greatly from the tanned areas surrounding them and retouching these areas to the same colour as your tan can create a very unnatural finish.

Our recommendation would always be that natural is best, so to try to avoid strap marks and tan lines where possible and where not we will create as natural and even a finish as possible!

So, to tan or not to tan…as usual there’s no right answer, just one piece of advice…

everything in moderation!
