Lightroom Desktop: How to get warm, bright, right, clean colors?

Hello! Does anyone have any suggestions on how to replicate this look?? The look is from Chard Photo's Rich Ladner. I love this style. I want to be able to replicate this in Lightroom for a shoot. How do get bright clean looking photos while also being able to keep it warm. Notice how the whites are still white and not muddy from the temp slider. Also the colors are still vibrant and clean with a nice contrast. Any suggestions?? Any suggestions with a preset also that could get me in the ball park??

Use per-channel curves to warm up the mid-tones and shadows without affecting the highlights as much... or play with the split-tone settings. Or both!

Hi Chance,

One of the best resources I've found to create this look is from wedding photographers Amy & Jordon who have a whole online series on how to do this. Although post processing is part of it, it's actually a much smaller part than you think. I've taken their whole series and it was really quite helpful to learn a style I don't usually do.

I was able to take this photo in NYC using their techniques...

CHARD actually has his own profile/presets now through the company Color Foundry. So you can get his exact look. I picked them up when he first launched them and have really enjoyed :)
