As a professional wedding photographer for the past 19 years, I have spent an unimaginable amount of time in Lightroom. Learning each of it's amazing features that allow me to adjust images to suit a variety of photography styles. Although I edit my own images to have a bright, classic and clean look... I enjoy editing a variety of styles and working with wedding photographers to maintain a consistent look for their brand.
Editing wedding images is an extremely time consuming part of running your wedding business and often times takes more than 10 hours to complete. Use the freed up time to grow your business OR spend quality, guilt free time with your family and friends. Networking, social media and client care are some of the best ways to grow your business, taking it to the next level.
Unlike a large editing company, working with a private editor means you have the same editor making adjustments to your images for every wedding you send in. This is key because as we work thru your images to fine tune your style, your images will stay consistent wedding to wedding. As a bonus, because I too am a professional photographer, communicating tweaks you'd like are that much easier since I speak your language!
There's no doubting that we are in a world that craves instant gratification! Most often one of the top questions your clients ask is "When will we get to see our photos?" Well, you can easily have your client gallery delivered in just over a week. Once I receive your Lightroom Catalog, I will have your edits back to you within 5-7 business days.
Finding your editing style can be daunting and frustrating not to mention can lead to inconsistent work. Let me help you fine tune your editing style and create consistency thru your images. Consistency in your images creates stunning Instagram feeds, beautiful Pinterest boards and is one of the best ways to find your ideal client. All this is just part of what makes a successful business.
Your camera is smart! You are smarter!! If you want your clients to see consistent skin tones and color when they view their final wedding gallery, you have to tell your camera what you want. Using any white balance setting other than "auto" is key. I use a combination of custom white balance using the ExpoDisc and Kelvin. Even tho the color may be slightly off straight out of camera, each image in that series will have the exact same starting point allowing for similar, if not the exact same adjustments to achieve the same consistent color. When using the "auto" white balance feature, your camera is adjusting the color slightly for every single image which means that every image has a different starting point. And that is the starting point for inconsistency.
Your camera is still smart! But you are still smarter!! Exposure is also a big part of creating consistent images for both your client and your brand. To achieve this you still have to tell your camera what you want. Like most of my white balance, I like to use the ExpoDisc for setting my exposure as well. The ExpoDisc is amazing and so easy when it comes to setting the cameras exposure. When using shutter priority, aperture priority or the full auto mode, your camera is adjusting the exposure for every single image which, again, means that every image has a different starting point for your exposure. And this also is the starting point for inconsistency.
