You became a photographer because you love capturing precious moments from behind the camera, so what are you doing spending hours behind the computer??
We believe there is more to life than work, which is why we've spent the last 5 years helping photographers get their time back. With less time spent editing images, you'll have more time to invest into growing your business and spend with loved ones.
Even though we operate as a team, we fully believe that the BEST part about working with a private editor is getting a one-on-one experience. Because of this, you will be matched with your own personal editor who you will work with exclusively. Unlike big box companies, you will have one person editing all of your catalogs, which guarantees consistency.
Whether you need portrait editing, wedding editing, or culling, our dynamic team of editors will be able to accommodate your outsourcing needs.
Let’s be honest, You became a photographer because you love capturing precious moments from behind the camera, so what are you doing spending hours behind the computer?? Outsourcing to a private editor allows you to take on more shooting jobs, which not only means more income, but also more shooting time! A survey conducted by Casey Fatchett Photography revealed that 53% of wedding photographers spend eight hours or more on editing. Eight hours for fifteen weddings (on average) a year is equal to five 24-hour days you could be spending doing other things — like taking a vacation! Not only do you alleviate yourself from doing a chore you find tedious, but you are handing it over to an expert.
The biggest issue my clients have experienced with large editing companies is inconsistency in their edits. When you outsource to a large editing company, you could have multiple people working through a single catalog. Not only that, but the group of people working on each catalog you send will be different every time. This causes inconsistent editing, which will result in more of your time spent trying to fix the images. When you work with a private editor, you know who is working on every catalog and you have direct line of communication with the person working on your images. If any of your catalogs have inconsistencies, you can let your editor know what changes they need to make in order to maintain a consistent style.
Time after time, I have seen photographers get behind on editing. They’re overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do to complete a wedding gallery, so they put it off until they’re having to rush to deliver it within the very last week of the promised turnaround time. One of my main goals is to help you provide a better client experience for your couples. When we work together, we will establish the perfect schedule for you that will help keep delivery times short. My average turnaround time for catalogs is 4 - 6 business days, so you will be able to get galleries back to your clients quickly! You’ll never have to worry about falling behind again!
Take a look at your business… We all know that it’s not just the 12-17 wedding days (on average) that you’re working. You’re also meeting with clients, photographing engagement sessions, editing all of your galleries, marketing your business, etc. Running a business can take a toll on anyone, don’t let it take a toll on your personal life, family or friends!
It all starts with a Zoom call! Meeting face-to-face with our clients helps us to get to know each other better and hopefully relieves any fears you might have about outsourcing! We go over the entire process from start to finish. We will also talk about your editing style, how to prepare your catalogs and transfer files, set up an editing schedule, and go over any questions you have! If we both feel that we will be a great fit, I will send you a quick questionnaire to fill out before we start working together! If we don’t feel we will be a great fit, or if you are looking for something different, I will work with you to find another editor that will be your perfect match!
I honestly don’t know what I’d do without Emily! She is so detail oriented, quick, and easy to work with. She allows me to serve my clients so well, while also allowing me to have a life outside of editing. I am so thankful I found her and can’t imagine anyone better to trust with my editing!
She is incredibly dependable, professional, AMAZING at what she does, and she saves me so much time and headache. My business would not be the same without her. I've worked with her for years now, and can't imagine using anyone else- that's how crucial she is to my business! I have time with my family, and time to move the needle on things that bring me joy in my business thanks to Emily.
There are so many words we could write to you about Emily and how she has changed our business for the better. Emily, not only is an amazing business woman, but she also has become a part of our family. She is encouraging, so sweet, & helpful whenever we are in a crunch. Not only has she felt like a part of our family, she has given us time back to spend with our family.
Our average turnaround time is 4-6 business days. During slower seasons, we will frequently get catalogs delivered faster than that. During busier seasons, there's a chance that catalogs may be delayed by 1-2 business days. We will always let you know ahead of time if a catalog is going to be delayed!
Yes! All of our clients must use the most updated version of Adobe Lightroom Classic. This is the most current version of Lightroom. By using the same program, we are reducing the risk of any errors or issues with catalog transfers.
We strive to make sure you are absolutely happy with your edits, which is why we provide up to 3 adjustments per image at no additional cost to you. Just let your editor know upon delivery what changes they need to make to the catalog.
No, we do not require a minimum amount of sessions or weddings. However, if you give us dates of sessions/weddings that you plan to deliver to us and fail to deliver 3 in a row without any communication, we will no longer hold your spot for editing.
We do have a contract, however, either party may exit the contract at any time with written notice. This means if you give us a try and decide that we are not a good fit, you can let us know and we will help you find another editor who is going to be a perfect fit for you!
We understand that outsourcing your photo editing is
a scary thing. However, every catalog we receive is carefully edited to match each photographer's unique editing style. Because of this, we don't feel a portfolio would give you the best representation of the services we can provide you.
We currently provide basic editing in Adobe Lightroom. Basic edits include exposure, contrast (highlights, shadows, whites, blacks), white balance, clarity vibrance, saturation, cropping/straightening, chromatic aberration, profile corrections, and black and white conversion.
We do not currently offer rushed catalog delivery at this time. In order to assure that you are receiving the highest quality of work and to keep our turnaround times at a minimum, catalogs are frequently completed in the order they are received.
