A few things to keep in mind...
We prefer working with smart previews, if you're not familiar with them please see 'The Process' section below where we explain how to build them. We don't usually work directly with RAWs as they're very large files and take a long time to transfer.
We also prefer working on Dropbox for file transferring, please reach out to us so we can create your own shared dropbox folder where you can upload all the files and projects you want edited, and we'll upload all the edited projects back. That way we have everything in one place.
What does photo editing include?
It basically includes all the edits that come with a preset and tweaking it throughout the whole gallery: temperature/tint, exposure, contrast, highlight recovery, shadows, black/white clipping, tone curve, saturation/hue/luminance and grain/noise reduction. For more detailed edits like skin retouching, object removal etc, the price varies depending on the complexity of the edits.
Do you crop and straighten?
Yes, we do. We have general rules (horizon level, cut out any distractions from the photo etc) for both but ask for your personal preferences. Some photographers prefer to crop tighter, some have rules about feet being cut off, just let us know!
What is your turnaround time?
We want you to enjoy your photos as soon as possible, that's why we do our best to deliver them as quickly as we can. The turnaround is shorter during the slow season (3-4 days) and longer during the busy wedding season (7-10 days).
How do I send my files?
It's easy! You export your smart previews (See 'The Process' section below), zip up the folder and upload it on Dropbox (we create a shared Dropbox folder for each client, where you will upload your projects and we'll upload the edited versions back).
How does payment work?
We will send a Paypal invoice to you on your email after you receive the edited gallery and are satisfied with the results.
Do you do a trial run?
Yes! We will edit up to 10 photos for free to see if we're a good fit for one another.
(HOW TO BUILD SMART PREVIEWS)
Create a new Lightroom catalog (Lightroom Classic Desktop version, NOT Lightroom CC) and import all the RAW images from the session/wedding that you want us to edit into that catalog.
Go to File -> Export as Catalog -> Name the catalog and pick the folder where you want to export it, and ONLY check the "Build/Include Smart Previews" box, and no other box.
Go to the folder where you exported it, and zip the whole folder and send it to us (upload it in the shared Dropbox folder that we created for you). It should contain the LR catalog itself, and a folder with Smart Previews.lrdata.
