Our entire process is centered around you and your art. We want to support you in the best way possible and deliver images that you’re proud to show off. Everything is customized to your preferences, and you’ll never pay for anything you’re unhappy with.
Our editing process is completely centred around your vision. First, we start with a conversation. We want to get to know you, hear your story, listen to your expectations, and see how we can support you best.
After that, we’ll start talking about the specific details of how you want your images to look. Whether you’ve got an established style, or you want to develop something new together, we’re on board with your vision. We’ll get a full session from you, and go back and forth on revisions until we’re both confident in the final look for the images. Typically, we give this process a couple of weeks to initially get started, and then it may take a few sessions to achieve 100% perfection (but we’ll get there!).
During this process, you’ll work with one member of our team who will be your personal editor (consider them part of your team). Their understanding of who you are, how you communicate, and what you like to see will be key to ensuring the same results, again and again.
In our process, everything is included. We work in Adobe Lightroom, but we also work with Alien Skin Exposure, Photoshop, Camera Raw, and more. Whatever you do to achieve the look you want, we’ll make that happen for you!
Designing an album for a wedding, engagement or family session is really a deeply emotional and storytelling process. It’s not something that can be boiled down to simple templates, with no care given to the story in the images. For that reason, our process is completely driven by story. We take great care to understand how you’ve tried to portray that in your images.
Practically, this means that we design every album from scratch. It also means that we incorporate your personal style, and how you like your albums to look. And because we believe in making things easy for you, we include unlimited revisions to the design in our simple flat rate price. We also work with any album company, size, or process that you use.
We manage the whole proofing process using Album Exposure, which allows us to stay behind the scenes, and makes it simple for your clients to give feedback on the design until they’re happy with it.
Retouching images can often be the most time-consuming part of the post-production process. It’s also the easiest to spot if it’s not done correctly. We believe in images looking as natural as possible.
We’ll clean up the image, remove any stray hairs or distracting elements, smooth out the skin, and really make your clients stand out. We work in photoshop, and focus on natural retouching, without making anyone look over-processed or fake. We can handle any challenge you throw at us!
