What's included


The concept of handing over your editing process to a retoucher can be quite daunting. Which is why I like to regularly connect with you throughout to make sure that I am replicating your style completely, so that your workflow is seamless.

The Process


Reach out using the contact form below and we'll get the ball rolling.


We'll chat on a call about exactly the kind of edits you want to make sure that we are on the same page creatively.

Send them over

Send over your files [I'll guide you on how] with 5-10 'anchor images' edited for me to work from.


Relax knowing that I'll be editing those galleries for you to free you to pursue other things. They will be back with you in no time!

Get in Touch


What do you edit?

What is the process?

Whatever you want to give me! I mainly edit weddings/elopements, newborn and family genres.

I send you a questionnaire and we get on a call to discuss your style, likes/dislikes and what your goals are. You send me the images to a secure shared folder, I'll edit and return them in the same folder for you to download. Easy!

What does the basic edit include?

The general things to align a set, such as exposure, white balance, temp/tint, contrast, highlights/shadows and cropping to straighten.

What editing software do you use?

I use Lightroom Classic as my main source, then take images into Photoshop or Topaz if they need them.

Does it matter what file type I use?

Ideally you should send me the RAW files, that gives us the most flexibility to work with. Any other type of file is fine, though you will be compromising on quality due to compression.

What is the turnaround time?

Typically it is a 7-10 day turnaround for a standard gallery. I work down a list based on when received much like a photo lab would,
If you're in a hurry I offer a 3 day turnaround, or if you need them even quicker, a 24 hour turnaround.

Do you offer a free trial?

Absolutely! I know outsourcing is a big deal so you need to make sure that I can fully recreate your style. I can edit 3-5 images free of charge as a trial. Just let me know!
