As a professional photographer, there are many benefits to hiring a private photo editor, especially if you are super busy! In this blog post, we’ll discuss five reasons you might want to outsource your photo editing.
Benefit 1: Save Time
One of the most important benefits to hiring a private photo editor is that it can save TIME. Lots of time. Let’s be real; most photographers dread the editing process. You love to photograph all the pretty details of a wedding day but then what? You have to sit slumped over at your computer desk for hours to cull the bajillion photos you took and color correct the final photos.
You squeeze in every free minute you can to edit but it’s so tedious and there are literally a million other things you could be doing with your time. Like sleeping instead of staying up until 3am. Or spending quality time with your family.
I don’t know about you, but my team and I value family A LOT (and sleep. Sleep is good too). So any chance I can spend time with family or be well rested, I’ll take it. These are things we do not take for granted.
Benefit 2: Get Professional Results
You would call yourself a professional photographer right? You’ve earned it after all the hard work it took to get to where you are. Therefore, it only makes sense to have your photos edited so you get professional results. A professional private photo editor will have the skills and experience to edit your photos to the highest standard. This means that you will be able to produce high-quality photos that will impress not only your clients but your friends and family.
We get it; not everyone likes to edit. My team and I prefer to be behind a computer instead of a camera. We’ve started as photographers so we’ve been in your shoes but the process that most people dread, we love. We’re dedicated towards getting you professional results and that’s another benefit to hiring a private photo editor!
Benefit 3: Consistency is key
If you hire a private photo editor, you’ll also get consistent results. This is because we will be familiar with your style and will be able to edit your photos in a way that is consistent with your vision. Consistency is key with wedding photography because there are so many photos and they all need to represent your specific editing style.
After you decide to outsource your editing with us, we like to edit a complementary test catalog (just a handful of images) for each new client. This allows us to master your editing style before we dive into a big wedding, guaranteeing that we get consistent results from the start!
Benefit 4: Feedback
A private photo editor can also provide you with feedback on your photos. This feedback can be helpful in improving your photography skills. We can offer suggestions on how to improve them, of course, only if you’re open to receiving feedback.
We also believe that giving us feedback is important too. Communication in general is crucial between a photographer and a private photo editor. With each wedding, we provide a feedback form so if anything needs to be changed, then you have an opportunity to tell us. If clients don’t tell us if something needs to be changed, then how will be know for the next wedding?
Benefit 5: Get Peace of Mind
Finally, hiring a private photo editor can give you peace of mind. You can be confident that your photos are in good hands and that they will be edited to the highest standard. This can be especially helpful if editing is not your favorite thing. Trust us, you’ll be sleeping better and less stressed, which are two things we value!
As you can see, there are many benefits to hiring a private photo editor. If you are looking for a way to save time, get professional results, be consistent, get feedback, or get peace of mind, then hiring a private photo editor is a good option for you.
- When hiring a private photo editor, it is important to find someone who is experienced and has a good portfolio.
- It is also important to discuss your expectations with the editor before you start working together.
- Be sure to provide the editor with clear instructions on what you want done with your photos.
- Finally, be prepared to pay a fair price for the editor’s services.
