I am Catrina and I'm so happy you're here!!!
I am a photographer myself and have worked closely with my husband over the years for our business. We have learned early on how important it is to be able to deliver beautiful photos to our clients in a timely manner. I started Carlson Editing Services as a way to work with other photographers so they are able to offer beautifully edited photos to their clients quicker than ever before. While also freeing up some more time for you as the photographer to do more of what you love! Light airy edits are our jam! But we love learning what makes your specific style unique as well!
After we determine we're a good fit from our initial meeting, I will set up a style consult. This will really help me dig deep into your particular style and what makes your work unique. From here you will send over some test edits for a trial run.
You will have your own individual calendar that you will add your wedding or session dates to that I will share with you. Each quarter, I will go through and confirm the dates as well as set out a calendar to book your editing appointments on! Once you have your anchor images ready, you will send them over to me on your scheduled appointment date.
I work in Lightroom for my editing. Lightroom is such an amazing program and allows us to utilize Smart Previews for editing instead of exchanging the large RAW files. This helps cut back time for uploads and downloads. You will have your Dropbox account that you will drop the smart previews into, and I will edit from there!
Once the photos are completed, I will send the catalog back to you which will sync to all your original images. You will be able to export from Lightroom and be done!!
I invoice clients after the images are delivered and payment is due within 7 days of receipt.
I also offer Export/Import Guides that will tell you exactly what to do through the process so we can exchange images seamlessly!
