If you outsourced your editing, you would get 0 hours back each week and 0 hours back every month.

That adds up to 0 hours per year!

What could you do with that time?



Wouldn’t you want to spend it with friends and family or vacationing, or hell, even growing your business so you can make your money??

That’s what I thought.

Keep scrolling to learn a little bit more about me and my team, and what we can do to help you take your life back AND grow your business.

ABOUT

Giving a bigger shit about your photos
than anyone else.

If you’re looking to just outsource a few jobs here and there, this isn’t the company for you. If you’re looking for partners in crime who you can depend on wedding after wedding, portrait session after portrait session, let’s talk.

We work with the same clients again and again. This allows us to learn their editing style forwards and backwards to the point where they can’t tell the difference between our editing and theirs.

And there’s no middle-man. You communicate directly with your editor, whether it’s me or Gaea. These are your pictures, and you deserve to have them done your way. And we are committed to helping you get that.

Click the images below to meet me, the indomitable leader, or Gaea, my second in command.

(But wait, how is outsourcing useful for me or my business in the first place!?)

  • “Beth is the ultimate goddess of photo editing.”

    “Beth has simply been a godsend and my only regret is that we didn't start working with her years ago when we were first referred to her. Instead we went with one of the other "major" post-production companies and despite having their varieties of color/toning profiles to choose from, the images never came back just the way we wanted them. All we had to do with Beth was share some of our images from each part of the wedding day and an explanation of how we like things to look, and we seriously could not believe our eyes when we got the first wedding back. It was at least 98% perfection! On her first try! She has freed up so much time for us that we're now looking to expand by taking on more shoots and starting another side business. Don't waste time trying other "big-name" companies for your post production. Beth's personalized service will have out shooting more, making more, and enjoying photography more again in no time!”

How it Works

You send us your stuff. We edit like a boss.

Family Portraits
Senior Sessions
Weddings
Events
Newborns
Real Estate Photography

I’m sure I’m forgetting something….but we edit that too.

We even take orders from people outside of the U.S.! As long as you can send digital files, we can accommodate your needs.

Here’s a few more details about how the process works:

You email me – You fill out my contact form questionnaire and say, ‘Hey, I sorta need help because I work at home 75% of the time and haven’t even seen my own family in two weeks.’ Or something like that. Your reasons may vary, I’m summarizing here.

I take a look – I look over your workload and determine if your workload needs and our current availability match up.

The Test Edit – If I determine your workload would be a good fit for either me or Gaea, I share a Dropbox folder with you and we move on to a test edit. This is free for up to 30 images.

Critique – You go over the test edit and comment on what you like and what you don’t like. This is critical for starting to learn your style.

Moving Forward – If the test edit goes well, we move on to a regular working arrangement where you send us stuff on a regular basis and we edit like champs.

Rainbows and Unicorns – Yay! You’re successfully outsourcing! I bet you feel awesome right about now huh? You can go back to having a life, or even better, use the extra time to grow your business and make even more moneyz.

  • “'COULD NOT POSSIBLY BE HAPPIER WITH MY EXPERIENCE.'”

    “Beth has an eye for color and editing that is nearly impossible to find in an outsourcing company. I was amazed how quickly she was able to adapt to my editing style and how few corrections I had to give. She's super fun, super fast, so flexible, and she has saved me SOOO much time. I think I might be in love. <3“

  • “"SHE MATCHED MY EDITING STYLE PERFECTLY, AND ALLOWED ME TO FOCUS ON THE THING I REALLY LOVE - MY FAMILY."”

    “I had finally had enough. It was busy season again, I was completely burned out, living behind my computer editing instead of enjoying time with my family. My business was supposed to be making my life better, not making me miserable. So I finally decided to outsource my editing. My friend recommended Beth, and she has been the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my business. Not only are her fees extremely reasonable, but she matched my editing style perfectly and allowed me to focus on the thing I REALLY love – my family. I wish I had been smart enough to outsource editing, album design, and other business tasks earlier on and saved myself the stress I had from trying to do it all myself. Beth has changed my business and changed my quality of life. I can’t recommend her enough.“

Don’t like the editing style pictured below? Don’t worry about it!
I tailor my editing to meet each of my clients’ individual style. I’ll update this page with different styles as time goes on, as per the permission and copyright agreements of the photographers I work with.

Are you a portrait photographer? Have no fear!
You can expect your portraits to turn out just as lovely as the wedding photos pictured above.

  • “"I NEVER COULD HAVE GROWN MY BUSINESS OR HAD A HINT OF SANITY WITHOUT BETH"”

    “I used Beth for my wedding editing and she’s amazing! She treated my business like it was her own and truly cared about the quality of the images she was turning over to me. I never could have grown my business or had a hint of sanity without Beth. I loved working with somebody I could trust to get my editing done in a timely manner and do an amazing job at it. Thank You Beth!“
