From real photographers

the experience

"Kristen knows my style so well and can match it perfectly - I can't even tell the difference between my edits and hers!"

Before working with Kristen I would spend hours editing and living behind my computer, I felt like I was constantly running in a circle between shooting and editing. I finally realized that if I wanted to expand my business ( and get my life back! ) that there was no way I could do that by spending hours a day editing images! I was nervous to hand over my editing but Kristen made me feel so comfortable and I knew that this was the right next step for me! Over the last two years Kristen has helped me gain SO much of my time back that I have been able to scale my business in ways that I only dreamed of when I was stuck editing. I used to spend at least 12-15 hours editing weddings and now I spend maybe an hour in total - from editing example images to proofing her final edits, that is barely anything!

Kristen knows my style so well and can match it perfectly - I can't even tell the difference between my edits and hers! Truthfully, I think my clients actually receive a more consistent gallery with her taking over the editing!

what they're saying

"She's attentive, thoughtful, detail-oriented and hardworking...she serves her clients so well, and that is something that I cherish even more than her talent!"

Before working with Kristen, my plate was full with weddings and editing - I couldn't get everything done! Either my clients suffered because deadlines were slipping or my family suffered because I was working too much. On top of that, I was in the middle of planning my own wedding, and looking at my calendar for the upcoming season, I knew something had to change. I reached out to Kristen after a friend of mine raved about her work ethic and attention to detail, and I'm so glad that I did!

Kristen is one of the BEST decisions I have made in my business and I can't even begin to tell you how much stress she takes off my shoulders when it comes to returning galleries! 

Last year was insane for my business. Looking back, I can't imagine getting through it as successfully I did without Kristen! She's attentive, thoughtful, detail-oriented and hardworking. Plus, her communication skills are off the chart. She serves her clients so well, and that is something that I cherish even more than her talent! It was a no-brainer for me to bring her on for my 2019 weddings!

what they're saying

"I am a control freak...so letting go of editing my weddings was a huge step...I wish I had done it sooner!"

I was consumed with edits and getting little sleep, which is a terrible combination! I would stay up until 2am color correcting, just to realize the next day that my edits got more and more green and have to start all over again!

I am a control freak in every aspect of my business so letting go of editing my weddings was a huge step, and I wish I had done it sooner! Kristen has made the process so easy and given me back so much time! Kristen has gone above and beyond, answering my questions about Lightroom and helping me troubleshoot, and she's always super responsive!

Once I hand over my images from my weddings, I am able to move on to the next task, and rest assure that my images are going to look the way I expect them to and get done a whole lot quicker!

Lauren Kearns

what they're saying

"I can't imagine going back to the way it was. Life changing!" 

I truly felt like I was drowning before working with Kristen. I have 2 full time jobs and I had zero time to spend with my husband and friends. 

It took us a few weddings to really fine tune my particular needy style but now it's like a well oiled machine. I have my life back! I feel like I have free time to spend with my family. I enjoy all of my weddings and can spend time reinvesting in other areas of my business. I can take on more weddings and spend more time pleasing clients!

 I can't imagine going back to the way it was. Life changing! 



Kir Tuben

what they're saying

Working with Kristen has given me my life back! I'm not longer feeling guilty trying to keep up, or editing at all hours of the night. 

Before I found Kristen, my workload was overwhelming and my family/social time was suffering tremendously. On top of having thousands of images to edit, I was over analyzing and taking much longer than needed to edit them. I was struggling to meet my deadlines and exhausted from the hours it took to do it all! 

My images are overall more consistent and I am able to deliver my clients images to them much faster! Overall, this has made a huge difference in my ability to keep up with my business!

Working with Kristen has given me my life back! I'm not longer feeling guilty trying to keep up, or editing at all hours of the night. I am able to put more time into getting to know my clients, implement new marketing strategies, and the list goes on. I'm happier, my friends and family are happier and my clients are getting their images as fast as possible!

Working with Kristen is the absolute best discussion I've made thus far!  



Kristy Roderick

what they're saying

Consistent, easy, timely, and super high quality.

"Kristen's work is amazing! We've used a "big box photo editor" before, and while we liked the results, they were far from perfect. As soon as we started using Kristen, there was a significant difference in the quality of the pictures we got back, as well as the time I had to spend tweaking the pictures! 

Having her as our private photo editor has allowed us to have one-on-one discussions about the editing style and get exactly what we're looking for! That's impossible to do with other photo editing companies! There's no guessing or hoping that the pictures will be right, we know for certain that what Kristen does will be spot on.

She's always super responsive on email and willing to accommodate even our last minute edit requests, and always seems to do so with a smile on her face! 

Using Kristen will allow you to get better quality and more consistent pictures in less time than doing it yourself or having any other photo editing company do it, leaving you with happier clients and more time to spend building your business or enjoying your family!"

Joel and amber palmer

what they're saying

 "I feel as though I have gained back time in my life and that's huge." 

Kristen is SO friendly and professional!

Although we live on opposite sides of the country I always feel like I am chatting with a friend. Just the kind of person I want in my business. She answers all of my questions quickly and throughly and makes any process feel easier.

I honestly don't know what I would have done without her help this year! I feel as though I have gained back time in my life and that's huge.

THANK YOU, KRISTEN!

Abby Byrd

what they're saying

 "I have complete trust that my images are going to flow seamlessly. " 

Before working with Kristen I was editing all of my own sessions and weddings. I was working into the wee hours of the morning and waking up exhausted from staying up all night. I had plenty of work but also had client's constantly emailing me about when their stuff was going to be back and I just wasn't keeping up like I wanted to. 

After working with Kristen, I have been able to return weddings back to brides in record time. I have consistently edited work and don't have to worry about checking over each and every image to make sure it's how I like. I have complete trust that my images are going to flow seamlessly. I have been able to spend more time with my family and spend less time in front of the computer.

I am so grateful for Kristen and how flexible she has been with me this year. After having baby number 2 I really got out of the swing of things, but Kristen has been patient with me and has never given me anything but quality work whenever I send her a wedding session to edit. I am so grateful that I am able to rely on her. This past year has been a game changer and has shown me what a more balanced life looks like with work and family. I am looking forward to a new year of working with Kristen!

what they're saying

 "I consider Kristen much more than my editor now, she is a friend more than anything." 

I have had nothing but great things happen since using Kristen as my editor. Not only do I have my life back but my workflow is becoming more main stream and efficient. She has taken my business from a stressed mess to an easy flow. I love that she has matched my style and is able to communicate with me with ease.

I consider Kristen much more than my editor now, she is a friend more than anything. I have loved getting to know her through this process. And to say she completes my business would be an understatement. As a wedding photographer I can get so caught up in the hustle of all that goes into weddings, but I have a peace in my mind that Kristen is going to take my vision and make it shine through her editing.

Just having that piece of stress off my plate is enough for me to be able to focus on other accepts of business and get everything knocked out in no time at all. 

Sabel Moments

what they're saying

In 2017 I left my job as a marketing director at a multimillion dollar company to become a photo editor and never looked back. After editing over 700 weddings, 550,000 images, and having a closed client list for 3 years, I made the decision to bring on more likeminded women to help photographers not only get back more time, but to encourage them to lean into their other callings in life. I personally edit 300 weddings a year and love helping wedding photographers get back to the things that matter most.

When we work together, you can always count on a custom workflow, timely edits, and a truly awesome partnership that helps you succeed in your business. I’ve edited over 550,000 photos and have the experience to help you take your life back by outsourcing your photo editing.

I believe that owning your own business should give you joy, fulfillment, and focus. Let me show you how!

Growing up I dreamed of two major things for my life: my desire to be a faith-filled mama and wanting to serve others with my creativity, love and joy. I was never quite sure what that service would look like, until I fell in love with wedding videography and photo editing. 

I found that I loved being a contributor to the special moments of people’s lives. Life is so incredibly valuable and beautiful, and I love giving others the opportunity to both remember it and seize as much of it as they can.

Working with me you can trust that I will bring my best self along with all that I’ve learned to the table. That includes: honoring you and your work, getting to know you and your style, paying attention to the details, delivering your edits in a timely manner and having an open ear to whatever it is you desire for your images. 

I would be honored to serve you in this way and look forward to the chance to meet you!

What do you value?

My faith, being a mama and wife, balance, health - mentally and physically, community.

What do you want photographers to know?

That they can trust me to serve them well and honor them and their work. 

What sets you apart?

My ability to be flexible, understanding and open to whatever it is others need.

What are your favorite things?

My family, Jesus, summertime, seasons, cooking and baking, soul moving worship, quality time with my family and friends, new adventures - all of the travel, lip stain and maxi skirts!

What is your fav TV show?

I love brightly colored shows and my favorite is always changing! Currently I can't get enough of Master Chef Junior! Have you seen those kids?! The gifts they have in the kitchen just amaze me!

10 years ago I started my journey with weddings - you could say I'm a planner, turned photographer, and now private photo editor. I thrive on the challenge that comes along with being a second set of eyes and empowering businesses to reach new levels. Being on my team means you'll get an organized timeline, an efficient turnaround, and a dependable friend cheering you on. 

I understand wholeheartedly the stress that might come with outsourcing. If you're here you're either on the fence or eager to get some hours back to your life, both personal and business. You can trust that I don't take this responsibility lightly and I would be honored to support you and your dreams. 

I welcome the opportunity to work with you so you can get back to what you love doing most!

What do you value?

My relationship with Jesus is everything. My marriage and shepherding two girls is the biggest and most important job I’ve been given. 


What do you want photographers to know?

Even though I will never meet the couple, I feel like we're friends when the gallery is delivered. (is that part make me a weirdo?! haha!) I’m efficient, easy to communicate with, and I make sure timelines run smoothly. 

What sets you apart?

Releasing images to an editor and trusting we’ll learn their style (and quickly) is a huge leap of faith. I pour my heart into learning each individual photographer well so they can get back to their business and what they love doing most.


What are your favorite things?

God, my hubby, 2 girls, and Golden Retriever give me more joy than I can express. Date nights on the patio after bedtime is our season of life and I love it. Give me a Trader Joe’s candle, fresh flowers, and an iced coffee, and my day. is. made. :) 


What is your fav TV show?

The Office will never get old and Fixer Upper- you better believe I’m counting down the days until they return.

Core Values

exemplify Christlikeness

We believe in pursuing Christlikeness through photo editing and education. Through every encounter with a client we aim to exemplify Christlikeness.

A successful business is one that gives you more time with your family and less late-night hours parked at a computer screen. Burning both ends of the candle isn’t what life is about. 

When a noisy webspace tells you 6-figures is the only path to success, it’s hard not to feel inadequate. But here, we know that money is a tool, not a determiner of success. A profitable business may be the goal but not at the risk of your sanity, well-being, and joy.

value and purpose over success or failure.

money doesn’t lead to ultimate happiness.

SMAL

Yes, girl! I’m so ready.

How does this all work, anyway?

Here’s the deal

OUR PROCESS

Once you reach out, we’ll schedule a consultation video chat where I, Kristen, will get to know you a bit better! I want to use this time to make sure that my company will be the best fit for your needs! If we both think my company will be the the perfect fit, I’ll pair you with the editor on my team that I think will be the perfect match! 

next

Yes, girl! You’re officially a client. First things first is to schedule a style consult with your very own editor! Your editor will take the time to dive in deep with your style. Then, each quarter, you’ll schedule weddings on your personal editor's Editing Appointment calendar so scheduling photo editing is as easy as one click. This makes it possible for both you and your editor to plan out the year.

next

previous

When you work with your editor, she will help create a customized workflow specific to your clients, process, and editing style. Peak season may be busy, but we guarantee timely edits and satisfied clients every time!

previous

No, during your consult call with Kristen she will do a lot of listening and question asking to make sure that you are paired with the right editor, not only in editing style, but also personality! 

WILL I WORK WITH MORE THAN ONE EDITOR?

answer:
DOES EACH EDITOR HAVE A PORTFOLIO?

answer:

Because we put our time and skill into matching each photographers unique style, a portfolio wouldn't be an effective gauge of our skill. You edit your images in a unique way and we want to replicate that! 

WHAT ARE YOUR TURNAROUND TIMES?

answer:

Our turnaround times are custom to your workflow! Do you want to send your wedding images back by week 4? Great! We can help you achieve that. Trying to get images back to your brides by 2.5 weeks? We can do that too! 

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT THAN A BIG BOX?

answer:

Big box companies will assign 2-3 editors to work on your galleries at any given time. Working with us, you have one editor that you communicate with! Your personal editor is who you have direct contact to via email!

DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM?

answer:

At this time, we do not require minimum number of weddings a year to be a client with us. We work with clients who shoot 10 weddings a year and photographers who shoot 30 plus.

DO YOU HAVE A CONTRACT?

answer:

Yes, we do have a contract, but it's not like your cell phone company. We ask that you sign a year long agreement outlining that you understand our procedures, but if you need to stop outsourcing mid-year, we simply ask for 30 days notice to plan accordingly for the loss of projected income.  

WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SEND YOU IMAGES? 

answer:

Not a problem! We have the process nailed down! We will send you ALL the information you need to know, including videos if you are more of a visual person, to walk you through everything!

WILL I NEED TO PAY FOR ANYTHING ADDITIONAL?

answer:

All of our clients will need to have a Dropbox Plus subscription to help maintain an organized file workflow.

Dropbox Plus prices can be viewed here

WILL YOU EDIT MY ENGAGEMENTS SESSIONS TOO?

answer:

Yes, if you send us your weddings we are happy to edit your other sessions too! Our pricing for portrait sessions have a $50 minimum.

So, any gallery we edit that has less than 130 images is a flat $50.
