PHOTOGRAPHER TURNED PHOTO EDITOR & EDUCATOR
Straight out of college just after getting my BFA in photography, I started my entrepreneurial journey as a wedding photographer. After several years of working back-to-back weekends out of town and constant evening shoots, I knew something needed to change (burnt out and exhausted, party of one!).
I also knew how valuable my editing skills were in the industry, and decided to try my hand as a private photo editor for other photographers.
At the time, you had to break into freelance photo editing as a previous photographer (or pay thousands for 1:1 mentoring). So, I transitioned into editing — and made a ton of mistakes along the way with a "figure it out along the way" method. My editing was slow, my backend systems were outdated/clunky, client communication was inefficient, nothing was automated (stumbling to find my way, really). Learning this way truly cost me so much time, income, and even clients — but, with each mistake I made was a chance to learn and grow. So with time, I improved and streamlined ALL of my processes and overall client experience (hello profits)!
Now, I have edited over 1,000 weddings and counting (crazy, right?)! Today, I’m able to travel freely with my time valued around $100/hr, I edit part-time with a full-time income, and sign off early every Friday!
But I’m not a one-in-a-million editing unicorn. You can absolutely do the same, and I’m handing over the exact blueprint of automated systems, speed techniques, and done-for-you tools I wish I’d had so you can do it better, faster.
