I was tired, burnt out, and time with husband and kids was waning through the busy season. I hated thinking that I was no longer providing a great service to my wonderful clients and I was scared that by outsourcing my editing would turn into something lackluster and trendy, not the custom look I had created it to be. But I needed time. I needed to be able to delegate tasks out, actually have quality time with my family, and for goodness sakes, read a book for enjoyment. Outsourcing my editing was the first step for me because it’s the most time consuming. Now, I’m able to spend time communicating with my clients. I’m tending to their needs and not just skating by. I’m spending time with my husband (date nights!), homeschooling my kids in the morning (now much easier!) and I’m even trying out new things (watercolor!).
I love how real Jen is, I’m pretty sure she’s my spirit animal. She is so kind, hard working, and a fellow mompreneur who gets it; why we need to outsource and how to live a well balanced life. She’s more than happy to deliver a great product back to me and she understands my business.

I was confident in my workflow, and was currently editing my weddings in under 2 hours, so I thought hiring an editor would be a waste of money. I was sure it would take too long to teach her my style and I would just spend more time making corrections to her edits. But I’m all about trying something at least once, and so many friends were recommending that I try a personal editor.
Since hiring Jen, I have had more freedom in my personal life. This spring has been the busiest season yet and instead of being stationed behind my computer editing my 12 weddings in nine weeks, I was able to spend time with my husband and recoup after back to back double header weekends, and even a double followed by a triple! The self-care that is happening this wedding season is unlike anything I have been able to experience since starting my business, and I attribute all of that to hiring Jen! She picked up on my style very quickly and I’m even able to maintain my quick turnaround time of less than 10 days.
My husband and I are very soon entering a new season of life. We're just 20 weeks away from welcoming a baby into this world and I'm thankful I started working with Jen when I did. In 20 weeks, I know that I won’t be missing out on any firsts. I’ll be snuggling my newborn, knowing my edits are well taken care of. She has made it possible to be a present momma instead of busy wedding photographer.

I was so disappointed in my current editing company and looking for a one-on-one experience where I could expect consistent results.
Jen is responsive and informative, she always allows my critiques and works from them and bases her workflow off of reference images to better guide the expected results I need on a wedding’s edits (something my previous service didn’t accept, silly.)
I’ve had a quicker turnaround time to my clients and I’m looking forward to more “free” time (what’s that?!) to put towards growing my business instead of spending hours and hours on editing.

I was overwhelmed with the hours I spent editing weddings. I was about to become a new mother and had a fear of being able to balance work and life as a new mom (I’m still figuring that part out), but Jen’s service allow me to spend time with my baby and less time behind a computer! We have a solid workflow and I started receiving consistent results in no time at all. Working with her is so easy as she answer questions about using Lightroom and implements all of my feedback to future editing.
From the start, Jen’s personal editing style was similar to mine, clean with bright colors, void of any heavy editing trends. She was prompt with responding, getting started, and has been extremely helpful and friendly along the way! The biggest gain I have received from outsourcing my editing is TIME. I can now spend less time in Lightroom, more time with my family, and rest assured that I am getting consistent editing results.

Thanks to Jen, I no longer worry every night about how much time I’ll be spending in the office, working on images instead of spending time with my family and friends. I now spend WAY less time editing and tweaking my images, and receive compliments on how well everything flows together and how incredibly fast I’m able to get my galleries back to my clients.
Before I found Jen, I was overwhelmed with my workload, but feared that outsourcing would be too big of an expense. Now, I send my images to Jen and have them back in less than a week. I’m able to blog each wedding within three days and send the final gallery off to my clients in 2-3 weeks.
More than that, Jen is such a communicator!! If I have a question, she is always willing to help in any shape or form - she’s incredibly patient and understanding and she always gets back to me within 12-24 hours or less. In return, I’m happy to support Jen so that she can also spend more time with her family and work as a stay at home mom.
I’m enjoying spending more quality time WITH my current and future clients and am always looking forward to ENJOYING summer and not being stuck inside my office, working on a computer.
