All About Photo Editing

In order to provide you with the best images possible, all photos from your event will undergo a process known as global editing. This process adjusts elements such as exposure, white balance, and black point, ensuring each image captures the atmosphere perfectly. Please note, these global edits are the standard adjustments made to all the photos that will be delivered to you.

Beyond Standard Edits: Additional Photo Editing Services

While global edits enhance your images considerably, you may want additional pixel-based edits like object removal, blemish removal or teeth whitening. These detailed edits are not included in the standard service but can be arranged for an additional fee.

High Res Files & Print Purchase Options

Should you wish to have high-quality prints made from your event’s images, these can be purchased directly from me, at the published prices posted here. If you prefer to print the photos yourself or need high-resolution files for any other purpose, these files can also be purchased after the event.
