Hi there, I'm Christi! For 10 years I was a wedding and portrait photographer. Now, as a private photo editor, I am privileged to serve my clients in ways that make their businesses thrive. My passion is cheering others on and coming alongside them to meet their needs and watch them flourish. I love the nitty gritty details of editing and organizing, and I have truly found my niche in the creative industry! I'd love to serve you fully so that you can fully serve your clients!

With a private photo editor, you can spend less time on the mundane task of editing and more time on what truly drives you: serving your clients and capturing their memories. You'll have the freedom to fully follow your passion!
By outsourcing the less profitable parts of your business and focusing on those parts that are more profitable, your business can truly grow. You have unique skills and talents that deserve to add value to your business. So let them!
Are you ever so busy that your editing starts piling up? With a private editor, you'll never fall behind in your editing. And with my help, you get the added benefit of having your images in the hands of a fellow photographer who knows your struggles!
I will work with you to learn and understand your creative style and produce edits that align with your vision. I will study your edit history in Lightroom and edit any sliders to successfully reproduce your style. I will also happily apply any presets that you use. Not only will I make color and light corrections, but I will straighten, crop, and provide basic spot removal edits.
Every photographer has their own unique workflow and process of culling, blogging, and delivery. I will work with you to make sure you get your images when you need them! Whether you have a 30-day or a 7-day workflow, I will align my schedule to match your workflow. As an efficient Lightroom editor, I am able to edit a wedding catalog within 3-4 days of receiving it.
By editing with Smart Previews, I am able to make adjustments to your images without having to spend hours downloading every single RAW image onto my computer. You'll export your catalog, I'll edit on my computer, then I'll transfer it back to you. With Dropbox, we are able to easily share Lightroom catalogs. I'll give you specific instructions on how to do this!
"I have wanted to outsource my editing for the longest time. The post-processing of my business can sometimes be a drain. While I love meeting with clients and photographing their wedding, getting back to the office to cull and edit through sometimes between 3,000-5,000 raw images per wedding can be super daunting. I knew outsourcing would be the best way to serve my clients better by focusing on what I love and do well and letting someone else handle what can seem redundant and cause burn out for me. But I always put it off because I didn't know if I could "give up" such an integral part of my business-- my editing. Decided to take the plunge and instantly felt a huge sigh of relief as soon as I sent my first wedding gallery to Christi. She was incredibly thorough and kind, and I could tell she really wanted to get to know my style and the thought process behind it. Her turnaround time was unbelievable, especially for the level of quality of her work. And when I scrolled through the images she'd edited for me, I could have cried. It felt like a huge burden had been lifted off my shoulders! No more countless hours spent behind the computer which allowed for many more hours doing what I love most-- being with my clients and also living my life outside of work. Not to mention, every photo she edited felt "like me." I was amazed at how she had really learned my style and delivered consistent images I loved and felt represented my business well. Investing in Christi's services was the best business decision I've made all year! My only regret is not doing this sooner!" - Nichole
