How We Edit Our Images in Lightroom 4

POSTED IN : Business & Client Experience

NOTE: We’ll be updating this ASAP with a Lightroom 5 Video Not too long ago we posted a tutorial about how we get such beautiful, consistent skin tones in our images using Lightroom 3, and at about the same time Adobe released Lightroom 4 which works differently and has all kinds of different sliders, so we decided it was time to record another tutorial. (If you like, you can check out the Lightroom 3 tutorial here) In this screencast, I demo how Jeff and I edit our wedding and engagement images in Adobe Lightroom 4. This isn’t a tutorial on how to use Lightroom, it’s simply an explanation of the editing process we use to achieve our natural style for our wedding and engagement shoots. I even give away our ‘secret ingredient’… This screencast is open to our newsletter subscribers only, so sign up to receive our updates and you’ll be sent the exclusive password for subscriber-only content just like this.

We teach photographers to build life-giving businesses that they absolutely love.

About Us

We're Jeff & Erin

We’re Jeff and Erin Youngren – and it’s our mission to help you thrive not just as a wedding photographer, but as a business owner. It’s time to set aside the stress and comparison of a hustle mindset, and build a life-giving business instead.

We met in college, got married, and started corporate jobs before we discovered (and fell in love with) wedding photography. But like many creative entrepreneurs, we were booking anything we could, strapped to our laptops and living dangerously close to burnout.

So we dug in and learned how to build a thriving business that supports our dream life – instead of a joyless business that runs a stressed-out life.

Today, we photograph only 10 Dreamie weddings per year, but we also run two other wedding brands plus a commercial studio in San Diego, CA. And we do it by only working the hours that fit into our life. The other hours? We spend those living a joyful life raising our two beautiful sons, James and Samuel.

hugs,

Jeff and Erin
