Imagine shooting a wedding or portrait session and as you pack your camera away, you know you are less than one day away from having that shoot wrapped up and “in the books” in its entirety. Yes, this includes shooting a full-day wedding on the weekend and waking up Tuesday morning with the entire job culled, edited and ready for viewing! This can happen, and without any compromise of quality.
This course takes you on a comprehensive walk through the tried-and-true post-processing workflow I have created, and helps you define your own concrete and attainable end-goals. The content offered gives you the ability to get photos to your clients quickly using a reliable and sustainable workflow plan, producing photos that are top-notch in quality.
We will cover high-yield topics such as photo storage, presentation and sales to clients, post-processing use of software, the most effective use of social media, and archiving so that you can easily retrieve photos for past clients or for your own portfolio without hassle.

“I shot my first wedding in college and was instantly addicted. Nine years and hundreds of weddings later, I feel like I am starting to get the hang of things.
I have learned that the best way to truly enjoy the hard work associated with wedding photography is to have a post-wedding workflow that is as efficient as possible. The balance between swift post-processing and the highest artistic quality is a delicate balance that I humbly believe I have mastered through experience.”
Lukas & his wife Suzy work as a team and their photos can be seen on numerous wedding blogs and in magazines including Style Me Pretty, Utterly Engaged magazine, Le Magnifique, Glamour and Grace, The Wedding Chicks, Perfect Bound, and Engaged and Inspired.
