As you have been building your private photo editing business, I bet this question has popped into your head at some point in time. When should you collect payment? Should you collect it before you send images over? Should you do it after you complete the job? Or should you be billing bi-weekly or monthly?
When editing weddings and portraits we all know that consistency is key for our wedding photographers.
BUT I always had a hard time checking for editing consistency in Lightroom. Sure you can use the survey mode or the library module. However, for me, when the images are not right up next to each other those small details can be so easy to miss!
What I really needed was something similar to Pass or Pixieset to get a good bird’s eye view of everything. Apparently you guys needed this too!
When starting my editing business, I tried every method possible to gain clients so I could go full time with my business.
Some of those strategies have been super successful and allowed me to gain clients QUICKLY.
But there were definitely things I did early on in my business that were holding me back from gaining clients. Had I known these mistakes starting out well, I probably would have left my 9-5 much faster.

You can take your private photo editing business full time. Pinky promise.
Today I want to make sure you are not following in my early years of business. As I type this I hope this is almost a letter to my younger self. If you are reading this, I image it is because you haven’t quite yet reached your full time goal.

There are 5 common mistakes I see over and over again. These mistakes are holding you back from achieving your goals! You might not be making all of them, but I’ll walk you through why they are hurting your business and how to fix it!
So you want to become a Private Photo Editor huh?
Well this is the blog for you! I’ll show you four basic steps to take as you embark on this new adventure!
I started my editing business 7 months ago with 2 clients. As I was growing in my business knowledge, I found my actual business growing too! In December of 2016 I found myself with 4 clients and 24 weddings on the books for 2017. This was great but I wanted so much more. By implementing what I was learning about marketing and business strategy, I quickly grew to having 14 clients and almost 200 weddings within 60 days! And now I want to share what I’ve learned with you!
