Retouching

Our secret recipe...


Our studio believes that retouching can take an image from good to great. Many photographers have their own definition as to what defines a "deliverable" image. Some photographers will work hours on every single image and retouch in Photoshop, and some photographers will deem images taken straight out of the camera as ready to deliver.

We have researched and tested a variety of methods, and have found that our current method is the perfect combination that allows for not only client satisfaction, but is also based on good photography business principles, a win-win for you and our studio.
