We keep our process simple.
Your style, not ours
Your style matters, that’s why we take the time to learn it – at Freedom, we won’t just slap on a preset and call it good. Each catalog is given the same attention as you would provide.
Consistency has never been easier. Or faster! From cull to delivery in just a week, we own the part of our job that makes you look good. And delivering a completely edited catalog well ahead of schedule to your client that makes you look damn goooood.

You have options.
Basic, Advanced or House Edit
Basic Edits allows your preset to be applied and provides you with an on brand consistent look with light cropping and straightening while utilizing all the Basic module adjustments of Lightroom.
Advanced Editing unleashes more features of Lightroom by combining the basic service plus the localized tools only on the images that need it. We apply the Advanced Editing features on average to 25% of your catalog (with a max of 30%) – this allows us to keep our pricing for Advanced Editing low and our turnaround times fast!
The Freedom House Edit is for our commercial high volume photographers that need a clean and consistent look with neutral white balance and pop delivered to you within 3 business days.
Best choice if you need simple color correction, some global adjustments and a little light cropping.

Before and After
Do you need Freedom?
Take our fun quiz to determine if you really need Freedom. It’s like BuzzFeed, but without the annoying ads.
Your questions answered.
What is the price?
FAM members receive up to 30% discount off all editing and culling services. Monthly memberships start at $495/per month with a 1-year commitment.
Pay Per Order price is $0.25 for Basic editing and $0.33 for Advanced. With Pay Per Order, you’ll be invoiced for each order submitted. Freedom has a $30 minimum order.
What if I'm not happy with the editing?
We work with you to learn your editing style and thought process to replicate your style consistently. Plus we’re always happy to re-edit any event where you think we’ve missed the mark!
For peace of mind, if you’re part of the FAM™ when you sign your contract, there is a 30 day or 3 order (which ever comes first) commitment-free period. During this period you only pay for the images you have us edit, and you can cancel anytime within that first window.
What’s your turnaround time?
For those in our FAM™, the turnaround time for culling or editing only is 5 business days or 7 days for cull and editing.
For our Pay Per Order customers, it’s between 7 – 14 business days depending on whether you have culling and editing or just one or the other.
With House Edits, editing is a 3 business day turnaround. Add 2 days to your turnaround time for catalogs over 1,000 images or culling required.
How will you be able to match my style?
We know how important it is to get it right when it comes to mastering your style. We’ll meet in Zoom to learn your process, create an editing profile including your presets, and determine your preferences for all lighting situations.
You will submit a catalog for a free test edit, as well as the presets you use. We won’t just match it, we will replicate your work. This is your opportunity to provide feedback on what you liked and what we need to do differently. Your communication with us makes this a successful partnership.
Am I assigned an editor?
Each member of our FAM has a dedicated Account Handler that knows your style inside out and manages a small team of editors dedicated to you and your studio. With a small dedicated team of editors, we are able to handle influxes of workload without sacrificing turnaround time. Your account handler will review each order for consistency.
If you’re on Pay Per Order, you are not assigned an account handler. We’ll still go through the process of learning how you edit but when you submit an order, but it will go to the next available editor.
Do you offer head swapping?
Unfortuntely, No. We only edit in Lightroom and that sort of editing would be better suited in Photoshop.
How do we transfer files between each other?
smart previews. We’ll walk you step-by-step through this simple process. We promise it’s not complicated!
Can you explain how FAM™ payments work?
Freedom comes from balance and that’s just what you get with our Freedom Annual Membership 12-month pricing. You pay the same price each month, no matter how crazy your schedule might be. Based on the membership you select will determine how many credits you have for the year. You may use your credits however and whenever you want giving you the Freedom to have consistent payments all year long.
Should the booking gods smile down on you, and your session loads increase, we can add on increments of 1,500 credits at any point throughout your 12 month membership!
Is there anything you don't edit?
Due to privacy concerns and model release limitations, we are UNABLE to take on any work relating to BIRTH, NEWBORN, or BOUDOIR photography. Including any photography containing nudity or implied nudity. If your photos have nudity your order will not be processed and returned to you.
What software do you use?
All of our photo edits are done in Lightroom. By utilizing the Smart Preview™ feature for sending and editing files, we are able to exchange large amounts of data quickly and efficiently. *You will need Lightroom 6 or newer to send us files.
How many images are in my test edit?
You will send in a full catalog. From that catalog, we will select 20 images to edit for your feedback and approval. To maximize this test edit effectively, please choose a catalog from an event showcasing different lighting situations. This will allow us to replicate your work in a variety of situations for the purpose of consistency.
What happens if I want to change my style?
How do public holidays affect my turnaround times?
We are closed for 8 holidays a year that are observed in the UK. You will always receive reminder communications leading up to those dates with detailed information on when to submit your work in order to receive it back before closures. This way, you will be able to communicate with your clients beforehand and adjust their expectations to include any delays in viewing their final product. Holidays observed in the UK are New Years Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, May Day, Spring Bank Holiday, Christmas and Boxing Day. Our offices are typically closed over the Christmas – New Year holiday but you’ll be notified of those dates in advance.
Do you use Photoshop/Can you use my Photoshop Actions?
Short answer: No.
Long answer is that Lightroom can do most everything Photoshop can do, only more efficiently and with file sizes that can be accommodated easily. If you are unsure about using Lightroom, we are happy to schedule a zoom call to walk you through the basics.
