It’s very common. A lot of photogs use those companies for exposure, white balance, contrast, etc adjustments. They often use their own presets to finish everything off, though. Post-processing is really, really time intensive, and it is a way that the photogs can balance taking on more weddings while still delivering high quality results. It eats into profits, but is overall a good deal for a photog that can then book more clients.

My photog did this. She is a high end Boston photographer. I examined her photos both before and after she started using the service and they were basically indistinguishable. I’m very for photogs doing anything they can to be more efficient – it’s a tough field to work in!

It’s very common within the wedding industry, especially those shooting a high volume. They use an editing company to cull and do the basic edits (color, exposure, white balance, etc) and then do the final finishing edits themsevles.

Totally normal. Farming out the grunt work! The people that do it tailor the editing to each photographer so I’d never know the difference. My graphic designer does some on the side

Many companies outsource work a photographer is no different. For photographers we usually do it but some get to a point they are busy enough to hire help. Others make a living doing retouching work. In the future I will probably outsource albums, they are a time suck. Im personally not there yet to outsource my post work and as of late Ive been doing way more graphic design work! lol
