        You know that feeling when you spend hours culling through images, editing your 100+ favorites and send them to your clients, only to discover they upload maybe 20 of them, and not even the cool artsy ones that you patted yourself on the back about? I know my photographers know what I’m talking about.

        I discovered a better way when my own wedding photographer did things a little differently for our engagement shoot, and since then I’ve implemented this new method into my editing workflow and have saved myself hours of editing. With this setup, it takes me no more than 45 minutes to upload and edit a session. I personally believe this workflow with Photomechanic and Adobe Camera Raw has allowed me to keep my sanity.

        Here’s how I do it:

        Open folder in Photomechanic

        Color code or star the images you don’t want

        Select all and save images as JPEG

        Upload to Pixieset for clients to favorite their number of images

        You edit their favorites

        You do a dance because clients are happy and you’ve saved so much time

        I would just leave them as is and let the clients know you’ll tweak the editing once they’ve selected their favorites!

        Thanks for the lovely article! I think this is a great process! I tend to underexpose my photos, so if I were to use this method, would I brighten to photos before sending them to my clients?
