editing class & wedding preset pack

My entire editing process + all the presets I use for a whole wedding

Class:
Editing can be a pain. I get it. It’s taken me years to get my editing to where it is today, and in this class I share it ALL with you. I’ll walk you through the whole process, from exposing to export, and show you exactly what I do (through videos). I’ll go through a variety of difficult lighting scenarios and show you how I deal with each of them, in camera and in post. You’ll see my camera settings, and all my edits. Check out the list below for a thorough outline of the class!
presets:
Everything you need to edit a full wedding day or couple session. Includes my main preset + 10 specialized versions for drastically different light and tone scenarios. Also, 4 extra presets as an added bonus!
 
 
price:$300 USD

Presets Included:

katch wedding main preset
This is the base for all the wedding presets, and the one I use the most.
katch wedding indoor preset
Desaturated orange tones and lowered contrast for the "getting ready" part of a wedding. It works perfectly for that lovely indoor window light, and I use it for indoor sessions as well!

katch wedding black & white preset
A contrasty black & white preset I use on all my b&w images

katch wedding sunlight preset
Lower contrast in a way that still keeps that pop of sunny days!

katch wedding forest preset
Too much green? This forest preset is great for overwhelming green tones, especially green cast on skin

katch wedding hazy preset
That golden glow is beautiful, but it lacks pop. This preset brings it back! Perfect for washed-out images, or sun flare.

katch wedding twilight preset
Twilight is my favorite! This preset brings out the cool tones for that blue hour magic.

katch wedding reception preset
Receptions tend to have orange cast and over-saturated oranges. This preset tones it down while keeping the romantic warmth of low light.

katch wedding sparkler preset
Very similar to the reception preset, this preset tones down oranges while bringing your focus into the center for that grand exit.

katch wedding dancefloor preset
Perfect for on-camera-flash exposures, this preset brings in ambient light a bit more with lower contrast, while keeping the pop of flash in the center.

katch wedding expired film preset
This is a preset I've used more and more lately, as I shoot more film. It works well for that faded, expired film look!

Plus 4 more presets!

3 campfire presets
noise reduction preset
and how to use them
