I’m stoked about my new service, Custom Presets! I truly believe in it and to be honest (and a little cocky) there’s really nothing like Custom Presets out there.

⚡️ For the month of August, I’m only offering FIVE Custom Preset spots. ⚡️

I’m really excited to share my love for editing with you. You’ll finally have a signature look you love that makes it much easier to edit! Snag one of five Custom Presets by filling out the contact form on my website. The link is in my About section!

05/27/2020

It’s launch day! The email went out so that makes it OFFICIAL! Now through June 1st, if you buy a custom preset, you get a second FREE preset!

Wanna know what inspired me to start offering custom presets? This before/after video! I thought it was so freaking cool that I had to have a reason to make it. The interactive version on my latest blog post!

If you’re a small business owner and you need a consistent editing style, custom presets is perfect for you! The inquiry form is on my website under ‘Contact.’

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the engagement session for these two!

Fun fact: Paige and Kyle have actually known each other since they were 12! It took an extra ticket at stagecoach for them to reunite a few years ago and it was as if no time had passed at all.

One of the reasons it may take you a long time to edit every wedding is because of your second shooter’s photos. No shame throwing here, but it’s true.

As a private photo editor, I’ve noticed a few things here and there that will help you edit weddings easier with multiple cameras.

1. Hire a second shooter with a similar style.

2. Make plans to use the same cameras settings during the wedding day.

3. Don’t shoot a million photos.

I broke down these three tips more in my blog post if you want to read more about them.

When I first started my business, I used the resources I had at my fingertips.

Invoices were made in Numbers and transactions were documented in Google Sheets - don’t laugh! This worked until it well... didn’t.

I signed up for Dubsado and it immediately improved the way I run my business. I’m much more organized, with everything I need to send my clients in one place.

Dubsado turns three this week so go wish them a happy birthday. If you’re also interested in a CRM software, message me for a discounted code!

I’m not your typical girl. I watch baseball, love the Foo Fighters and I have a thing for classic cars (my dream car is a ‘65 Mustang). I’m a photographer turned private photo editor, but I’ll always be capturing moments in between. I feel very lucky to edit for amazing photographers all across the nation.

I’d love if you said hi and told me one thing about editing you want to improve for this upcoming wedding season!

Confession time. Matt got me a Nitendo Switch for Christmas so that I could enter his video gaming world (although I’m still convinced it was a gift to himself 😂) and I’m hooked!

I’ve been playing Super Mario Brothers after the work day is complete and I totally feel like a kid again. Although here’s another confession for you... I never played video games a kid. Weird, right?

I’m taking the quieter part of this editing season to reflect and prepare for this next year, but let’s be honest - there will be a little Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart thrown into the mix!

I’ve personally always been attracted to humor - after all laughter is the best medicine. I truly think you should find someone that makes you laugh and genuinely smile exactly like this. Life is too complicated to not have a silly partner by your side.

When my husband and I went to go adopt a cat three years ago, we decided an older cat would be best for us. Little did we know, we weren’t going to be the ones choosing.

As we crouched down to pet one of the older cats, six-month-Ziggy surprised us as he jumped into our lap. His cuddles and purrs were obvious signs that he was our kitty.

In an industry that is constantly growing, remember that people will choose you because YOUR story is perfect for THEM.

Dear 2018,

You were one of the most memorable years of my lifetime - the year we got married! I will forever re-play memories from the best day of my life.

You reminded me of the intention that I assigned to you in the beginning of the year: fulfillment. I took a leap and focused on my business, something that I was scared to do, but am ever so grateful for that decision. The support, cheer and love that was shown was absolutely amazing and something that I will pass on in 2019.

Next year my set intention is to flourish.

2018, you have taught me to be more present than ever, and ready to tackle on another year. Thank you for a fantastic year.

Sincerely,
Halley

Redondo Beach Hotel Wedding | Heather and Jose - Blog - Halley Lutz Private Photo Editor

These two decided to go above and beyond at their wedding. Find out what song they chose to wow their guests for their first dance!

Heather and Jose's The Redondo Beach Hotel wedding was about as perfect as you could imagine. There was no doubt that The Redondo Beach Hotel was the perfect location for these two as they said their vows on the outdoor deck, over looking the Redondo Beach marina.

The cutest adventure theme for this little guy's first birthday!

Some BTS of a wedding I edited earlier this year for Whitney Turner Photography. Love how bright and unique this wedding was - like the mini 3D printed Eames chairs that were used for decor!

Comfort zones are my jam. They’re safe, they’re cozy and they’re made juuust for me. —
This past weekend I went salsa dancing. Definitely not in my comfort zone. My palms were sweaty, my heartbeat was racing and you know what? I got over it as I repeatedly counted to try and hit my marks. I can now say that I can salsa dance... well more like I’ve been salsa dancing. There’s still a LOT of work to do.

However warm your comfort zone is, ditch the onesie and try something new. I’m sure you’re be pleasantly surprised what great thing shows up in front of you.

The marine layer slowly crept it, diffusing the light perfectly for a beachy outdoor wedding. It was clear that these two were meant to be together by their infectious smiles, big hearts and love for traveling.

May you two have a lifetime of happiness, you deserve it. Congratulations Heather and Jose!

A client asked me “what is it about editing that you like?”
🖥
“I know...” I told her. “It’s crazy! Most people dread the editing process, but me? Give me ALL the images to cull and color correct.”

I love being with clients photographing them and gaining new experiences, but the truth? I am a shy introvert that loves Lightroom.

My Story

Hi I’m Halley - a photo editor for busy wedding photographers based out of Los Angeles, California. Losing all my family photos at a young age, I quickly learned the value of photography. Black and white film classes in high school led to graduating in 2014 from California State University, Northridge with a degree in Art and Photography. I soon started documenting weddings and family portraits, loving all the people I met all the way.

After three years of being a wedding photographer, I had the realization how much I actually enjoyed photo editing. Switching gears in 2017, I started editing photos for other wedding photographers and I love getting to see hundreds of pretty weddings a year, plus supporting wedding photographers!

I’m a photographer turned private photo editor, capturing all the moments in between. If you would like to learn more, please visit my website or follow my journey on Instagram!
