Family Reunion in Sunny Las Vegas – the Jones Family at The Westin at Lake Las Vegas

April 3, 2017 | By | No Comments

Even though I really don’t advertise family reunion photography on my website at all (other than the occasional blog post) I get regular requests for it. I was so very happy to meet the casual and good looking Jones family out at Lake Las Vegas this morning for a quick studio-lit formal / casual family portrait session. I hope these photos fill up their walls and computer desktops for the rest of time, and gives them warm feelings every time they see ’em.

Album Images & Wall Prints get extra special love and attention. BEFORE vs AFTER

BEFORE & AFTER - Images Bound for Albums and Prints Get Extra Special Advanced Editing - STEVEN JOSEPH PHOTOGRAPHYWhile I personally touch, edit, tone, crop, straighten, color correct, tweak, massage and ZINGify every single image that I deliver to my clients, I do almost all of this work in every photographer’s favorite Frenemy, Lightroom.

I do not and cannot take most images into Photoshop for advanced editing, as I’ve done on the above image, as it would slow down edits terribly, further delaying the time between our shoot and the delivery of images. I already take longer than I’d like – promising 6-10 weeks. Doing advanced Photoshop editing every image would probably double that time.

I call Lightroom a Friend because it is the super streamlined way to professionally process thousands of images at a time. It is probably the single most important piece of application software a photographer depends upon.

This is why Lightroom is the Frenemy of every photographer who edits his/her own work.

SO, the moral of this story is, one of the many benefits of ordering an album or wall print from us is that your gorgeous images get even more advanced, super personalized custom editing before they go to print.

And who doesn’t want that?
