Expanded her business to add 2 associate photographers
Wedding Photographer Leeann Marie found herself becoming overwhelmed with the time she spent in her office working on tasks that were not adding value to her business.
Rather than marketing, generating album sales, and creating relationships, she was working long hours editing. When Leeann heard about ShootDotEdit’s UNLIMITED Plan, she crunched some numbers and realized that financially, it would be crazy to not sign up for it.
With the help of ShootDotEdit, Leeann was able to bring on 2 associate photographers and reduce her time in the office by 60%. She has built the business she envisioned when she began, and she has the freedom to focus on areas to continually scale her business.

Jason and Gina Grubb
Tripled their income within the first year of using ShootDotEdit
Jason and Gina Grubb had a streamlined workflow and had concerns about paying someone else to do something they knew they could quickly do on their own. They also knew that every minute spent in front of the computer editing was time they were not growing their business.
They made the leap to incorporate ShootDotEdit into their workflow – not only did they reduce their editing time from 8 hours to 1 hour, but they saw their consistency increase as well! With their extra time, they started an Associate program and doubled the number of weddings shot. In addition, their income tripled the first year of using ShootDotEdit.
Shoots 50% less and earns 2x the revenue
Wedding Photographer Corrado Amenta was concerned that hiring an expert for his post-production meant that he had to sacrifice quality. He knew he needed a better solution for delivering images to clients in a timelier manner, so he took the leap in deciding to trust an expert with his editing. Immediately, he noticed the impact of ShootDotEdit’s turnaround time, which is as fast as 48 hours. He also noticed that his color corrections were consistent, each and every time.
With the help of ShootDotEdit, he was able to optimize his workflow and decrease his turnaround time from 30 days to 1 week. Because Corrado could focus his time on areas of his business that generated a profit, he is able to shoot 50% less weddings and earn 2 times the revenue.
