In this tutorial you’ll learn how to edit an entire wedding using Lightroom Classic from start to finish!

Learning how to edit weddings in Lightroom can be hard. When I was first learning how to edit wedding photography, it used to take me 40+ hours to edit a wedding. I had no workflow or system, and so it was overwhelming.

Over the years I’ve developed a wedding editing workflow that has taken my average editing time down from 40 hours to around 6 to 8 hours… About 8X faster! Whether you’re a seasoned pro looking to refine your skills or a beginner eager to learn, I’ll show you my entire editing workflow and all the tips and tricks I’ve come across over the years on how to edit wedding photos to cut my editing time down by 75% (and give me MUCH better results)
