What is the Signature Finish Service?

Isn’t editing an image and the Signature Finish Service the same thing?

Not really. The Signature Finishing service we offer is different from simple photo editing. When a photo goes through our Signature Finishing service, we apply corrections to specific areas of the photo individually, such as removing litter, facial acne, special effects, or creatively adjusting the image. This service ensures that the final images are of the highest quality and unique to our brand.

While many photographers can edit photos, most don’t offer this level of finishing because it is time-consuming. However, it is important to do so because camera companies expect some level of correction to be applied to images. You may have noticed that photos straight-out-of-camera can look plain and unattractive, lacking the desired color and “wow” factor. Editing helps, but our signature finish service gives our images that wow factor.

Is this service really necessary and worth the extra cost per image?

In short, that’s up to you. While some of our clients have been satisfied with images that have only gone through our editing phase, we highly recommend our Signature Finish service. The adjustments we make during this service take your images to the next level, making them truly stunning.

It's important to consider that these photos represent your memories, and you'll likely keep them for many years. You may even pass them down to future generations as a way for your family to remember you. With that in mind, wouldn't you want all of your photos to look their absolute best 20 or 40 years from now? By investing in our Signature Finish service, you can ensure that your photos will stand the test of time and continue to look amazing for years to come.

What does this service look like?

During the Signature Finish service, we enhance your portrait in several ways that give it a polished, glowing look. These enhancements include focusing the visual center on you, adding warmer tones, and increasing the "glow/light" in the photo.

If you look at the examples on this page, you'll see how we customize the corrections for each photo based on its unique characteristics. These Signature Finished photos represent the pinnacle of our brand at Adam and Claudia Photography.
