What makes Lovely Light stand out?

Attention to detail in often overlooked areas such as HSL Sliders, Split Toning and more. It's a delicate balance of exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, tone curves and the like. Leave the technicalities to us while you enjoy a one step edit.

Creamy skin tones? You bet.

Creating creamy, dreamy skin tones in editing is finally a reality with Lovely Light. No more edited away for hours, just to achieve mediocre results and less than perfect skin tones. The mid tones in our preset are brought up just the right amount, each color meticulously dialed in to bring a natural warmth and softness to the skin with just one click. 

Night time edits?

Meet Lovely Night - the night time version of our best selling preset. We know how challenging it can be to successfully edit images from receptions and other events with harsh, artificial light. Use Lovely Night any time you're facing a night time edit, dealing with confusing color casts or an edit that you simply cannot nail down.

Frequently Asked Questions

What program do I need in order to use these presets?

-You'll need Adobe Lightroom. We recommend the Creative Cloud suite.

Who is this preset for?

-Lovely Light is for ANY photographer who's looking for pastel edits with creamy skin tones.

I shoot film. Will Lovely Light fit into my hybrid workflow?

-YES. We're hybrid photographers as well and this preset was developed (pun intended!) out of our desire to better match our digital work to our medium format Fuji 400h scans. You'll notice muted highlights, cool greens and a hint of magenta within our preset. While Lovely Light can act as a standalone preset for a digital photographer, it performs seamlessly for the hybrid photographer as well. 

How do I receive my presets?

-Your presets will be hosted within the member area of our website, which you will receive access to upon purchase. You can always come back here to find them if needed.

How do I know this preset will work for me?

-Trust us - we've been there. We've spent hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on presets that just didn't match our style. We'd be happy to edit 2 RAW files of your choice to see if our preset will be the perfect match. Feel free to email your RAW files to hello@katiemcgihon.com

I'm new to Lightroom and editing in general. Can I still use the preset?

-Yes, you can! We've included a guided installation video tutorial to help get your presets into Lightroom and ready to use. We also include a detailed editing tutorial video in which you can see us edit images live. You can see our exact camera settings and we even share images that are less than ideal. #reallife, friends. 

"I LOVE these presets! They are such a perfect synthesis of the countless ones I've tried in the past! I've struggled to find helpful presets to consistently cut down on editing time, but sometimes it seems like I spend more time adjusting the preset than I do enjoying the final result! When applying these for the first time, they looked shockingly close to what I spent long periods of time laboring over to match my film scans. These presets are my new go-to and I am so grateful for their versatility, neutral tones, and timelessness. If you're looking for a one-click solution that requires minimal adjustment and will leave you with an image that is as close as possible to film, the Lovely Light Presets will be sure to become an instant favorite!"

"I've recently fallen in love with film all over again and Katie's Lovely Light presets will help bridge the editing between my film and digital photos. The presets are so spot on that I've only needed to do limited editing once the preset is applied! They're perfect and I'm so excited to be using them!"
