We believe that photographers should spend more time behind their camera and less time in front of their computer. However, post-production still remains a very important part of the whole process of creating an image, as it helps to portray the photographer's vision, style and emotional setting. If you’re in search of your own editing style, or if you're looking for new ideas and color solutions - you’ll find our selection of 4 Lightroom Presets for Photographers very helpful.

The idea to create this blog post was actually inspired by the work of our Squaremuse clients. We follow excitedly all their mesmerizing work, and were happy to find out that many of them have presets available for any photographer who needs some help with bringing their ideas to life.
Greg Petersen is a wedding and portrait photographer based in Northern California. He loves shooting weddings that break the mold of common traditions. His approach is very photojournalistic, but first of all he loves telling stories. Check out his presets packages, inspired by the outdoors and adventures. They’re all in dark and moody brownish tones, with just the right amount of contrast - exactly what you need for weddings and in-home sessions.
Anni is a full-time travel wedding photographer based out of Portland, OR. She has been a photographer for over 7 years, mainly shooting travel + outdoor adventures. Last year, Anni switched to shooting weddings full-time. The most important thing for her is to show a couple's love and emotions through her images.
If you have been searching for Lightroom presets that give your photos warm shadows, natural, earthy skin tones, and bright highlights, to stand out and totally rule - you need Anni Graham's Presets!
Kristen Marie Parker is a big promoter of finding out what is unique and special about each of her clients. Her photography is about the heart and the raw emotions behind each shot, which you are able to feel and relate to. Kristen is a bit sarcastic, she’s a homebody and tends to dance in corners at large gatherings, but that doesn’t stop her inward sense of nurturing and wanting to help others. There’s an inner drive to connect with those around her, seeing them for who they are rather than what others want them to be. Kristen has translated that into her photography, documenting people and their interactions to equal what they represent, showcasing the honesty and quiet moments between them.
Her preset is meant to deepen your blacks, tone down your skin tones and foliage and provide a feel that is more cinematic, something that you see in motion pictures.
Twyla is a photographer drawn to the dramatic and emotive vibes. A session with Twyla is wholly focused on taking the time to slow down, appreciate long embraces, the art of discovery, subtleties of affection, and making time to say the words we rarely say. Her desire is to create photographs that don’t just serve as proof that you existed, but show that you lived passionately and loved madly.
We hope these presets will help you experiment with your visuals and empower your creative voice to push your boundaries. And above all, we are happy to introduce you to some of the many talented creatives of our Squaremuse family.
