"Not only are the colors and tones flawless, my editing time has decreased significantly.
Heirloom presets have been everything I've hoped for in a preset collection. This amazing tool has helped me edit my photographs in the most beautiful way and I couldn't be happier with my digital work since using them. Not only are the colors and tones flawless, my editing time has decreased significantly. I cannot believe how easily I am able to match my digital work to my film now. Huge game changer for me and my workflow. I highly recommend them!
"Anything that makes editing faster and easier is a win in my book!
They are amazing! They require very little tweaking and it's incredible how easily they match up with my film scans. I edited the digital portion of an engagement session before the film came in, and I was so happy to see how close the colors and tones were to my film. Anything that makes editing faster and easier is a win in my book!
This could be you....
"They are the closest to a one click edit that I have ever found.
The Heirloom Presets are phenomenal. They are the closest to a one click edit that I've ever found. Marcie has so many customizations within the presets so making adjustments is a breeze. I am a hybrid shooter and these compliment my film so well. I am so excited about these. Thanks Marcie!!!

Currently Heirloom presets are not mobile optimized, though mobile presets are on the horizon!
Heirloom Presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom Classic 7.3 and Adobe Camera Raw 10.3 and newer. We always recommend keeping software updated to the most current available. The presets can be used on all cameras. They have been tested on a variety of camera bodies.
Because of the nature of digital products we do not offer refunds. We are able to offer support and guidance to help you get acquainted with using the presets. It is often a quick tip or fix to go from “I’m not sure this is working?” to “Wow that was easy!” If you follow the tutorials included in your purchase you will be well on your way to beautiful edits.
Proper exposure levels for the entire scene, not just your subject, are most ideal when working with Heirloom. Often called exposing for the highlights. That doesn’t mean you won’t have to correct your exposure, but the most important thing is that you keep all of the data in your image. If you overexpose the scene in order to expose for the skin you might lose a lot of data and have “blown” highlights that you can’t save. If you are trying to mimic a film aesthetic keep in mind that film retains highlights SO well while simultaneously bringing the scene exposure to a nice level. We can’t do with digital what film does quite as well, so we need to first keep our highlights and then adjust the scene in post production.
Absolutely not. We know that wedding photographers work in every lighting situation imaginable. Depending on your preferences, you may use different presets for different lighting situations, but all are adaptable. There are also adjustment tools to help combat some of the issues that can arise from artificial lighting. The ‘correct mixed light’ tool, for example, will aid you in correcting for a situation where you might have natural light coming in through a window and an overhead artificial light turned on. It is always recommended to light your subjects in the best possible way in order to achieve your perfect edit, but Heirloom can still thrive in less than ideal lighting conditions.
This is often the missing link from a preset to a photographer’s style, which is why we have included a custom preset template and instructions to get you started should you want to modify a favorite preset in any way. How to do this is best explained in our tutorial video for customers. Generally speaking, it can be a great way to speed up editing if you are finding yourself doing a repeated set of adjustments all the time.
Creating a film look or matching your film scans can be tricky if you don't know what to pay attention to. In this video training, you will learn how shooting technique affects your film edit, what adjustments to actually focus on, and the order to make those adjustments.
