the presets i use for ABSOLUTELY everything
My editing style has changed + evolved quite a bit over the course of my career. But for the past few years, I’ve created (& perfected) a consistent aesthetic, vibe, and overall tone to my photos that help me give my clients a beautiful + consistent gallery.
Inspired by terra-cotta hues, these
presets invite a more romantic + intimate FEEL.
Peachy undertones. Smooth, milky whites.
Consistent editing for any lighting situation.
Since this is my first color preset pack to release, I didn’t want to hold anything back. I’ve included every single preset that I use and tweaked them in a way where they can be used on an array of different lighting situations, landscapes, skin tones, and shooting styles. The main problem I see photographer’s struggle with is finding consistency throughout their portfolio. With these presets, the base of each is the same - ‘the one preset’ - and then I’ve made tweaks to each so that any + every type of image has a preset. From sunrise to moonlight, your images will be cohesive with these babies. Each preset is consistent to my current aesthetic + portfolio - @melissamarshallx.
mm x THE ONE
My go-to preset. This one is the foundation of my entire editing workflow. The slightly muted highlights, smooth contrast, adjusted tones + a smidge of added warmth keeps my portfolio consistent and truly works on pretty much any lighting situation. Depending your shooting style, the only adjustments you should have to make will be your white balance + exposure/contrast!
mm x the other one
As the name describes, this preset is my other popular go-to while editing (really becoming my favorite though). It gives the same vibe + colors that ‘the one’ gives, but adds warmth where needed and blends all the tones together in the best way. Depending your shooting style, the only adjustments you should have to make will be your white balance + exposure/contrast!
mm x THE GOLDEN ONE
With added warmth, this one glows in all the right places. Keeping true to MMX aesthetic, this ones adds warmer temps where needed, some stronger contrast, and really saves your brighter images. Depending your shooting style, the only adjustments you should have to make will be your white balance + exposure/contrast!
mm x THE moody ONE
This is a fun bonus one. I don’t use it often, but sometimes a little extra mood is what a session calls for. This preset brings life, vibe, and some serious edge to your photos. It’s fun to try this one out with close-up in-home sessions or really epic sunsets. Depending your shooting style, the only adjustments you should have to make will be your white balance + exposure/contrast!
mm x THE BLUE HOUR ONE
Saving the colors that you naturally lose during blue hour, this preset brings back the warmth you need in all the right places, while still saving a little bit of that blue. Just adjust your white balance + exposure, and you’re good to go.
mm x the AMBIENT one
This preset is perfect for receptions, candlelit or twinkle-lit ceremonies, sparkler exits, or anywhere there’s artificial light. If anything needs to be adjusted, it’ll just be the warmth or exposure - otherwise, this baby is one-click-and-done!
mm x The flash one
I created this one specifically for flash photography. Whether you point direct flash, bounce your light, or use off-camera lighting, this preset will work with any of them!
