From the dappled tree-lined streets in the front room of a creaky terrace in Sydney in 2011 came the triumphant birth of RAW Digital Lab.
Lovingly delivered by Leisa and Jarred, what came next was a match that could rival milk and cookies, country music and whiskey, koalas and gumtrees- that being wedding photography and the need for a high end outsourcing solution tailored just for you.
Leading the fray both in Australia and across the globe, RAW Digital Lab has always been about originality, high-quality products and lightening fast, friendly customer service. Not to mention their staff have some of the best karaoke singers, line-dancers, wine drinkers and outrageously talented editors on this very planet.
We’re a small business with a big heart and are super proud to be able to work with some of the most beautiful wedding photographers out there while still maintaining the boutique and signature quality that we’re known for.
So come on over and say howdy, we would love to meet you!
It's so nice to meet you
We take on a limited number of new clients each year to ensure that we’re able to keep our standards and quality sky high!
Our team is small and each of our editors work one on one directly with their regular clients season after season to perfect the desired look and feel of their work.
We like to think of it as having all the benefits of working with a personal editor but with the backup and support of a full scale studio.
By choosing to partner with RAW Digital Lab you’ll experience the lightning fast, super friendly customer service that we’re known for as well as a top quality product each and every time.

We get it - getting something quick is fun, but it’s not always possible in our game.
Our clients choose us because of the high end quality of our work and the attention to detail we’re able to achieve by pairing you with the same editor each time. During our peak season from August to December, many of our clients are shooting multiple weddings each week. With our small team this really adds up en masse and does increase our production time.
Fear not though - during this period we always give you a due date for your order so you’re able to plan your time out.

We love the relationships we build with our clients all over the world. We still have most of our clients from when we first started the business back in 2012!
Because our clients tend to stick around for a while, we often have a waitlist for new clients.
If you’re looking for a long term partnership as a solution for your editing we’d love to have you join our waitlist. Waiting times change throughout the year so we recommend contacting us as soon as possible to ensure we can hit the ground running as soon as a spot becomes available.
