What tasks do you need the computer for and is it your main computer or secondary? Answer those and we can give you a good answer to your question, otherwise noone can help.

If primary, you should get the 13". And whichever size you go with, make sure you get it with 4 GB of RAM.

If your honest and the photo editing is light the Air is a perfect machine, 13" has a great resolution but get 4GB of RAM.

The MBP refresh coming up will be better suited for video editing and heavier lifting but if it's light the air will be absolutely fine.
