I just wanted to give an update to all couples who are searching for your wedding photographer…1) I would so love to be that person and 2) I only have about 5 more dates/availabilities for weddings in 2010.  If you are having an amazing DIY wedding or are getting married in very unique venue, i would love to work with you on a special pricing collection for you!



If you are a client, this part of this blog post is her to show you the before and after product, but it is mainly for the photographer friends :)

I don’t know, maybe it’s the artist in me, but I love the artistic edit.. I love making images look fancy and fun and perfect.  I have been getting several questions as to what my processing is like, so i thought I’d show some before and afters and share some action recipes!  Before i list them out, I do want to say that my raw conversions make a huge difference in the outcome of my images.  The images on the left are basically straight out of the camera, except for some exposure tweaks. And, i only use Totally Rad Actions to keep my look consistent and clean.  I will use only one color and one black and white recipe for each wedding or shoot so that an album layout will look clean and consistent!
