Sleeklens Review

Recently a representative from Sleeklens approached me to do a review on some of their brushes and presets for Lightroom.

I have finally (after this crazy Christmas Season) have had the chance to work on some pictures for the review.  I have to say I am SUPER happy with the results I have achieved with these presets and brushes (didn't use the brushes in this set) but I was playing with them, felt they were not needed here......

I was given the Strike a Pose workflow.  Here are some samples of my photos using the Brushes and Presets.

You can find the website here Sleeklens  and the  Strike a Pose  workflow here. I know I want more of them!  You should go check them all out, what a time saver, and a picture saver as you will see below!  I took a horribly over exposed photo to see what I could do and well you be the judge.

Sunshine Valley Christmas Engagement

A few weeks before Christmas I was asked about an engagement shoot up in the snow.  I of course was so excited to hear more.  The client was hiring me as a Christmas Present for her daughter Sonia and soon-to-be son-in-law, Todd.  The shoot was to take place in Sunshine Valley, about 15 minutes outside of Hope, BC.  

After talking with the client more she advised there was only a 2 day window to take the photos. We decided on January 2nd, and just before that we got a huge snowfall....HOW PERFECT.  

I headed up about 45 minutes early to check out all the spots we would be shooting, we only had a half an hour....I wanted to make sure we got in lots of pictures quickly, not only because of the time crunch, but it was COLD.  I brought my ear warmers, hoodie, winter jacket, and fingerless gloves.....(for the shot i left the gloves in my truck and didn't want to stop to go get them)  WE were FREEZING.  Sonia's (the bride to be) eyes were watering (as were mine) from the COLD, COLD, COLD air.

They had blankets, Green Tea, and were fully prepared for this.  Sonia and Todd are so adorable.  I asked him to whisper in her ear....but she couldn't hear him, she had ear covers hidden under her beautiful blonde hair. I had not noticed until then.  It worked, cause it made them laugh and enjoy the moments we shared.  

They will be getting married in March at a Ski resort in the USA.  How beautiful.  This couple had one of the most pure innocent loves I have had the honour of photographing.  I truly wish them a a lifetime of happiness.
