This post is a product review based on our collaboration with Sleeklens. Opinions are solely our own.

How photos are post produced can completely change the style of your business. While there are a lot of options for photo editing products on the market, we were quite impressed with the tools Sleeklens provided.

Sleeklens’ “Forever Thine Wedding Workflow” Lightroom brushes gave us the ability to easily target areas on an image in need of attention. We were particularly fond of the over/underexposure correction brushes for sessions captured in the harsh noon sun. While we strive to shoot during “golden hours” (sunrise and sunset), it’s difficult convincing clients to wake up/stay up for a 6am/8pm shoot during long PNW summer hours.

Sleeklen’s “Forever Thine Wedding Workflow” Lightroom presets gave us the magic to turn any image into a dream. We were quite attached to the Camellia preset because we’re fond of the vintage feel. Some other favorites include the New Tone and Soft Dream presets. Layer these bases with a one of their beautiful matte presets and then you’ll truly have a swoon-worthy image.

This cute little family was game for an early morning shoot, so that’s what we did. We hit up Burnside Bridge early Saturday morning and strolled alongside the Willamette river. We had to skillfully dodge avid cyclists and runners but we ultimately came out unscathed (whew!).

This family made my first shoot in Portland was quite a joyous one and I’m thankful for the opportunity to work in such a breathtaking city.

Thank you, lovely Jackson’s, for waking up super early and letting us photograph your adorable family. Jake was such a trooper with handling this Vegas summer heat and hiking in sandals! We loved seeing how much joy you give each other and are grateful to be able to capture this moment with you. Cheers to many more years of happiness together!

Kuo_quotelife_1

I have been photographing this little family for the past 3 years (2013 & 2014) and I love seeing them grow; grow up and more in love. The Kuo’s came to Vegas this year and we all got to play in the desert. Apart from running out of snacks to bribe the kids with, sand-eating-incidents, and dramatic tantrum flops, we managed to sneak in a few good ones.
