New Kubota Photoshop Actions

few nights ago--after releasing Meg's wedding gallery online--I received an email from her. She, apparently, was viewing her gallery when she came across a few photos JD captured. And she began to cry. You see, unbeknownst to Meg, Tim surprised her with a diamond wedding band. He placed it on her finger during the ceremony, but she didn't respond. Initially. Because she didn't see it. While I was setting up the group formal, JD was standing off to the side. He captured the moment when Tim pointed out the new ring...and Meg's reaction.

It's moments like these I completely adore. And I'm so thankful to have JD on my team. Here's a few of JD's candid shots processed with my new Kubota Photoshop Actions. I've finally had the chance to sit down and choose my favorites...I love them! You can find these new actions in the Viva La Vintage action set.

Curves bump

I love capturing what we think are just great, fun images and then find out there was so much more meaning behind them to our clients :) I've had something like that happen where I accidentally left a space in between 5 siblings only to find out there brother that would normally be in that spot had passed away 2 years prior....sigh. The mom called me with happy tears & I'll remember it the rest of my life! Keep up the great work you two!   11.29.10 - 12:42pm
