FAQ | Photoshop Actions

totally-rad-new-banner

I get about 7 emails a week from other photographers asking what type of actions I use to process my images.  Honestly, I try to use as little as possible and do most of my creative stuff in the camera but, when I do use actions it is almost exclusively Totally Rad Actions.

Here are a few of my TRA recipes that I LOVE!

New Look…New Name…New Logo!

See anything different??  Finally after 7 years as Ultimate Image Weddings I decided to change it to my name.  Pink and Black are my favorite colors so I kept with the same colors but I think the new logo is more ME :)

2009 Prices

2009 is almost here, and with the new year, I’m launching new pricing! This new price list goes into effect as of January 1st, 2009 and is basically a 15% increase. I will be honoring the current price list until December 31, 2008 – if you want to book at those rates, contact me right away so we can reserve your date! You don’t have to pick your package yet – to hold your date, and lock in the 2008 prices, I require a deposit to reserve your date and a signed contract — you can choose or change your package up to 3 months before the wedding date. I look forward to the new year and all the adventures and moments still to be captured……Smiles :) Tab

Showing Off my CANS!

A group of photographers from around the country are participating in a cause called Comments for Cans! Basically everyone who blogs knows how awesome it is to get comments! So every time you make a comment on my blog from now till December 20th I will donate a can to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. A special thank you to Chris+Lynn for coming up with this wonderful idea.
Feel like spreading more love….here are more photographers that are participating: Think!Photographics, BEBB, Anne Ruthmann, Christine Tremoulet Photography.

Second Harvest Food Bank


Every year around Fall when I was a property manager (along time ago) I use to have the residents bring in can foods to give to the Second Harvest Food Bank. I would offer a raffle of some kind and it worked out really well. I use to take the food to the warehouse and was in awe of all the food they had and how they would tell me that this isn’t nearly enough. So now it is fall and I started thinking about the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orlando again and what I can do to help……So if you donate ANY amount to the Second Harvest Food Bank through their website and shoot me an e-mail saying so by October 31st I will put your e-mail in a raffle. The winner (after I confirm with SHFB that you did give) will receive a one hour shoot of any kind (Trash the Dress, Bridal, Engagement, Family, Maternity) and a $50.00 Gift Card to Darden Restaurants (Total Retail Value $300.00). The winner will be drawn on Halloween!!

A special thanks to Greg Higgerson, VP of the Second Harvest Food Bank for getting back to me and allowing me the use of your company logo. I hope we can help this wonderful company out and give to those who don’t have even the basic necessities.

Sorry :( Bad blogger

I have had a few e-mails and I am really sorry I missed “Totally Cool Stuff Thursday” I have been really sick :( I will continue it next week and I promise to find something really cool.
I was able to make it to the “Free to Succeed” seminar last night with David Jay! He was so amazing and gave me goosebumps with the passion in his voice. I met up with my star studded Flickr Chics Group and as always had a absolute blast. Here are some photos from the day…

Photographers

Photographers run into each other in such a small town as Orlando and because I am also a Day of Coordinator I have had the pleasure of working with Nikki Hartman. In my opinion she is very sweet and a great photographer. There was an incident on Nikki’s blog in which a photo was used from another photographer on Flickr. Nikki has posted a public apology and after a long talk with Nikki I believe it was an accident and not intentional. I want to apologize to her for jumping to conclusions about this situation as well. I am really looking forward to some upcoming events we will be doing together and will be sending my positive thoughts her way.
