An extra shot of espresso…

So I am traveling and desperately needed Starbucks.  I was very disappointed to know the nearest one was over an hour and a half away.  😦  Sigh.  So I continue to drive.  I finally reach my destination point and I smell the coffee.  I noticed their prices were significantly higher than the other Starbucks that I have been to [minus airport kiosks] and I called it to his attention.  I guess he could tell I was in desperate need of caffeine so he charged me a WAY lesser price for my Venti Cafe Vanilla Frappuccino, with an extra shot of espresso.  Well my friends he put more than “a shot” of espresso; try 3 or more.  I was wired.  Wired to the point to where I found myself clicking my nails on my signal light controller!!!  Yeah.  Jittery?  No.  Awake.  YES.  I get in bed and still I CAN’T SLEEP!!!  Starbucks dude, I sincerely appreciate the extra shots of espresso and the cheaper price but next time consider that a person may be up all night when they need to get rest!!  Next time, I will rethink that extra shot!  😉 I hope everyone has a great Saturday.  I don’t know about you but I think it’s a beautiful day for a wedding!

Here is a sneak peak from from a wedding I second shot last Saturday.  Tara was a gorgeous bride who created and customized her own designer gown.  Yes you read that correctly but that is another blog post. 🙂

“Marriage is not a noun; it is a verb.  It is not something you get.  It is something you do.  It is the way you love your partner every day.”  {Barbara De Angelis}

Who doesn't love a great giveaway?

Without Lightroom…I would be lost. 😦 Seriously…my editing has been cut in half by LR but I have also fallen in love with LR Presets!  What you do not know about LR Presets?  Are you living under a rock? 4 The Love of Focus is giving away an amazing $75 gift certificate to Amy McMaster Photography’s amazing store! I have tried the AMP’s Serendipity action and it is absolutely lovely. I have also tried Amy’s AMP Squeaky Clean, On the Edge & the Beyond Shades of Gray Lightroom Presets and they are editing favs! They have helped cut my workflow by so much time and enables me to mix my own recipes to create a unique look that is polished! I have nothing but good things to say about Amy’s products and you should definitely go over to her blog, read and go over to her store and check them out!  Like now!  😉

Here is an example of an image I processed using Amy’s Lightroom Presets. They are wonderful, help get that tone curve just right, helps get rid of those shadows and pops your colors!

I simply used Amy’s AMP’s Squeaky Clean LR presets and as well as the On the Edge that comes along with that set for my border.  I did smooth her skin to eliminate some of the redness due to the fact that we were outside in the lovely Texas heat [and humidity] but she was not Photoshopped to look unnatural!  Until next time, I hope everyone is doing well and had a wonderful weekend!  Monday workout here I come! Oh by the way, if you were curious as to how the finished image turned out…here is my final shot of Katriana.  I simply used  Kevin Kubota’s Fashion Passion, as well as his Magic Sharp actions…lovely! Her eyes are simply enticing! 😉
