Steamy coffee at Olea

Our favorite appetizer, flat bread with ricotta, poached pears and greens (Olea SF)

Diyosa with Hans in our magical light stairwell

Above are a few photos that have been sitting in a queue for me to either post here on the blog or on my flickr stream.  I am months behind with personal photos, there doesn’t seem to be enough time process let alone scan prints or negatives. Speaking of which, I plan to do some scanning this week and weekend.  Altogether, we are about a year behind with film scans. LOL!  The trick is which ones to scan first?

Hope you all have been well.

BTW….all these photos were processed with the new cinnamon rose fab presets.

  • BTW, LOVE the new presets…I’ve had mine for a few weeks and finally got a chance to play with all of them.

We had a fun, but rather cold e-session with Amy and Bill this past weekend.  They were troopers and game to do anything, like climb a ladder, lay in the damp grass and pose in the middle of a city street. We are looking forward to their wedding day in July.

Here are photos from the session.

    These are SO AMAZING! I’m so happy you are shooting her wedding!

    The one where her hair is blowing and Billy is in the background looking at her?? OMG, it made me tear up a little.

    Isn’t she the cutest thing on EARTH!

    Absolutely great! The middle of the streets shots must have been exciting hahaha.

  • Jackie says:

    Such gorgeous shots! Can you describe your processing on the 1st and 5th shots? Did you use one of your actions?

  • Karleen says:

    Adore the processing on the first one! was it one of your actions? gorgeous set.

  • cindy says:

    Jenn and Brandon…Thank you!

    Jackie and Karleen……I used my new presets and actions for shots 1 and 5. The preset is Damask and the action is Denim. Pretty sure I used “Dry Mustard” action (with some tweaking) from the Zing collection too.
