Sometimes you get all the shots you need in a short amount of time. In this case with Cathy + Will's engagement session it's exactly true! We were racing with the sun setting, the location not working out, and having to find a back up location to fit the look they were going for. Luckily it all fell into place and I shot for a total of 40 minutes (much different than the 2 hours I'm use to for engagement sessions). I downloaded the images and LOVED the set that I ended up with, working under pressure is definitely a plus in my book!

After prepping these images from Helen + Andy's engagement session I realized how much I LOVED this particular RadLab recipe (color toning) of these images, so I decided to share with all of my photographer friends out there!:)

RADLAB is truly RAD and a MUST HAVE for professional digital photographers! Made by our friends at TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS!, this is a tool that will bump your images up to the next level! I'm truly proud to stand behind and be an affiliate for them, because I literally use their product EVER time I sit down to artistically edit my images!

See the recipe I used for Helen + Andy's engagement session below! This is using RadLab within Photoshop (CS5 to be specific...I know, I know, I need to update!).

Now onto the actual engagement session! These two....were totally ADORABLE with one another, I could tell that they not only LOVED each other, but that they were also BEST FRIENDS....what a blessing to have that as a good foundation before getting married!

Love this session and thanks for the recipe. I love RadLab and use it every time as well. I have not mastered the use of their black and white filters though and would love to see those recipes you use if you are so inclined to do another post...also the bright purple and blue on a couple of those photos are really fun, how did you achieve that? Listen to me, I just got greedy didn't I?

What a cute couple they are! Lots of nice, big smiles. I really like how you took so many of the shots off-centre.

From your experience, do clients like the more tonal/saturated photos or tend to stay with the more traditional black & white, etc..?

My clients hire me because they trust me to be the artist and I choose which images are color toned and black and white. I include my "artistic edits" like what you see on my blog along with simple color "proofs" for each client. Make sense?
