Joshua and Christina Lethbridge Norland Bed and Breakfast Wedding Album

I love big chunky albums like this! I could barely lift the box with this Norland Bed and Breakfast wedding album when the courier delivered it to me :) Christina and Josh had such a beautiful wedding at the Norland this summer and I loved going through the photos they selected as their favourites. The album beautifully covers the timeline of their day and all the happiness they experienced with their children, family, and friends.

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.

Sleeklens Strike a Pose Portrait Workflow Review

Sleeklens review Strike a Pose Portrait Workflow sample edits

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Sleeklens Strike a Pose Portrait Workflow, which is an awesome collection of Lightroom presets and brushes designed for portrait editing. Using only the workflow and tools in Lightroom, I was able to fully edit my images without needing to open them in Photoshop for refined retouching (as I normally do). I was really impressed by the subtlety of the skin softening tools, make-up enhancements, and other effects that were included. Almost every preset worked great with my images, which comes as a surprise as presets are usually too extreme and need a lot of tweaking to make them work. These ones looked great as they were.

The make-up brushes were definitely a highlight of this set for me. The “add shine to lips” brush is probably my favourite, which added a very natural looking gloss to the lips. The two blush colours were also very natural and can be tweaked if the colour isn’t quite right, but I loved them in their default colours as an accent to the blush already on the model’s face.

I pulled up a few of my photos of Megan from this summer to see what looks I could achieve using only the portrait workflow. I started with images straight out of camera and played around with the presets on my own, rather than following the product’s recipe list.

Jori and Shawn Castle Mountain wedding album

I love how this wedding album turned out! Jori and Shawn had their Castle Mountain wedding last summer and their Modern+ album perfectly captures the highlights of the day. With one of their main wedding colors being gray, the charcoal leather spine and pages complemented their photos. I just had to share some highlights of the book!

Sophia’s mom wanted to combine a few years’ worth of her photos to show how much she has grown and an album was a perfect way to do this! It was so fun to revisit these photos and see how much Sophia has grown over the years. This album is a 5×7″ Modern Album with 20 pages and will make such a cute keepsake for their family.

Lethbridge portrait photography images on USB with wooden box

I’m excited this year to be offering a new way to receive your digital files… custom wooden USB boxes! Now that so many computers are being produced without CD-roms, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for wedding couples and anyone purchasing their digital images from their sessions to access their photos afterwards.

This new box has an image etched in the lid and the USB drive itself is wood with custom engraving. It’s such a great keepsake for your images when you prefer digital!
