“The Garden Party action set is so lovely….it is fresh, whimsical, and airy, and gives my images that light, soft feel that I strive to achieve. There are a lot of different tones included in the set, which provides a variety of looks that can be achieved within one action set. They require minimal (if any) tweaks to achieve a great look. If you are searching for an action set to give your images a sweet, hazy, Spring-like feel, look no further!” ~ Samantha Covert, Samantha Covert Photography

I’m so pleased to release this new action set comprised of 15 all new actions created just for the light, airy processing that goes perfectly with the spring weather. These actions are all soft and toned, with beautiful hazes and matte effects to polish off your clean edits. The actions work well with all the greens of spring as well as preserve natural skin tones. But they aren’t *just* for spring or outdoor shooting. Their soft nature lends itself well to soft indoor light as well. Window light is beautifully enhanced and these actions give a soft, peaceful feel to your images.

The Garden Party set isn’t just for spring time, outdoor photos. The soft, hazy nature of these actions lends itself well to indoor window light as well, giving a gentle feel to your work. The response has been amazing for these gentle, light, airy and ethereal actions!!
Angelica: a soft, cool action with blue shadows and medium haze.
Clementine: a soft, warm action that lightens and adds haze
Cloudberry: a subtle matte action with hints of muted pink warmth
Dewdrop: a cool, matte action with turquoise in the mid tones and shadows and medium haze
Earl Grey: a subtle matte action with hints of warm brown undertones – a tester favorite!
Freesia: a bright, haze and ethereal action with purple tones in the shadows and pink in the highlights that is especially beautiful on backlit images.
Lilac: a soft matte action with a subtle pastel lavender tone
Limoncello: a hazy, warm action that can be easily tweaked to decrease the haze to your liking
Mimosa: a wistful, beautiful, almost vintage-toned action perfect for nostalgic images.
Mint Julep: a cool, slightly matte action with a pastel green haze – a tester favorite!
Moscato: slightly pink in the highlights, slightly green in the shadows, this action is somewhat film-like and my personal favorite in the set
Peony: a light, cool action with slightly pink haze
Pink Lemonade: a warm and hazy action, pink and yellow tones work beautifully with scenes with lots of green
Sangria: a warm, pink action, it’s more bold than Pink Lemonade and is especially wonderful on scenes with lots of green
Spring Breeze: a light, ethereal action of ivory haze – simply gorgeous
As always, this set also includes my Clean Workflow action.

“I’m always looking to get that perfect matte/haze look but I struggled to get it on my own – these add the perfect amount of softness and haze without having go in and adjust 8 million different steps! I love that they add that subtle change to your image but at the same time you don’t look at it and go “WHOA, there’s an action on it!”. Beautiful work again!!” ~ Lauren Harris, Lauren Blair Photography
“I love the garden party actions. They are beautiful and perfect for spring/summer images. Your actions are the most used actions I have and I use them on almost every single image I edit. I love that they’re easy to use and don’t completely change the image, but enhance it. Your actions are perfect for my style and speed up my workflow.” ~ Amber Borrell, Amber Borrell Photography
“I think it’s a lovely set of actions. A lot I have purchased or tested previously are very strong and take quite a bit of tweaking to get to me liking, whereas these are fairly subtle but still show the effects well. Perfect for Bridal/weddings and newborns. The clean work flow is the best clean edit I’ve used.” ~ Casey Stanley, Apricot Tree Weddings

Marissa’s actions are not too strong at full opacity, they give just the right amount to enhance the image. I’ve found that Marissa’s actions really compliment my images.” ~ Bonnie Hussey, Bonnie Hussey Photography
“Marissa’s Garden Party actions are so lovely and subtle, and perfect for my spring time sessions. They are beautiful when run as-is, but I liked that I still had control to customize them to my liking. I have not used actions much in the past, but Marissa has converted me and I will be getting more in the future! Thank you!” ~ Rachel McConoughey, Rachel McConoughey Photography
