“Marissa Gifford’s actions continue to blow me away. Just when I think she can’t outdo herself… she does. The new Holiday Sets have quickly found their way into my workflow. I love how perfect they are run as-is, yet totally customizable if the image calls for it! I guarantee you will find a new MUST-HAVE or two… or 20 from her new sets. Subtle yet beautiful. Thank you for creating such beautiful actions!!” ~ Corinne, Corinne McCombs Photography

“Marissa, these actions are gorgeous and work perfectly on pretty, backlit fall images. They bring just the right amount of pop and warmth to photos. I love them so much and look forward to using them on all of my fall sessions…I cannot imagine needing anything else to make the seasons editing run more smoothly! Thank you so much!!” ~ Allison, Allison Anne Johnson Photography

“The Holiday Action set is absolutely gorgeous, so many tones and options for any editing style! What I love about Marissa’s actions is that you can create just about any look you want. They all go together beautifully; you can use them as a finishing touch on top of your own edit, OR you can create beautiful images from start to finish using the actions alone. Another must have set!” ~ Anna, Anna Hollister Photography

“Actions made perfectly for this time of year?! Yes, please! These were so perfect for the newly (though not all the way) turned fall foliage. The various actions and helpers highlighted the subtle changes that aren’t quite screaming fall just yet. I love that Marissa adds a “try them all” button. It makes choosing the right action for the image easy as can be!” ~ Melissa, Melissa Stottmann Photography

“Marissa’s actions are extremely easy to use, and they really enhance my images without overpowering them. Although they can be customized and adjusted to taste, running them at 100% yields great results and saves a ton of time editing. Clean workflow is really all I need to achieve a good basic edit, and the creative actions add that extra special touch that really makes an image unique. I really, really love them, Marissa!! Thank you for these!” Samantha, Samantha Covert Photography

“Marissa’s new holiday action set is stunning! From a heavy matte to a subtle warmth, I am able to customize each clients photos to their particular session, which is priceless during the busy holiday season, all while maintaining a consistent and gorgeous look to my work that goes perfectly with Marissa’s other actions! In a word: PERFECTION!” ~ Rebeccah, Rebeccah Parks Photography

“These are AWESOME! Your matte set has been on my “to buy” list for awhile now and this definitely convinces me I have to do it sooner rather than later!! My edit took me about 30 seconds! It looked great after just Clean Workflow (100%) and Harvest Holiday Vignette (30%), but I also added Holly (20%) and Snow Day (60%) for a little extra something. I love what Holly does to skintones – so pretty! You did a really amazing job with these, Marissa!” Tanya, Tenth & Grace

“I love that your actions really enhance the photos, rather than drastically change them. Some of the actions you could even use at 100% opacity.” Catie, Catie Ronquillo Photography
