Happy Friday!! Today I am so excited and honored to be sharing my personal thoughts on a product for photographers.  I received an email a few weeks back from a wonderful company called Sleeklens.  They offer workflows and presets for photographers, and they have a workflow dedicated to wedding photographers!!
