Photographer April Cullett understands the importance of color, placement, and collaboration—she used to be an interior decorator before she opened Studio Gagliano. Nowadays, her eye for making things look their best influences her contemporary style of wedding photography and family portraiture. Her portfolio showcases a selection of black-and-white and color images, as well as a recurring technique, the side-by-side photo, which places multiple poses next to each other to create one memorable image. A majority of Cullett’s work is backdropped by city and rural landscapes, as well as patterned sheets in her naturally lit photography studio, and her collaborative approach produces both posed and spontaneous photos. To keep the collaboration going, Cullett invites her clients to the studio following each session to view a slideshow of the photos and select the best ones for placement on a private online gallery.
