In their 3,000-square-foot studio or on-location, the visual-media experts at FineLine Weddings—whose striking, modern images earned a bride’s-choice award from WeddingWire.com—record special moments with photography and videography. Although they specialize in wedding, engagement, bridal, and “trash the dress” photography, their services also include boudoir photography, senior portraits, and a variety of prints, keepsakes, and albums. In the studio, 24 backdrop designs and sets offer customers a choice of settings, and flexible photographers can capture an array of moods including elegant, goofy, artistic, romantic, or hungry for pizza. Clients are encouraged to bring their own music to their photo shoots, or they can select music from FineLine’s satellite-radio system.
After photo shoots, a dedicated staff of professional photo editors touch up all photos, and FineLine Weddings guarantees that wedding photos will be ready within eight weeks of the wedding date. To complete momentous days, FineLine also offers wedding DJ and photo-booth-rental services.
SweetPix Photo Booths’ staff members install, prepare, and dismantle portable picture studios in which revelers can snap up rectangular memories. Unlike traditional photo booths, the picture chamber is amply sized, enabling casual poses and creative reenactments of iconic mug shots. Create instant party favors by capping creative posturing with sparkly fedoras and firemen's helmets. Party planners can also commemorate the festivities by stamping each photo with a logo, a printed message, or the subtle smell of musk. A knowledgeable assistant stands watch, aiding in the birth of infant images and facilitating the continuous flow of unlimited prints throughout the four-hour rental. After the event, ocular alchemists conjure a flash drive filled with every image, compiling grins, pouts, and background apparitions into a thumb-size medium.
Few people spend their days attending bar mitzvahs and corporate picnics, but The Entertainment Playground’s staff works both circuits. The event-planning company can create parties from the ground up or augment them with equipment and staff, freeing up hosts to spend more time shaking their presents. The company’s inflatables run the gamut from bounce houses to outdoor movie screens, and fog machines and strobe lights add energy to dance parties or at least make the boring people harder to see. Revelers can pile into photo booths to create instant keepsakes, or climb aboard mechanical bulls for a very in-the-moment experience. A team of entertainers complements the attractions by delighting onlookers with intricate balloon art or classic magic tricks.
SeniorPhotoSession.com immortalizes high-school graduation memories with carefully composed senior portraits. The Senior Share portrait package endows graduates with a one-hour photo session, which can take place both inside and outside of the scenically located studio, or at a location within 25 miles of the 21074 zip code. Seniors can pose in up to three different outfits, as well as their caps and gowns, allowing graduation regalia and adult-size footie pajamas equal time to shine on the mantelpiece. Shots are available for inspection immediately after the session, and portraitees can choose their favorite photos for complimentary digital touch-ups. An 8"x10" unit is $25 and can comprise a single 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or eight wallet prints. The $50 credit can be used toward any number of prints, with discounts available for purchases of multiple units. Photos are ready for pick-up in about a week, leaving plenty of time for new graduates to find a job, start a family, and cash out their 401(k).
