Graduations, engagements, weddings, and senior proms––these events all happen regardless of the presence of a photographer, but they're made better by one. The photographers at FotographyWorx Studios know this, which is why they arrive at memorable occasions to capture fleeting moments such as a sweet glance between newlyweds or the pinning of a boutonniere onto a donkey. They also help savor special life events by snapping maternity and family portraits inside their welcoming studio or at clients' homes.
With your Groupon casting natural light onto your face, travel to her studio or have Tamela Kemp travel to your home or an aesthetically pleasant location of your choosing. Over the course of 30 minutes, you'll be posed and captured from every imaginable angle. Make two wardrobe changes to aptly demonstrate your dualistic nature, a facet also reflected in Tamela Kemp's mix of black-and-white and color images. After the shots have been snapped and digitally flaired, you'll receive an electronic file of the best 25 images to preserve or print as many times as your second Time Lord heart desires. This session is an excellent way to obtain professional headshots, a necessary element in the careers of actors, dancers, comedians, burlesque performers, and medical test subjects, as well as an ideal way to commemorate an engagement, graduation, or the purchase of a new horseless carriage.
The photographers at Clapp Studios categorize their snapshots into two themes: LoveStyle and LifeStyle. LoveStyle shoots capture couples at the height of their romance, flashing the camera as lovebirds get engaged, take their vows, or carve their initials into the side of a police cruiser. Documenting the next stages of couples’ relationships, LifeStyle photos tell the stories of growing families with elegant, tasteful shots of expectant mothers, sleepy-eyed newborns, and grinning children. Clapp Studios also helps keep romance alive with flirtatious boudoir photo shoots, which gussy up subjects beforehand with makeovers from a makeup artist.
Even after amassing years of experience in portrait, product, and event photography, Dominique J. Allen manages to keep her work playful. As the owner of Create It Photography, she's just as comfortable capturing the intimate behind-the-scenes moments of a wedding as she is snapping action shots on the football field?even in the middle of a game. She also frames individuals and couples in front of chic urban backdrops, such as city alleys, historic doorways, and CEO's parking spaces. Allen always retouches each digital image after a shoot, balancing light and shadow or adding injections of brilliant, saturated color.
