Fusion Photography specializes in artistic and organic fine-art portraits ideal for senior pictures, business headshots, and photos of brand-new babies. A one-hour photo session begins with a preshoot consultation to forge a common vision between subject and photographer (a $50 value), freeing the shutterbug to pursue mantle-ready images set against the in-home feel of the Fusion Photography studio. After capturing wild light and taming it with practiced technique and minor touch-ups, Fusion Photography traps customer-selected shots in two 5”x7” prints (a $64 value) and loads 10 retouched, printable images on a CD (a $400 value) ostensibly for posterity, but actually as fodder for dummy VIP passes to exclusive gatherings of high-flying librarians.
At Moments Photography, seasoned shutterbug Lori Reeder combines top-notch picture-snapping skills with professional photography equipment, capturing images of everything from babies to blushing brides. With this deal, you’ll get a basic photo session ($45 value) in one outfit at Lori’s well-lit studio—perfect for immortalizing the shining smiles and model-imitation poses of your family or child. After the images have been frozen in film, the raw photos will be retouched and distilled into a video slideshow and mini proof book, offering up the purest essence of photogenic presence.
Morgans' Fine Art Photography's trio of intrepid photographers tame free-ranging images of families, expectant mothers, children, and high-school seniors with clicks from their clever cameras. Hordes of up to 25 pose proudly, minus the interference of wind or the unintentional beard of bees, inside Morgans' 8,500-square-foot studio, or decamp to the adjoining portrait park for a face-flattering bath of sunny natural light (a $75 value). Groups can also gather for a custom-picked on-location shoot at environs within 25 miles of the studio. Following the session, the studio’s team will polish raw visual ore before transferring it to several physical and digital surfaces. Use a dozen note cards (a $35 value) to jot down birthday reminders, keep avatars looking shipshape with 10 Facebookable images (a $39 value), or employ the 11”x14” print (a $239 value) as a visual aid during debates on the line of succession for dad’s title as King of the Barbecue.
Allen Jones has worked as a wedding photographer and "wedding photojournalist" in the Louisville area since his studio opened in 1992, when weddings were invented. A member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and the Professional Photographers of America, Allen specializes in family, maternity, individual, and boudoir photography for couples who want to give each other a gift that can be used privately to spice up a romance or publicly to sink any future political ambitions. Even when not commemorating a major milestone in life (getting engaged, getting pregnant, graduating high school, placing in the regional knitting finals), a professional headshot can further the careers of actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, spontaneous combustionists, and other performers. Whatever reason you're saying cheese, Allen Jones will tailor your photo session accordingly. Afterward, he'll go through each shot with you and help you pick out the best one. After Allen finishes giving it a professional touch-up, you'll take home three prints.
Certified with the Professional Photographers of America, Shelley Rassenfoss will meet friends, families, or individuals on location or in her studio for thoughtful, custom-photo shoots. Located in Shelbyville, Shelley helms a full-service, 2,000-square-foot studio that can be tailored to clients' needs with hand-painted canvas backgrounds, windows for natural light, and a simulacra of the interior of the Starship Enterprise made out of dried multi-colored pudding. After shoots, resulting photos are uploaded to a private viewing room from which clients can select the five images they'd like have printed. To ensure satisfaction with their choices, clients also receive professional advice on portrait selection. At the end of the experience, mantles and oversized wallets can find a renewed sense of purpose while grasping an 8x10", two 5"x7", and two 4"x5" prints.
Photographer Travis Salisbury’s two favorite subjects are people and landscapes, which makes him a fitting match for capturing the curves of the human form during boudoir shoots. Travis sets up shoots in a modern, turn-of-the-century condo or at his clients’ homes for photos imbued with a personal element that only reclining on one’s own coffee table can provide. Clients slink in and out of their favorite lingerie, tantalizing their partners with the implications of what lies beneath. Once the shoot is complete, Travis returns to the studio to finish and retouch each photo to create a gallery of shots in sepia, black and white, and other finishes that help set a unique mood for each pose.
