Aaron Zeller understands that great photography goes beyond pretty scenery and broad smiles—it’s about telling a story. He founded AJZeller Photography in 2009 as a way to document genuine emotions—from a young couple’s love to a family’s joyful new addition—unsullied by contrived poses or smiles enlarged with clown makeup. Aaron specializes in what he calls Beloved photography, a style that strives to capture the raw, unfiltered love of a couple through real-life interactions instead of coached emotions. He offers wedding, portrait, and engagement photography as well as a unique program—A Life Remembered—that records the passing of time through yearly photo sessions, discounted prints, and hourly polaroids of a grandfather clock.
Suzie DaSilva is a hunter of honest moments. Both inside her studio and at client-chosen locations, she strives to fit familial affection, infant laughter, and blossoming romance into her photos. To better preserve the sentiment behind the smile, she encourages spontaneity in her subjects, who range from children to high-school seniors to wedding couples. She also creates collages, blending action shots with portraits to capture clients' favorite hobbies or the dynamic of their all-clone soccer teams.
With eyes and lenses trained to translate fleeting moments into lasting imagery, Deyo's Photography's snapshooting sharpshooters capture memorable expressions during each session in the well-equipped studio. Over the course of each sitting—which typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes—pose holders place their stamp on posterity as Deyo's camera crew preserves slices of life using a means more efficient than costly oil paintings or pressing subjects in wax paper. Choose a family or individual session to showcase singular singles or populated clans, or opt for a children's session to capture the innocence of youth before it swiftly melts into teenage angst and hormone-driven lycanthropy.
You only have to see their photographs to know that Omaha Wedding Exposures' photographers love going to weddings. Looking through the lens of experience, they adeptly capture everything from the grand views of the wedding party to the twinkle in the groom's eye when he first sees his bride.

From inflatables and games to magicians, Bryan Hill and his team offer a wide range of entertainment options that can liven up any soiree, as they have for more than 30 years. Inflatable obstacle courses test the endurance of kids, adults, and retired American Gladiators, and a mechanical bull tries to throw daring riders. Colorful carnival moonwalks set the mood, and live performers include airbrush tattoo artists, magicians, and a hypnotist. When the team is not enhancing parties with their colorful equipment and live shows, they’re hard at work repairing, tuning up, and installing new hardware on clients' computers and laptops.
