Like most psychics, Dorene Lee doesn't claim to predict the future, but she can help change it by offering guidance and support through a spiritual perspective. As a psychic energist, she does this through two sorts of readings.

In the intimate, candid wedding images that Sharp Five Photography's resident shutterbug, Rob, takes, newlyweds seem totally unaware of the photographer's presence. It's a remarkable feat, considering that his wedding packages run at least six hours and sometimes last all day. The time Rob spends snapping pictures translates into password-protected online galleries and flash drives full of digital negatives, preserving everything from preparation and nuptials to flower girls unionizing outside the reception. When he isn't documenting matrimony, Rob spends on-location shoots capturing images of engaged couples, little kids, and expectant moms.

Growing up near New York City, Frank Calabritto was in awe of the cubist swath the city’s skyline cut and its massive influence on international culture from a young age. Although initially drawn into a corporate life, he broke free to follow the siren call of the metropolitan images he saw coming out of the city. He began aiming his lens at everything from the frocks at New York Fashion Week to the pensive faces of policymakers such as Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Melinda Gates at the Clinton Global Initiative. Now, 10 years into his career, he takes breaks from photojournalism with portraiture and wedding photography. Whether focusing on the sweat on a politician’s brow or the dimples of a child, Calabritto believes that every click of his shutter is the chance to create a message and carry an emotion beyond a fleeting moment and into the future. This passion for communication helps him craft photographs more than ready to fill photo albums or pamphlets for supercomputers learning to feel.
