An expert portrait and fine arts photographer boasting work that has adorned calendars and television programs, Candice Caballero frames sultry boudoir shots with professional authority. After rendezvousing with Candice at her studio and ensuring that each patron appears on film, subjects swap wardrobe ensembles in between striking seductive and edgy poses. Candice personalizes her approach to each customer and strives to ensure that patrons feel comfortable throughout the entire session. In addition to five or seven skillfully edited digital images, clients receive two 5"x7" and two 8"x10" professional prints, or a 40% discount towards prints to place in frames or on refrigerators that claim they hardly know you.
Alicia Parks values the comfort of the home just as much as the mystery of the forest. She travels to homes to capture domestic bliss in her family portraits, amassing snapshots of subjects in front of Christmas trees and on cozy sofas. However, she also ventures into the woods, where she photographs brides dirtying their dresses, and to the beach, where wedding parties frolic on the sand and ignore the jealous glare of Poseidon.
Alicia's versatility gives clients the confidence to choose their preferred locale for each shoot. Whether she's following sisters through their favorite park or snapping pictures of a high-school senior leaning on his car, she captures easy smiles and a variety of poses. With her retouching finesse, she makes certain colors pop, and she readily produces prints for framing, nestling inside of wallets, or stapling to mannequins' faces in an effort to make them more personable.
Paul Murphy Photography’s trained photographers specialize in the art of the portrait, documenting life with sittings that commemorate everything from pregnancies and weddings to family reunions and high-school graduations. They work in the studio or at outdoor settings and will gladly share the location and clothing recommendations needed to take pictures from good to great. In addition to people portraits, they also shoot nonhuman subjects, such as cars, boats, or horses. No matter the subject matter, they will proudly display their color, black-and-white, or sepia photos in custom slide shows, framed portraits, and on photo bags heavy with old, nonphotographable memories.
As parties rage on in the background, up to eight guests can slip into one of Hot Shot Photo Booth’s booths to have a high-resolution camera document the celebratory mood in the air. A professional attendant stays on hand to make sure everybody is properly huddled into the frame and perfectly lit by the booth's defused strobe lighting. In addition to unlimited photo sessions, customers opting for a standard rental receive prints marked with a custom inscription, a DVD of all photos, and a password-protected online image gallery. Extras can include props, a custom booth banner, and a personalized guestbook with custom decorations, such as stickers and decorative paper. Event hosts can also hire Hot Shots' flesh-and-blood photographer to take entrance shots, arrange group shots, and capture candid shots of partygoers grooving on the dance floor or attempting to bob for fruit in the punch bowl.
Husband-and-wife team Ryan and Angie Bates man the shutters at Ryan Bates Photography, where Ryan draws on 15 years of experience as he snaps images that bring out individual personalities and family dynamics in every shot. Professional lighting shines down on subjects as they say cheese, eat cheese, or impersonate cheese in the boutique studio, and the natural light of the outdoors illuminates on-location shoots held amid trees or at the shore. Captures of candid smiles, playful interactions, and motion shots celebrate timeless family moments, and senior-portrait sessions—viewable afterward on a private online gallery—yield prints worthy of relatives' mantels or wallets. Ryan also occasionally leads basic to advanced workshops, where pupils learn to manipulate their own DSLR cameras with coy winks and promises of mink-lined camera cases.
