Armed with the latest in digital technology, the fine-art portraitists at Photovison Photography preserve festive family likenesses during 45-minute in-studio shoots. Posing troupes sit amid flattering lights, changing outfits mid-session to show off Christmas-themed sweaters or matching elf costumes. After online proofing, select an image to apply to a blizzard of photo cards for loved ones across the country and one 5"x7" print to hang above the mantle. Though not included in this deal, if requested in advance, Photovision Photography can supply a hair and makeup stylist to glamorize grandma or strap wax smiles onto chronically sullen teenagers.
For close to two decades, photographer Carlos Osorio has been preserving family memories at Miami Photo. He has documented more than 400 weddings, and his laid-back, journalistic style has been published in numerous media. Assisted by his wife Sandra, Osorio earned one of WeddingWire.com's Bride's Choice awards in 2009, 2010, and 2011. He turns brides' special days into prints at his own professional lab and converts images into products such as coffee-table albums, canvas prints, or high-resolution vinyl siding. Osorio also captures family portraits, parties, and quinceaňeras, and restores precious photos damaged by the passage of time.

Since starting Blackbird Foto—named Best Wedding Photography Service in South Florida by brides on The Knot—Alisa's lens has zoomed in on weddings from London to California. She specializes in capturing couples' big days in a style that she describes as a blend of fine art and documentary photography, a natural expression as seen in magazines. She might catch candid shots of bridesmaids applying the brides' makeup, the happy couple looking into each other's eyes while walking down the aisle, or the family dog slicing into the wedding cake. But Alisa trains her camera's eye on couples before and after they hit the altar, too, with equally artistic engagement and family portraits.
Cesar Varela never thought of photography as a serious pursuit until his wife became a magazine model. As he observed what photographers looked for in their models, he decided to try it for himself. He gathered his own lenses, cameras, and gear and used his wife as a test subject. At-home successes led him to shoot other models before eventually expanding his client base to include families, newlyweds, houses, and family members wearing house costumes. Though he’s since had work published by magazines, publishing companies, and websites, he feels most at ease shooting individual subjects in a photojournalistic style. In his high-rise studio, he photographs subjects in front of colored backdrops or on a balcony overlooking Miami’s sun-dappled skyline. When on location, he works to incorporate the environment—including water and sand, animals, and building architecture—as each shot's secondary subject, adding dimension without strapping 3-D glasses onto his camera. Believing that subjects’ comfort level shows through any pose, Cesar keeps them at ease by offering bits of easygoing direction and capturing candid shots.
