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.

Though Marilyn Scavo is more than secure behind the camera, it?s her job to make clients comfortable in front of it. That?s why she goes to great pains to foster a convivial, positive environment during boudoir photo shoots where women can relax and have fun while flaunting their sensuality. Luckily, the shutterbug has the chops to pull it off with her 23 combined years of photography and teaching experience. Since she?s versed in Photoshop, Marilyn expertly retouches photos, and can package images on a CD or in an album, which will give a client?s bunkmate a much more stimulating picture book to read before bed than Curious George Renews His License at the DMV.
