Andrew Scheimer’s versatile portfolio captures the most memorable moments in a person’s life. From behind the lens, he quietly snaps away at babies doing cute things like sleeping, smiling, and solving a Rubik’s cube. Senior portraits mark a giant accomplishment during teenage years, and wedding photos cement special moments from that day.
Jay Guttveg has honed his craft photographing well-known subjects that have included presidents and entertainers. Now at the helm of Creative Focus Photography, Guttveg specializes in portraits and commercial shots, as well as real-time shooting at weddings and corporate events.Creative Focus’s four branches operate relatively independently, based on the understanding that weddings and corporate events require different approaches to avoid candid shots of CEOs gazing tenderly at their podiums. Situated at the end of a winding brick path, the studio fosters a relaxed mood in subjects, eschewing long waits and playing tranquil music to result in memorable, distinctive portraits.
The skilled soul capturers at Elegant Occasions will coax out dormant smiles and smoldering eye contact from customers with a 30- to 45-minute in-studio session. Your skilled photographer will coax out the playful grin that attests to your hilarious onstage antics for a fun headshot or enhance the poetic rhythm of your unpublished novel with a soulful author photo. After you do your best tiger impression before the lens, the snazzy snap shots are posted on a personal website, where you can conveniently view the images before hammering them to the neighbor’s door like the Ninety-Five Theses. Additionally, a professionally mounted 11”x14” portrait immortalizes mugs while providing evidence of retina ownership. Call to schedule a session before staring admiringly at your likeness taped directly to the refrigerator.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
