Capturing the essence of a city requires time—time to investigate and learn about local landmarks, time to discover hidden nooks and gems, and time to jump from spire to spire on the area’s tallest buildings. Snap Photo Tours affords urban explorers this needed break in day-to-day routines with two information-packed hours that yield dazzling photographic memories that last long after the final flash evaporates into the air.
Peeking out from behind their viewfinders or forehead-mounted etch-a-sketch, tour takers follow the instruction of the company's energized guides, who intersperse facts about passing sights with tips on how to squeeze the most out of every picture snapped along the way. Tour-goers learn about the history that oozes from each street corner in the Gaslamp Quarter, or marvel at the architecture of Balboa Park, where thriving gardens provide colorful backdrops. No matter the tour, San Diego natives and visitors alike walk away more educated about their surroundings and more prepared to immortalize the potential photographs held within.
For years, Divine Grace Capitle-Yengo tried to fit in with the precepts of the corporate world, denying the clairvoyant nature that allowed her to perceive the deeper layers of life. Then, she decided it was time to stop pretending. Today, Divine shares her gifts with others nationally, globally, and inside the Jean Claude Salon & Spa in Hillcrest. She works to help her clients shake old habits and addictions or achieve goals through Hypnotherapy, Reiki, and Energy-Psychology sessions that blend aspects of Western psychotherapy with techniques such as needleless acupuncture. Divine also conducts intuitive readings for individuals.
Like a secret agent, Joseph Stein spends his time traveling the world and passing through crowds almost unnoticed. He leaves not with state secrets but with a trove of candid pictures of brides, grooms, and their courts. On the scene, he blends a photojournalistic style with his knowledge of posed portraiture. That way, families can pick their favorites to preserve in handsome leather photo books, Blu-Ray slideshows, and prints, rather than having to recite their cherished memories to a police sketch artist.
Stein hosts engagement and family photo sessions in a variety of settings. Couples might pose on the cusp of a fountain downtown or before rushing waves at the beach. Toddlers likewise can smile from the comfort of their favorite cardboard box at home.

Carmen Ridenoure's family wasn't surprised when she decided to make photography her career—she'd been staging photo shoots since age 9, with the help of old wedding gowns, disposable cameras, and her sister. Since then she's earned two photography degrees, explored photojournalism, and opened Reaction Photography Studios. In all her work, she says on her website, her goal has remained the same: "to look at ordinary moments and capture them in an extraordinary way." Her portfolio overflows with intimate candid and playfully posed portraits of young couples and newlyweds as well as children, family, and pets. She often shoots on location, framing her subjects in the surrounding woodlands or even gritty industrial settings.
