Years after a wedding or a high-school graduation, photographs invoke cherished memories of these moments in time. According to its mission statement on Brides magazine's website, Stalnakers Photo Studio’s photographers “want you to be able to relive those moments and emotions as if it were your wedding day all over again.” Along with a duo of professional photographers, Kris Stalnaker, the studio’s owner and lead photographer, captures precious moments with candid, playful, and evocative portraits. Stalnakers Photo Studio also offers photo-booth rentals for events including weddings, proms, and reunions with fellow cast members from Suddenly Susan.
With her relaxed shooting style, Suzzi Richardson has spent more than 10 years with her eye behind the camera, coaxing sultry smiles and ebullient grins from even the shyest of subjects. Throughout the course of each private shoot, held within her 1,600-square-foot studio, Suzzi works to make clients feel secure so that they can confidently channel their inner sirens for boudoir shoots, get dolled up for flirty pinup sessions, or duct tape their shadow into a flattering pose during portrait shoots.
Before of many sessions, Suzzi styles hair and makeup and throws open the studio's wardrobe, allowing patrons to peruse a vast selection of clothing, sets, and props. Though her photographic forte rests largely in the realm of pinup and boudoir, Suzzi also brings her diverse talents to bear while capturing shots of weddings and children as well. Once shoots have come to a close, she sets to work retouching the images, erasing imperfections while working to ensure that each subject’s personality still shines through.
Beard’s Framing’s staff encases cherished photos, artwork, and three-dimensional objects in materials ranging from polished wood to leather. Ready-made photo frames ($10+) clasp snapshots in a wood-and-glass embrace, protecting them from wrinkles, stains, and the scratchy nuzzles of sentimental lumberjacks. Lackluster walls can find colorful companionship in preframed artwork and a vehicle for deep self-reflection in mirrors ($50+). Ensconce valuables in custom framing packages ($59.99+), which can accommodate sports memorabilia, or preserve fine art with archival mats and backing boards. Handcrafted frames add a Renaissance flair to photos, utilizing materials such as 22-karat gold leaf to create one-of-a-kind frames.
Whenever she begins a boudoir-photography session, Sherrlyn Borkgren teaches her subjects how to pose and flirt with the camera. If they lack confidence, she’ll help them open up and express their sensual side—a process that includes aiding the hairstyle- and lingerie-selection process. Sherrlyn doesn’t limit her talents to intimate photography—she’s also put others at ease snapping photos for People magazine and European photo studios as well as during photography workshops. In these hands-on lessons, she throws students directly into a project that requires them to apply the basics—such as manipulating manual settings and using natural light—as they learn.
As a husband-and-wife team, Brad Johnson and Jo Cain cover both halves of Digitizing-Memories' skill set. Brad Johnson brings more than 18 years of computer-networking experience, during which he ensured the safety and security of precious data. Jo Cain has been a hobbyist photographer since the age of 15, which, combined with more than 30 years of customer-service experience, perfectly suits the needs of media preservation. Together, Johnson and Cain archive precious memories and important documents, clearing video tapes and pictures from choked storage spaces and opening them up for the storage of DVD jewel cases and broken PC towers. Whether scanning vacation slides or converting film reels into usable digital files, the pair extends the life of memories far past the physical limits of celluloid and paper.
