Husband-and-wife team Robert and Sonia combine two types of life experience to make a truly versatile photography company. Robert spent a decade photographing his travels around the world, including trips to Sweden, Chile, and Hawaii. Sonia, on the other hand, learned about lighting, styling, and posing during her years as a model for such companies as Gap, Reebok, and United Colors of Benetton.
Now, as the faces behind 29:11 Photography, the couple shoots portraits set in the studio or outside at various scenic locations. Flowering fields and graffiti-covered walls serve as backdrops for graduating seniors or expectant mothers. Newborn photo packages follow babies for their entire first year of growth, and wedding shoots follow the bride and groom on their special day, capturing everything from the ?I do?s? to the traditional bride-and-cake dance.
Barbo Productions helps partygoers savor the good times long after the final song has ended. Much like a digital guest book, Barbo?s easy-to-operate video booth records personal messages from guests. Similarly, the company?s photo walls capture goofy grins and vacant stares by letting revelers pose freely in front of themed and decorative walls instead of squeezing into booths. Barbo Productions also offers wedding packages that cover ceremonies and receptions with high-definition broadcast cameras.
When they aren't snapping shots of their own romantic getaways, husband-and-wife photographers William and Schellie focus on documenting the ultimate display of affection: weddings. The duo photograph essential moments of weddings worldwide, from the bride and groom's preparation to their exchange of vows, mixing together both candid shots and poses. Cinematographer Steven Broome accompanies the pair to some ceremonies to capture video. William and Schellie also snap couples during the pop-the-question phase by offering customized engagement sessions.
Though the two only handle weddings, their photo booth fits any event with an open-sided space that accommodates more than 20 guests or one clown car at a time. Besides providing unlimited prints—each of which is ready within 12 seconds—the booth can transfer images to an online gallery and string all the images together as the backdrop for a music video.
A photo booth without walls, Robot Booth can snap and print photos of as many people as you can fit in a frame. The team sets up a picturesque background and patrons can pose with props or just rely on their smiles, then use a handheld remote to snap the photo using Robot Booth's digital SLR.
