Having spent more than 30 years photographing at the scenic landscapes of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Florida’s west coast, and the mountains of Virginia, Deborah Sawyer is at ease shooting subjects outdoors. Whether taking wedding photos, creating family portraits, or documenting special events, Sawyer's years of experience behind the camera help her capture finely composed images. She uses a 21-megapixel professional digital camera for stills and deploys a high-definition 1080p video camera for videography.

Creating great art requires patience. It's a philosophy Shelly Koziana holds dear during each of her photo shoots. The sky's the limit when it comes to each session's time and number of photos: she takes as many as she needs for as long as she needs until her clients are satisfied. At a photogenic Hampton Roads location, Shelly trains her lens on families, kids, pets, and special events. Before preserving her best work with prints, Shelly edits every image, tweaking color levels until they evoke right motif—from realistic to dreamlike.
Every time Allyn Brown snaps a photo, he’s contributing to a legacy that first began in 1945 when Carlton O'Neal founded his eponymous studio. After training under Mr. O’Neal, Allyn took the reigns of O’Neals Photography Studio with his wife, Kris, some 20 years ago, and today the two continue to practice their mentor’s teachings while incorporating contemporary techniques and tools. The duo specializes in family and senior portraits and wedding photography, using their carriage house studio’s varied gardens and fountains to serve as picturesque backdrops.
A silver-place winner in the photography-studio category of The Virginian-Pilot's 2011 Best of Hampton Roads awards, Kaiser Custom Images earns local plaudits backed by more than 20 years of combined experience capturing memories. In a 3,000-square-foot studio, skilled photographers collaborate with clients to set up the shoot’s themes before snapping a slew of pictures to get the perfect pose of up to six people wearing everyday attire, Sunday best, or matching invisibility cloaks. After choosing the preferred portrait, the studio emblazons the image onto a 5"x7" print and a batch of 4"x8" Slimline cards that personalize festive greetings with themes including winter holidays, Valentine's Day, birthday invites, and more. Photos will be ready about one week after the shoot; patrons with designs for handing out holiday cards to friends, family, and abominable Christmas trees should make an appointment soon, as sessions for Christmas-card orders must take place by December 5, 2011.
