The dedicated framers at Artistic Expert Picture Framing protect artwork, personal photographs, and mementos with a vast array of shapes and moldings that prepare them for display. The framers walk customers through the creative, and often confusing, process, consulting with clients before custom-sizing the frame or shadow box to fit paintings or war medals of any size. Conservation grade materials, such as acid-free archival paper and UV-protecting glass, ensure timeless treasures keep guarded against fading and bleeding.

Since the shop opened in 1974, Frame-O-Rama's team has mastered all sorts of techniques to preserve family photos, works of art, and other frame-able objects. "We've framed ceremonial objects such as christening gowns and shoes, and African walking sticks. My personal favorite was a signed Willie Mays baseball with a signed and mounted print of him playing stickball back in Brooklyn," Frame-O-Rama manager Matt Miller said in an interview with SFGate.

See below for more details on their various techniques.

  • Closed-Corner Handcrafted Frames: Closed-corner frames are Frame-O-Rama's specialty, as the staff makes the frame moulding out of hardwood or gold and silver. They do everything by hand, including carving wood or leafing metal.
  • Leather-Wrapped Moulding: These frames arrive from Peru—Frame-O-Rama's team adds custom touches, such as stitches or cowboy buckles.
  • Shadow Boxes: Pretty much anything that doesn't require refrigeration or frequent human contact can go in one of Frame-O-Rama's shadow boxes. Framing bugs, sports jerseys, and wedding bouquets are just a few possibilities
  • Matting and glass: Frame-O-Rama uses museum-quality materials, including UV-blocking glass and matting wrapped in all sorts of materials, such as linen or velvet.

Looking back, Mischa and Brianne Purcell seem destined to have become photographers: Mischa was bitten by the shutterbug at the age of 8, when a family friend and photography professor first introduced him to the camera lens. Brianne started even earlier—when she was just 7, she put a camera on her Christmas list right when Santa had just secured the rights to manufacture celluloid. All these years later, the Purcells’ love of the art form hasn’t waned. They bring their enthusiasm and smiles to important events in people’s lives, including weddings.

As Mischa puts it in a video on his website, “It’s a true honor to be paid to create art around people’s love stories. It’s the best thing I could ever imagine doing.” This genuine passion comes through in his photographs. To capture the essence of each couple, the photographer thinks outside of the box. Aside from photos at the church, Mischa might have newlyweds pose in front of old buildings, on a truck bed, or simply in front of a bright blue sky. The photographers extend this sort of creativity to other types of sessions. They can photograph families in fields dotted by wildflowers or stay in their studio to carefully capture senior portraits. Mischa also shares his expertise during workshops, which teach the ins and outs of photography and postproduction.

Cheap Pete’s custom-framing services give customers the choice of more than 300 styles of mouldings, five types of glass, and a rainbow of mat colors.

Jonathan Mandel attributes much of his current success as a photographer to the people who gave him his start at 8 years old. There was Mr. King, his photography teacher, who taught him how to develop pictures. And his father, who gave him his first camera and patiently allowed a bathroom in their apartment to become a darkroom. That was a while ago, and yet something he learned early on still lives on in Jonathan's work today: a sense of discovery and play. His clients often credit the visual artist with making his sessions fun, bringing out natural moments, and demonstrating a rare talent for steadying a tripod inside a bouncy castle. Whether capturing happy families for portraits or documenting wedding days, his unique eye for light casts each shot in unexpected, striking tones.
