Rita Temple, the professional shutterbug behind Temple Photography, strikes a balance between spontaneous, candid shots and artfully arranged composition when photographing her subjects. She makes natural light her plaything during outdoor shoots in which she directs newly engaged couples to kiss against the setting sun or captures kids at play. Temple Photography also dispatches photo booths and attendants to parties where up to eight guests can cram inside the booth and don props before snapping shots that materialize on take-home print strips.
The team behind Eleakis & Elder Photography draws artistic inspiration from what is most important in their own lives: their human and four-legged family members. Roger Ele and his wife and part-time assistant, Joan Stathakis-Ele, founded the studio in 1986; since then, Roger has relied on low-light photography and his love for animals to capture countless families, brides, and beloved pets. Chantel Elder joined the staff in 2001 and became a partner in 2008. When she's not busy in the studio, she can be found cooking with her new husband, spending time in the garden, and hanging out with her two boston terriers. New crew member Mark Long has been a professional photographer for more than 30 years—about as long as he's been married. Though he studied commercial and underwater photography at the renowned Brooks Institute, he now looks no further than his two children and grandchild for a smiling subject.
In addition to snapping pictures of furry friends, the photographers support the Sacramento SPCA and other charitable animal causes. They can turn feline or canine portraits into wall art, a 30-page album, and gift cards, or shred them and weave the strips into a pet sweater. They are also fans of the performing arts: Roger has done work for The Sacramento Ballet and has been the official photographer of Sacramento Opera since 1984.
Wielding a high-tech camera, Lonna Ponce snaps dynamic portraits in the comfort of her studio or ventures out to on-location shoots. The shutterbug draws on an ability to lure emotive poses out of subjects while capturing wedding photos and family snapshots bound for Christmas cards or the syllabuses of robots trying to learn about love.

A former model, Morgan Nichole knows the demands of striking pose after pose in front of the camera. That’s why she strives to keep her clients—from families to children—comfortable and energetic during each of her on-location shoots. Her patient, supportive approach is especially evident during her pregnancy-project sessions, where she meets once a month with expectant mothers to document their changing bodies. The project culminates with newborn photos, which, like Morgan’s other pictures, are distinguished by their simple camerawork and sun-soaked aesthetic.
