Boudoir photography hinges on confidence, but the all-female team at Sugar and Spice Boudoir Photography's private studio knows that sexy photo shoots don't set every client at ease. To ensure that guests feel comfortable, an onsite wardrobe expert collaborates with each guest to create a suitable look. The pro will help subjects look good in everything from a sultry corset or revealing lingerie to a boyfriend's football jersey.
From there, female fashion photographers frame seductive shots inspired by burlesque dancers, pinup models, or the elegance of old Hollywood. When not working with solo subjects, photographers capture images of couples, all of whom are guided through the entire process pose by pose. Afterward, they retouch images, which clients can choose to preserve as prints, digital files, or in handcrafted, customized albums.
Cesar Montada is a firm believer in the old adage that eyes are the windows to the soul. Whether photographing models, expectant moms, or kids, Cesar focuses on his subjects' expressions, from dramatic glances to uncontrollable delight. He brings the same level of detail to weddings, sweet 16s, and other events, which he covers with a mixture of posed shots and candid images. After wrapping each shoot, Cesar preserves his best work for clients with prints and online galleries.
South Florida Photo's staff works well with others. During basic and advanced photography courses, they instruct aspiring photographers in the basics of shot composition and camera functions or delve into the best ways to use various tools, including cameras, editing software, and artfully placed thumbs. The instructors do double duty as professional photographers, and haul their gear on-location during photography services for weddings, family portraits, modeling portfolios, corporate events and headshots.

A Family Limousine promptly escorts clients to their destinations with an up-to-date fleet of luxury sedans and stretch limousines, as well as specialty cars that include a weddings-only classic Rolls Royce and a 55-seat motor coach. At a prearranged place and time, clients step into one of the company's purring swank tanks, each of which is captained by a uniformed chauffeur. In the fleet's stretch limos, passengers can spend their ride gazing at the landscape, watching flat-screen TVs, or lounging in the private VIP room of a Cadillac Escalade stretch. To feel more at home, passengers may request the service of one of A Family Limousine's multilingual chauffeurs, as well as one of its napping grandpas to plant in front of the limo's TV.
Loyalty to digital cameras’ factory settings can hinder photographers shooting in unusual venues. Photographer Paulo Jordao teaches his students to manually adjust their settings to suit their surroundings during hands-on workshops, whose curricula also emphasize lighting, composition, and post-shoot editing. Open to all skill levels, the workshops can expand semi-professionals’ skill sets or aid parents trying to document their tots’ childhoods without adding extensive footnotes to their height chart.
When he’s not teaching workshops, Jordao, along with his wife, Peggy, who is also a photographer, can be found snapping photos of newly engaged couples, capturing sultry boudoir shoots, and shooting videos for special events.
