Photographer Patrick Cox channels his obsession into each static narrative he helps to tell. During a one-hour outdoor sitting session (a $125 value), clients can dawn two distinct outfits to support their story. After an hour of snaps, flashes, and smiles, clients then set up a proofing time with Patrick, typically occurring within two weeks of the photo session. To commemorate the occasion, an 8x10 print (a $50 value) is included, giving future generations a glimpse into the not-so-distant past, when photographs were tangible and the Internet was purely imaginary.

The brother-and-sister shutterbug team at Related Images customizes each photo shoot to the individual or group, capturing fleeting moments with experienced aplomb and commemorating them in high-quality, retouched prints. Customers begin at the portrait emporium’s new studio location for the half-hour shoot, striking myriad poses with their significant other, offspring, or treasured friends. The photogs set camera posers at ease with a personable approach and willingness to tailor each session to the client's likes, moods, and tendency to cast gremlin-shaped shadows against the studio backdrop.
Forrest Briggs claims the South as his home, and indeed he grew up and attended college there. As a photography student, he earned admission into several galleries and juried exhibitions, but his post graduate work honed his eye. He travelled the world, learning to speak fluent Vietnamese and becoming trapped in Nepal during the 2006 coup d’état, all the while documenting his journeys through his camera. The temporary expatriation sharpened his skills, helping him excel at photographic composition, natural lighting strategies, and more abstract concepts such as how to make photos “pop.”
Now, as a photographer and teacher, he passes along these lessons to a new generation of shutterbugs, while lending his eye and skill to clients in search of classic portraiture and boudoir shoots. He also has an eye for shooting martial arts action, working behind the scenes at mixed martial arts events and even pulling a stint as the personal photographer of Cheryl Murphy, nine-time US Nationals Karate Champion.
EmilieCarol, the photog behind EmilieCarol Photography, specializes in snapping candid, fun, and flattering images against the backdrop of the great outdoors. Whether capturing a loving smile between engaged or newlywed couples or photographing the wedding itself, she invests in each shoot, throwing herself into capturing small gestures and details with an eye for artistic composition that can play down the poor timing of an alien invasion. When not shooting weddings, family portraits, or senior pictures, EmilieCarol sends off prop-laden photo booths to parties and events under the supervision of one or two attendants.
