A woman in a gown runs through a fountain. A little girl wearing Mickey Mouse ears watches an airplane as it rolls up to the gate. The footprints of newlyweds mark a red carpet. The images that photographer Jason Domingues captures aren't always expected. In fact, Domingues seeks out unpredictable angles and hones in on surprising details while snapping shots for weddings, family portraits, engagement sessions, and senior pictures. The memory preservation specialist has been featured in the New York Times for his innovative approach to photography and was named a Fear Less Photographer––1 of about 900 photographers nationwide who create artful, sometimes avant-garde wedding portraits.
Unlike many professional artists, Domingues loves to share his secrets, hosting classes for shutterbugs of all skill levels to learn how to effectively use cameras to generate awe-inspiring photos of landscapes and politicians checking their mail. His in-class lectures acquaint beginners to basic concepts, he also takes more advanced students to the city streets and provides ongoing critique and tips while watching them frame shots.
At Bing Boing Bounce, children aged 12 and younger ricochet like excited electrons through the seven colorful bounce houses situated within Bing Boing Bounce’s high-ceilinged, brightly colored facility. In addition to houses, barefoot tykes gambol through a 40-foot obstacle course, soar down slides, or don a padded helmet and joust in the bounce arena. Once kids have burned off excess energy or perfected Buzz Aldrin impersonations, they can lounge in Bing Boing Bounce’s seating area and sip juice boxes from the concession stand.
Michelle of Pink Dandelion Photography takes a playful approach to capturing portraits. She often uses off-kilter angles and unique close-ups, always staying on the lookout for candid shots. She can snap memorable photos indoors or out, in the hazy morning or at twilight, and in classic black and white or vibrant color. The business also offers wedding videography to ensure all the big day’s big moments are preserved, from the bridesmaids’ preparation to the moment when the best man rides his motorcycle through the wedding cake.
Customers can take their own photos by renting Pink Dandelion’s KC Hoot Booth, a full-size, touch-screen photo booth. Equipped with props such as animal hats, crowns, and oversized sunglasses, the booth dispenses black-and-white and full-color prints to help partygoers remember a fun event forever.
