When cast members from The Real Housewives of New Jersey stopped at Marra's Restaurant for a bite, the owner asked neighboring photographer Mike Kortoci to take a picture. The ladies loved his work so much that, after a tour of his studio, they asked Mike to film an on-camera segment for the show. Snapping shots of celebs isn't uncommon for Mike—according to Ridgewood News, his famous clientele has included the Baldwin brothers and America's Next Top Model –winner CariDee English.
For the most part, however, Mike lends his artistic eye and more than 20 years of experience to creating customized portraits for his everyday clients, including kids and families. He snaps primarily black-and-white images during on-location shoots and inside his 2,000-square-foot studio. Afterward, he retouches clients' favorite shots, removing red eye or blinking specters, and preserves them on canvas or watercolor-paper prints.

Inside the office, a burbling waterfall joins with colorful pieces of artwork, relaxing visiting patients. Five treatment rooms spoke off from the main lobby, ensconcing guests in alcoves of cool blues and plush beds as they enjoy the healing benefits of chiropractic treatment, massage, and acupuncture.
