Photographer Peter Furla sees a potential shot wherever he looks. To him, the "L" stop at Randolph and Wabash is a backdrop for an engagement photo. One of Chicago's old, time-worn buildings is the perfect spot for a newly married couple—still clad in tuxedo and gown—to pose for their wedding photos. Or maybe the photographer stays in-studio, allowing himself complete control over every shot. It's in the studio that he often creates portraits for children and families.
Peter Furla developed a creative eye at an early age thanks to his father, who originally opened Furla Photography in 1945—a family owned operation in business for two generations. Peter started working alongside his father in 1978, and he hasn't stopped snapping photos since. His work has led to numerous awards and features in well-known publications.
As a complement to Peter Furla's photography, Chris Chibucos runs FurlaVision, the studio's video arm. Mr. Chibucos and his team—who have won their own fair share of accolades—shoot and edit high-definition footage of weddings and special events. The result is a finished product as stylish and panoptic as a documentary film.

Spots and stains sail into the sunset at The Greener One-Price-Cleaner, a full-service and environmentally conscious haven for waterless washing. Plants breathe a collective sigh of contentment as professional cleaners make soiled vestments sparkle with organic solvents before storing them for pickup in biodegradable garment bags. For a set price of $1.99, pants and ties worn during pie-eating contests and too-powerful power lunches undergo a thorough cleaning and pressing, and shirts hung on the dry moving rack shiver with excitement knowing their last horrifying home bath need never be repeated, as each dry cleanse costs a friendly $0.99. Patrons already boasting meticulous torso tents can finally jump on beds with reckless abandon before sending complete sets of bed linens in for cleaning that leaves them feeling softer than a baby-powdered puppy. The Greener One-Price-Cleaner also freshens up precious leather and furs and preserves wedding dresses with an in-house service for future brides-to-be.
For more than 100 years, United Parcel Service's recognizable brown trucks have been showing up on doorsteps in a timely fashion. Founded in 1907 as a messenger company, UPS has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation by enabling commerce to travel the globe. Now the world's largest package-delivery company and a recognized name in specialized transportation and logistics services, UPS's legions manage the flow of goods, funds, and grandmas' cookies in more than 200 countries. The UPS Store's obliging staff and reputation for reliable package conveyance attracts all types of packers, shippers, and printers. Packers regularly stop in for masking-tape rolls and other do-it-yourself supplies. Alternatively, senders can enlist the skillful packing of the store's staffers, who will deftly seal boxes and cushion contents with bubble wrap or styrofoam peanut-butter sandwiches. In addition to packaging services and supplies, UPS Stores proffer printing services for large-quantity flyer makers and mailbox rentals for lazy messenger pigeons. Each independently owned location abides by the company's rigorous cargo standards and solemn Pack & Ship Promise.
