Big Sound and Picture’s green screen allows subjects to pose in front of any imaginable background—and the screen’s sandwich technology expands the nearly limitless options. This technique allows editors to “sandwich” subjects inside background tableaus, rather than only positioning them in front of them. This means subjects can pose standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, walking down a virtual staircase, or sprawling across the hood of a Lamborghini while a hologram car dealer runs their credit check in the background. The photography team incorporates this technology into shoots of all styles at their private home studio, capturing everything from carefree family portraits to risqué boudoir sessions.
Founder Rebecca Wolf also has a background in radio, and she draws on it to complement photography services with DJ offerings. She and her handpicked team of DJs spin at weddings, parties, and other special events, playing jams or backing tracks for karaoke performances.
Sooters’ multitalented team takes a photojournalistic approach to each shoot to fully capture essential stills, with services ranging from graduation portraits to wedding photography. With more than two decades of business experience, photogs evoke a befitting in-studio atmosphere for subjects with a choice of backdrops including mottled colours, holiday motifs, and strangers’ family portraits. Post-shoot, clients select a favourite image to be immortalized in-house as an 11”x14” print or burnished onto the face of a flattened wooden nickel.
A good photograph doesn't just capture a moment in time. It captures everything that surrounds and anticipates that moment—the four years leading up to graduation, the nine months before a baby's birth, or a long courtship that will soon end in marriage. The photographers of RiZel Photography do everything they can to capture images that represent their clients' lives, and the results are seldom short of stunning. Their casual, low-key demeanor helps clients relax under the camera's lens, and the result is a framed photograph or scrapbook that's worth saving for years to come.
After modeling in LA and Europe, Randall Scott found himself behind the camera, embarking on a 15-year career that saw his work grace the pages of magazines such as GQ, DNR, and Vogue. Scott's extensive experience with modeling as well as photography led him to develop a style that, like Arthur Fonzarelli after a hot-stone massage, is hip, youthful, and relaxed. As a specialist in senior and yearbook shoots, Scott immortalizes each subject's prime of life with striking, personalized portraiture and expertly styled hair and makeup.
The woman behind the lens at Snuggles Photography, Britney Kalanik, falls back on more than three years of experience while capturing life's milestones in a tasteful, artistic manner. A mother herself, Britney relates directly to the families, parents, and children she works with, and applies the same passion she has for snapping shots of her own daughter to her professional craft. Inside her spacious studio or at an outdoor location, Britney bends every session around the needs of her clients. She specializes in maternity portraits but also uses her keen eye to shoot weddings, seniors, and newborns.
The term “pin-up” usually evokes an image of a scantily clad woman, but The Dudeoir Loft approaches the art form from a slightly different angle. Though its photographer started off shooting women and couples, she now opens up the world of boudoir photography to men. So, instead of donning red lipstick or fishnets, photo-shoot subjects prep with a spray tan or eyebrow manscaping before flexing biceps for the camera. Afterward, the photographer retouches digital images and sets them to music for a sultry slide show, which you can view in private or at a really awkward rehearsal dinner.
