At age 16, when most girls swoon for dreamy eyes and dimples, Kellie McCann fell for a Canon AE-1. After graduating with a degree in photojournalism and winning awards freelancing for newspapers, she opened her eponymous studio. Honing her talent over nearly two decades, Kellie has documented dozens of weddings and family portraits. During portrait sessions, Kellie adapts the scarlet hues of sunset or sunny yellow light of a bright afternoon to frame her subjects in natural light when possible—an organic principle she maintains whether capturing the smiles of children or the paralyzing fear in newly engaged couples' eyes.
Even before they picked up their first cameras, Sloan and Steele Knudson were learning how to frame a beautiful image. Steele was a film student at the University of Southern California, where he also took on a full-time job working on Hollywood movie sets. Sloan was a theater director in New York City, where she helped stage a wide variety of productions. But they eventually found their way to photography and founded Belle Eden Studio as a full-service studio where clients can come to not only have portraits taken, but also get their hair and makeup done and be guided through the shoot by modeling consultants (particularly helpful for their boudoir sessions). And thanks to their location on Tybee Island, they have access to the historic lighthouse, whether people just want it in the background or to have their photo taken from the viewing deck at its top.
