Though their photography and videography has appeared in Sports Illustrated and on CNN, husband-and-wife duo Preston and Holly didn’t develop their skills overnight. Before the advent of digital photography, Preston labored in an old-fashioned darkroom, mastering the ins and outs of his craft, while Holly filmed sporting events at Cypress Ridge High School. As time clicked by one frame at a time, the duo built their skills and their vision, eventually laying the foundation of Injoy Media Productions.
Today, Preston and Holly lead four trained shutterbugs who capture the personalities of families, children, and seniors in their natural habitats—whether that be in a backyard or an aluminum-foil castle. The photographers' specialty, however, remains weddings, and to capture couples' vows and ceremonies they travel across the state and oceans. Snapping their shutters for upward of four hours, camera-wielders preserve memories with prints as large as 16”x20” and commemorative items such as press-printed albums. Meanwhile, two videographers film the proceedings for up to 10 hours before splicing footage into a highlight reel and an edited movie set to music or a choir of sobbing in-laws. To further enliven receptions or other events, Injoy Media Productions rents out photo booths accompanied by trunks of props, unlimited 4”x6” prints, and scrapbooks made onsite.

Color Tyme Photography?s owner John Billingsley calls himself a photojournalist, a term he borrowed from his bachelor of arts degree in photojournalism. He aims to document life as it occurs, wherever it occurs, whether he?s snapping article-worthy shots for a newspaper, taking in the sights and sounds of nature, or memorializing someone?s wedding day. Billingsley cites his primary inspiration as Ansel Adams, a film photographer who obsessed over the interplay of light and shadow. ?He was about [the] realism of the photo,? Billingsley says, ?I am about the realism of the moment and catching the natural light.?
