Unlike the DMV, Jay Young Photography is dedicated to delivering customized portraits that capture the style, personality, and correct number of heads of their subjects. Named a Photographic Craftsman by the Professional Photographers of America for his dedication to the profession, "Mr. Jay" (as he's affectionately known) also handcrafted his custom studio. The various stone and wood façades of the Tuscan-style building serve as backdrops to perfectly tilted chins and mistimed eye-blinks alike. Opt to have your session inside the studio or in the one-acre private portrait garden, which features three different bridges, a canal, an English garden, an Alamo set, a beach, a railroad depot, and a mini Parthenon. Once you've finished casting your family as characters in the sword-and-sandals beach-party train-robbery caper of your dreams, Mr. Jay will use his retouching sorcery to transform your favorite image into diversely sized prints, as well as a handsome Facebook image that doesn't involve you hoisting a red plastic cup.
In 1972, Raymond Dauphinais was an army air traffic controller in Germany who had never given much thought to photography. That all changed when he caught a glimpse of the castle in the small town where he was stationed. Seized with inspiration, he grabbed a camera and spent the day capturing the ancient fort. When he came back home, his newfound passion for photography ignited a four-decade career as a professional photographer. Specializing in head shots, family portraits, and corporate event coverage, Raymond's studio also offers classes that help amateurs improve their skills to enhance family albums and ensure they can capture photographic evidence of neighbors stealing blades of grass.
Metroplex Photo Booth’s open-air photo stations allow even large groups of revelers to stuff themselves into memorable strips. The self-service booths instruct their inhabitants via an LCD monitor, showing the camera’s footage in real time so parties can form attractive tableaus, whether in black and white or color. An attendant remains with the booth at all times to help technologically confused guests, dispense unlimited photo strips, and teach smiling to anyone who missed that day in school. The memory catchers offer a number of additional amenities to personalize the experience including magnetic frames, scrapbooks, and props.

Whether they immortalize moms-to-be showing off baby bumps or seniors chewing diplomas, print packages fill wallets with creative snapshots or decorate mantelpieces with images more elegant than a gazelle in a top hat.
A glance across Skipping Stone Studio's portfolio relates stories of families, newborns, and high-school seniors through vivid imagery. To capture these memories, three passionate photographers snap shots within a 3,000-square-foot studio. Here, camera wielders and customers work together to select the perfect backdrops, poses, and pronunciations of the word "cheese." Alternatively, the photographers can also travel to remote locations to stage shoots within homes or particularly attractive forests. Skipping Stone's staff then professionally edits individual images before transforming them into prints, collages, and photo albums.
