Framing in Irvine

Select Local Merchants

FastFrame’s skilled framers customize borders for an array of wall-worthy pieces. Selecting from an extensive inventory of materials, they craft frames to showcase original artwork or to endow special photographs with a dignified display. Their carefully curated conservation materials prevent works of art from fading and prevent their subjects from sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. But the framesmiths don't limit themselves to two dimensions—sports memorabilia, kids’ artwork, and other three-dimensional objects find artistic preservation within shadowboxes. They even transform flat-screen TVs into customized, framed works of art by installing a VisionArt feature, which transmits the still image of a painting, family portrait, or favorite infomercial onto idle screens.:m]]

Though engaged couples often fear long ceremonies will bore guests, they still hire Chloe Atnip to make their weddings last for decades. Her wedding shoots, which she strives to match to each couples’ unique style, capture meaningful moments for posterity, from the bride’s walk down the aisle to the groom’s walk around the bride as he checks her for scurvy.

From her studio in Old Town Tustin or on location in the scenic landscapes that surround it, Atnip can snap shots in a variety of styles. She just as artfully captures children playing with buckets of fruit, families silhouetted against a sunset, or high-school seniors considering whether to call their graduation speech “Good Job, Guys” or just “Good Job.”

Bradford Rowley's manually finished portraiture evokes the classic regality of a time when the paintbrush was mightier than the Polaroid. Each personally appointed opus begins life as a photograph in the artist's controlled studio environment. Individual subjects can regale the camera eye with defining aspects of their personality or hobbies, augmenting poses with props such as a violin, a horse-riding crop, or a high-school-mascot costume. After that, clients select a single shot to serve as the base of the future masterpiece. Up to eight layers of paint ensconce this initial image in the trappings of old Europe during the ensuing three-month artistic process. Bradford's team of classical crafters employs digital processes only when absolutely necessary, discreetly expunging unsightly bits of lint or the ghost of Warren G. Harding.

Orange County visual artist Don Le has a passion for expressing his subjects' inner beauty and personality. In his career in photography and video production, Le's portfolio spans across a wide range of styles, from wedding compositions to celebrity and fashion photoshoots to family portraits. Le's pieces often splash with a dreamy saturation of color, and he can upgrade a shot with his playful, inventive use of lighting, computer-generated backgrounds, and various angles. During three-hour photography courses, Le teaches students how to visualize and create photo compositions of their very own. Those courses include pointers in both outdoor and indoor photography, so you can properly capture Bigfoot in either the woods or a department store.
