Retouch Factory is committed to serving its community, whether by helping clients preserve cherished memories through photographs, by strengthening local businesses with logo-design services, or by donating 7 percent of its proceeds to charity. The founder, an active member of the United States Air Force, strongly believes in the Air Force's values and strives to work hard for each client.
Retouch's photographers snap pictures of weddings and families, and they particularly love capturing candid moments of wedding parties sharing a laugh over an inside joke or babies throwing an adorable tantrum over not having coconut water on set. When creating business logos, Retouch's designers don't just do something because it looks good—they do extensive research on the market they're designing for and on the product itself in order to create the best possible design.

Nicole Slohoda so loved taking pictures of her own family that she decided to extend her talent to others. Through her self-named photography business, she snaps photos in-studio and outdoors, depending on the weather and her clients' desired aesthetic. She excels when babies, children, and families are in front of the lens, and she can send clients their final images on a disc or in print.

People planning weddings often have to choose between elaborately staged poses and the dynamic, candid shots that provide a realistic account of the happy day. The founders of Abacus Wedding Studios ignore that dichotomy, believing there to be a place for both photography styles at important events. Mixing traditional and photojournalistic styles, their photo snappers work with brides, grooms, and their families to make sure everyone gets the shots they dream of. Together, they create a custom wedding-day preparation worksheet that lays out shooting plans with plenty of time for large-scale portraits, intimate snaps, and sequential shots of the first cake slice being smashed in the father of the bride's face.
