Husband-and-wife photographers Diona and Chris are a perfect pair in more ways than one. Since forming DCWilliams Photography, the two have adopted a team approach to photo shoots, complementing each other’s camera styles and making sure that one-of-a-kind moments don’t go unphotographed.
During nuptial shoots, they split up to collect separate images of each spouse-to-be preparing to walk down the aisle, and at the reception, they track events from two angles with the concentration of seasoned journalists. For portrait sessions with families and youngsters, they stage their subjects against romantic, dreamy outdoor backdrops, such as a woodland clearing, a rustic railroad, or a swirling gateway to the netherworld. Their playful attitudes come across in their children's portraits, as kids carry flowers and smile through empty picture frames. On the other side of the spectrum, they also do boudoir shoots, positioning plush couches and bathtubs on the grass to support subjects’ sensual poses.

Light is important to Diamonds&Desire's photographers. They take an advanced and creative approach to lighting, using strobe lights and modifiers to ensure that they can shoot in any location. Priding themselves on not depending on natural lighting, they can capture dynamic images even in dark bars and the Realm of the Shadow People. They make sure that their photographs are not underexposed or blown out, and can manipulate lights to make the images look stylized or as though they had been taken in natural light. And their main studio, too, is decked out with professional lighting, ready to host commercial shoots, fashion editorials, and client sessions. The skilled photographers deftly illuminate the scene as they snap family portraits, head shots, and sensual boudoir images.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
