A woman in a gown runs through a fountain. A little girl wearing Mickey Mouse ears watches an airplane as it rolls up to the gate. The footprints of newlyweds mark a red carpet. The images that photographer Jason Domingues captures aren't always expected. In fact, Domingues seeks out unpredictable angles and hones in on surprising details while snapping shots for weddings, family portraits, engagement sessions, and senior pictures. The memory preservation specialist has been featured in the New York Times for his innovative approach to photography and was named a Fear Less Photographer––1 of about 900 photographers nationwide who create artful, sometimes avant-garde wedding portraits.
Unlike many professional artists, Domingues loves to share his secrets, hosting classes for shutterbugs of all skill levels to learn how to effectively use cameras to generate awe-inspiring photos of landscapes and politicians checking their mail. His in-class lectures acquaint beginners to basic concepts, he also takes more advanced students to the city streets and provides ongoing critique and tips while watching them frame shots.
During his over 20 years as a professional photographer, Adrian Vega has strived to inject excitement into his photo shoots. Although Adrian Vega confessed to PhotoShelter that he focused on weddings at the beginning of his photographic career, he always felt like there were moments worth capturing beyond nuptial ceremonies.

In his 1,400-square-foot studio, Adrian Adrian also harnesses his insatiable energy to craft sets, props, and gadgets that enhance each shoot, a dedication to his work that has earned him two consecutive first prizes in the Latino Art Bravisimo contest and a half-page spread in the French magazine Photo.
