We specialize in photography for every occasion and photo restoration. We do NOT do photo prints, but instead provide customers with a disc with all of the images and a print release so you can print your pictures wherever, whenever, in whatever size, as many times as you want. We are available weeknights and weekends.
From her portfolio of skillfully edited black-and-white and color accented photos, it’s clear that Alex Rae is skilled in the technical aspects of photography. But she brings more than technical skill to her shoots; her deft social skills allow her to understand each subject's personal style and goals for their pictures, no matter if she's photographing a nervous bride or a baby bashful about his lack of teeth. Subjects can schedule photo shoots in the Alex Rae Photography studio or at a location of their own choice.
Experienced photographer Steve Kowalski brings 20 years of fine-art and photojournalism experience to each photo shoot at A Better Exposure. Steve's portrait style includes color as well as black-and-white film, and he approaches each subject, from families to pets to recent college grads, with a desire to capture each distinct personality. During in-studio sessions, he serves refreshments while talking casually with clients in his lounge. Clients can have their shoots inside Steve's spacious studio, outfitted with a range of backdrops and canvases, or can take advantage of his expertise in on-location sessions that incorporate the beauty of the surrounding Omaha area. After each shoot, Steve retires to an advanced digital darkroom where he edits and retouches images, and removes any photo-bombing bunny rabbits. Customers can then purchase prints, photo books, and other products such as slideshows from A Better Exposure.
PeggyBank understands that it takes a lot of faith to let go of your memories, even temporarily. That's why they designed a multi-step process to set their clients' minds at ease when sending precious VHS tapes, photographs, and rolls of film to be converted into digital files. The process begins with customers packing their treasured media into a PeggyBox, a crush- and shock-resistant container equipped with waterproof bags to safeguard contents from rain or water-balloon fights in the post office. Upon receiving the packages, PeggyBank's technicians assess the contents and provide an estimate before converting videos and images into the appropriate type of file, which are then hosted by PeggyBank for clients to download at their convenience. Finally, PeggyBank bids adieu to clients' original copies as they ship them safely back home.
Aaron Zeller understands that great photography goes beyond pretty scenery and broad smiles—it’s about telling a story. He founded AJZeller Photography in 2009 as a way to document genuine emotions—from a young couple’s love to a family’s joyful new addition—unsullied by contrived poses or smiles enlarged with clown makeup. Aaron specializes in what he calls Beloved photography, a style that strives to capture the raw, unfiltered love of a couple through real-life interactions instead of coached emotions. He offers wedding, portrait, and engagement photography as well as a unique program—A Life Remembered—that records the passing of time through yearly photo sessions, discounted prints, and hourly polaroids of a grandfather clock.
Suzie DaSilva is a hunter of honest moments. Both inside her studio and at client-chosen locations, she strives to fit familial affection, infant laughter, and blossoming romance into her photos. To better preserve the sentiment behind the smile, she encourages spontaneity in her subjects, who range from children to high-school seniors to wedding couples. She also creates collages, blending action shots with portraits to capture clients' favorite hobbies or the dynamic of their all-clone soccer teams.
