Russell Walker and Steve Williams have over 25 years combined experience in the photography business. We have photographed everything from weddings in Jamaica to models on South Beach.
We love to photograph everything but we specialize in high school seniors, babies, and weddings.
American Tent and Event Rentals helps party planners host memorable events with a wealth of furnishings and decorative accents. Handsome linen cloths drape over buffet and cocktail tables, while spacious pole and frame tents keep guests shady and dry in all kinds of weather. Strands of lobe lights cast a charming glow on wedding receptions, while can spotlights zero in on the teary toasts of best men and sneaky cake thievery of ringbearers. Sturdy hardwood dancefloors host hours of moves and steps, and custom-designed stages support ensemble cast productions, DJ booths, and fashion runway shows with safe, secure construction.
Michelle Childs Beedle practically grew up performing—she began at the ripe young age of 3. Since then, she's taught competitive singers, snagged roles in various movies, and even won two Emmy awards. With Antonia Studios, she shares her talents not only through voice and piano lessons, but also by painting faces and hosting princess parties.
Complete Music's repertoire of services actually extends well beyond the wedding DJing from which it takes its name. The staff includes photographers, videographers, lighting designers, and photo booth technicians, all of whom lend their services to help preserve memories. While DJs put together song lists tailored to the tastes of the bride and groom, the rest of the team tirelessly illuminates and records the day. In total, they help produce over 13,000 weddings each year, which is two more weddings than Henry VIIIth had in his entire life.
At Screenland, campy and classic are rarely mutually exclusive terms. The movie theater serves as a cinematic time machine, transporting spectators through the history of Hitchcock's mysteries and straight into the heyday of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Though it also shows current titles, its schedule is often beholden to audience whims—the Crossroads location hosts new independent films that are uniquely screened at this sole location. This dual devotion to cherished and modern flicks helped Screenland earn the 2012 Readers' Choice award for Best Movie Theater from the Pitch.
Even outside the projection room, nostalgia rules. More than 40 games, from Donkey Kong to Missile Command, test dexterity at the Crossroads location's retro arcade, where guests can purchase passes to play indefinitely or until Frogger finally flags down a cab. Photographs taken by former Kansas City mayor Dick Berkley accompany historical trivia in the adjacent gallery, and celebrity handprints mark the outdoor patio. Greeting cinephiles out front is a marquee salvaged from the Isis Theatre, just as it once greeted a young Walt Disney when he shared his early animations there.
Wedding receptions and corporate meetings alike have taken advantage of the theater's capacity for private functions. At both exclusive and public events, however, a full-service bar supplies guests with libations, cracking open bottles of Boulevard Pale Ale and Tallgrass Velvet Rooster.
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a polished, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket, a family heirloom, or the wishbone from grandma's first Thanksgiving.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond prints, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution MyImages CDs, gallery wraps, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
