Narrative Images Photography is an award winning photography studio led by professional photographers Richard Unis and Bernadette Johnston. We specialize in fine art photojournalism wedding photography and portraiture. We have been voted one of San Diego's top two photography studios.
While most weddings take a matter of hours, the memories can last forever. That’s where the photographers at Aptera Studios step in. They capture elegant, artistic shots of each client’s special day—from brides applying their makeup to the last dance of the evening—and even swoop in months before for on-location engagement photo shoots. The professionals then emblazon these images onto prints and tuck them safely between the pages of wedding albums.
The Art of Framing's skilled craftspeople protect and prolong the life of treasured paintings, photographs, and three-dimensional artifacts by encasing them behind thousands of frame designs. Outside of their standard framing services, technicians also stretch mats and fabrics; heat-mount delicate documents; and mend scratched, chipped, and shrink-rayed framework. More than merely preserving personal collections of photos and posters, The Art of Framing promotes the area's thriving art community, hosting a show once a year as well as selling local artists' work in the gift shop.
Ray Street Custom Framing owner Michelle Robinson stuffs her store with one-of-a-kind picture holders. Cosset a canvas in Peruvian-leather or hand-forged metal mouldings ($40–$100/foot), or opt for a basic black-wood frame ($10/foot) to shelter a particularly eye-catching parking ticket. Prices vary, but $100 can usually get a basic 11”x14” frame with a single mat and glass, a 16”x20” frame with glass but no mat, or an imaginary frame with a zillion invisible mats. A trained artist herself, Robinson hosts a stop on the Ray at Night Art Walk on the second Saturday of every month, showcasing work by local artists that she has custom-framed.
