For more than 20 years, the professional photographers at Charlie's Angels Photography have worked to capture images that not only preserve memories but also incorporate artistic touches. Their digital galleries boast shots from larger occasions such as weddings and runway shows to private events such as boudoir and portrait sessions. Their staff also includes professional makeup artists, who can prep subjects for shoots or gussy up complexions before weddings or high-school-graduation re-enactments.
Racks of frames in a rainbow of woods, colors, and finishes hang from the walls of Frame 2000 and Frames Galore, ready to be custom-fitted to clients’ treasured images. With skills honed during more than 20 years in business, staffers can shield eclectic items, such as needlework, canvases, art prints, and mirrors, behind glittering glass. Specialized printing equipment can also produce full-size posters, transfer images to canvas, or accentuate a favorite alien-autopsy photo with Andy Warhol–esque pop-art effects.
Allan Jeffries has been providing friendly framing services to all sorts of picture possessors since 1984, including fine artists, professional photographers, and people who know someone who has been candidly captured within six feet of Kevin Bacon. The studio's team of talented framers specialize in museum-style archival methods and are well versed in the matting, mounting, and framing of both two- and three-dimensional pieces. Possible enclosable keepsakes including paintings, drawings, certificates and diplomas (around $100 with black wood frame and glass), limited-edition prints, posters (about $79 for a 24"x36", and about $89 for a 27"x40" movie-size poster with metal frame, drymount, and glass), family photos, children's art, coins, Roger Rabbits, and stitch-work projects. For the truly conservation-minded, a high-quality photograph with black wood frame, acid-free matte border, and UV-protective Plexiglas can run around $300.

Custom framing varies by size and choice of materials; however, at Second Street Framing, picture pamperers can tuck an art print into a conservation-grade mat and a 19"x19" black wood frame for $98. Frame a diploma in black wood (around $100) to hang behind desks and remind clients that you graduated from middle school.
