To Olena, each event and every person is unique, so she strives to honor that uniqueness with a photographic style that is both artistic and playful. The playfulness comes from the laid-back, light-hearted setting she fosters during photo sessions, which allows clients to relax and be themselves, and the artistic composition comes from her experience in photography and degree in multimedia and computer imaging. She shoots everything from weddings and portraits to headshots and baby sessions, and can enhance all sessions with products such as custom photo albums and frames.

As a recently wed couple, Shawn and Jonah Amos are familiar with the pressure couples can feel to make their wedding or event memorable. Now, the Amoses send out photo booths loaded up with fun amenities that ensure guests at any function can walk away with a pleasant memento. Guests can play with props such as bow ties, giant hats, and marker boards with personalized messages, and have shots taken in color or black and white. After the shoot, photo strips are printed out emblazoned with the host’s choice of custom logo, such as an extremely general marriage proposal. All photos from the event are stored online for future perusal and printing, and add-ons including memory albums give hosts a keepsake of their own.

Shannon Holt, a mostly self-taught photographer who learned her craft by doing copious amounts of research on the Internet, created Studio77 Photography in 2008.

She prides herself on empowering women during daring boudoir shoots and has developed her own editing techniques to add the finishing touches on images.
