Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.

Blake “Top Dogg” Rashad has spent more than 30 years earning his nickname. At age 12, Blake began training neighborhood dogs, a talent that would later lead him to prep military pooches for action during his enlistment in the Army. After his time in the service, Rashad joined the Atlanta police force to train crime-fighting canines.
Today, the expert in dog behavior hosts a weekly Internet radio show about dog behavior, local pet businesses, and canine-related news—playfully called “You Talk I Bark”—and also heads up Top Dogg K-9 Academy. At the academy, Rashad teaches dog owners the training techniques he has accumulated over the past three decades. Pooches leave six- or eight-week courses with a better understanding of how to communicate their needs to owners, and owners leave with dogs that respond quickly to commands such as “heel” and “drop my wedding ring.”

Whether by suds, professional polish, leather conditioners, or tinted window film, the technicians at Miami Auto Spa keep cars looking sharp enough to make a stop sign blush.

Cars don’t need to be dirty to benefit here, though. Window tinting gives the car a sleek look and the driver protection and privacy, and rim repairs further add to the car’s overall aesthetic.
